Support for N.C. medical marijuana legalization off to blazing start

Medical Marijuana Posted Feb 27 2015

North Carolina is on the road to legalizing medical marijuana after it's bill passed a first reading in the General Assembly this month. State Representatives and Marijuana Policy leaders agree that not only is it logical, but the evidence shows that ill patients can gain many benefits from medical marijuana. The representatives also agree that contrary to local belief, legalization will not increase marijuana use in their communities. 

“It’s illogical for the government not to legalize marijuana because we could earn money from taxing it, and we could spend less taxpayer money imprisoning kids who were caught with marijuana. All that does is ruin someone’s life and waste taxpayer money,” freshman Emelina Vienneau said.
