I believe marijuana and industrial hemp should both be legalized across the board in this country.
Legalizing the 2 can open up much needed industries in this country, and can also keep more money in this country. What I mean by keeping more money in. In my state of Oregon, we have several companies that make hemp based products (food products, bath & body products, even fabric/material products) The hemp these companies use, must be imported from other countries. That's a lot of money leaving my state that really doesn't need to, and could make an impact on my states economic system. There also many industries, especially in the food area/shops area, that can also open up due to legalizing. Again, not only the creation of these businesses but the taxation of these businesses can GREATLY help my state's economy because my state is dependent on personal income tax & business taxes for it's state income/state budgets.
