Marijuana is a medicinal plant, it has been used in traditional Indian Medicine and is a part of Indian Culture (Mainly Hinduism and Lord Shiva). Legalization of Marijuana is an eventuality, The War on Drugs has failed in the USA ,and the USA has now legalized or decriminalized marijuana, both for Medicinal and Recreational use.

Marijuana legalization will add a whole new sector into the economy, increasing taxes for the Government, at the time it needs liquidity the most. (2020 Recession) 

Legalization will also open doors for more medical research to be done on the plant, Also increasing our knowledge of naturally occurring cannabinoids in our own bodies.

The Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA), has said that the cannabinoids and cannabis, need to be researched in depth, India could become a hot spot for medical research on Cannabis.

The JAMA has also stated, in a meta-analysis of a marijuana and it's effects, that it is a lot more safer than alcohol and  tobacco, which are already legal in most of the world.

Marijuana is a big threat to the Alcohol, Tobacco and Pharmaceutical Industries and Interests, which have spent a great amount of time and money fighting against legalization in the past.

Legalization will also limit the exposure of its' users, to the criminal world of the marijuana, which is already well established in most of India. Marijuana is already Legal in the State of Uttar Pardesh, why shouldn't  we legalize it at the Federal level.

Since the benefits of Legalization are much greater than the costs of keeping it illegal, and since it will happen eventually in most of the world, we should pressure our leaders now. Reach your local representatives on this very serious issue.
