Marijuana use should not be a crime. Its healthier than cigarettes or alcohol and it creates no physical dependence. Legalizing it will actually generate a lot of revenue for the government and it will create new jobs. Police officers can stop dealing with petty, non-violent crimes and focus on more important things. Additionally, under the current system, people have to buy marijuana from the black market. Legalizing it would require the government and FDA to regulate it making it much safer then it already is.
