Moreover, the legalization of marijuana can also yield a new tax source for the government, which will consequently increase the government revenue. When this argument is viewed in perspective of the current economic situation, it can be noted that the argument makes a lot of sense. Indeed, that is the case since at the moment, most of the returns from cannabis business ends up with criminal gangs that control its trade in various regions around the world. However, that situation would be changed since if marijuana was legalized, the government would control its trade. According to Gallup (2013), the number of Americans who favor legalization of marijuana has consistently been on the increase with the figure reaching its highest level in October 2013 as 58% of the Americans were found to favor legalization of marijuana. In that perspective, it can be argued that, the fact that an increasing number of Americans favor legalization of marijuana implies that it is high time the government legalized marijuana.
