As the America public cast its vote in the 2016 presidential election, a couple of states also voted on the fate of marijuana laws- probably taking a cue from the states of Washington and Colorado. Massachusetts, Nevada, California, and Maine voted to legalize the use of marijuana for recreational purposes. Three states, North Dakota, Florida, and Arkansas, permitted Marijuana only for medical uses. It is only Arizona that voted against the legalization of Marijuana.

These developments are intriguing and could be a sign of the realization of the American public of the immense benefits of legalization of marijuana. But what could these benefits be?

Increase in Tax Revenue

Perhaps one of the most attractive incentives for states to legalize marijuana is the possibility of increasing tax revenue. Take for instance Washington and Colorado. A local Tacoma cannabis club has brought increased tax revenue to the city. These in-demand dispensaries are credited with pioneering the legalization of marijuana in America. These states have experienced an increase in tax revenue. In 2015, the state of Colorado collected about $135 million in fee and tax on recreational and medical marijuana.

The total marijuana sales in the state of Colorado totaled more than $996 million, while the sales in North America went several notches higher by 30% – reaching staggering proportions of $6.67 billion – in 2016 alone. According to experts, the sales are likely to exceed the $20 billion mark by the year 2021.

With this performance, there is no doubt the marijuana industry is a lucrative one, and any state that intends to widen its revenue base finds it pretty difficult to resist the temptation of legalizing the consumption of the drug.

Increase in Employment Opportunities

The states that legalize marijuana will, as a necessary consequence of the act, set up marijuana dispensaries and nurseries. This will both create jobs and improve the marijuana industry in the respective states.

Medical Benefits of Marijuana to Individuals

Marijuana has immense benefits to its consumers. According to a rising body of research, marijuana can significantly and positively impact the lives of individuals suffering from dementia. It has also been proven that it can help reduce nausea and excessive vomiting in pregnant women. More, it can help the mother maintain a healthy appetite and can improve the baby’s birth weight.

More Effective Criminal Enforcement

The legalization of the drug will free up time for police officers and other enforcement personnel to go after criminals committing other more egregious crimes such as violence.

Safety Controls

When addicts buy weed off the dark alleys where it is usually sold, they wouldn’t have a way of knowing the substances included in it. Current legalization efforts provide a framework for safety control systems – thus, alleviating the risk coming from the consumption of marijuana.

These and many other reasons make the legalization of marijuana such an important and urgent matter.

In September 2016, Israeli doctors became the first in the world to seek medical permission for treating Autism with Medical Marijuana in a clinical trial. Currently some autistic children are being treated with it in an officially sanctioned and doctor monitored program.

Autism is a complicated brain development disorder that normally starts to appear in children with less than three years of age with boys being four times more susceptible to the condition than girls. The disease commonly impacts communication & social skills causing repetitive, restrictive & stereotyped patterns of behavior making patients to often be over- aggressive to people around them.

So how does medical marijuana help with the treatment of Autism?

First autism is not a specific disease. it includes various conditions that are medically labelled as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).Most types of autism are believed to be as a result of insufficient production of natural endocannabinoids by the body which are similar to phytocannabinoids such as THC & CBD found in Marijuana.

There has been a growing number of anecdotal evidence that shows medical marijuana is helpful for adults & children with different forms of autism. Parents with autistic children who have been brave enough to try-out/experiment with medical cannabis have reported notable and long lasting improvements in their children. Studies from The Autism Research Institute (ARI) show that many symptoms of autism can be reduced and controlled through the use of properly dosed marijuana. ARI has pointed out that autism is a highly treatable condition with the efficacy of using medical cannabis varying from one patient to another because there are different types & severities of autism.

In the US, there are a lot of advocacy groups which are campaigning to have autism listed as an eligible condition in medical cannabis states. California is one of the 14 US states that currently allow the use of medical cannabis with a doctor’s prescription. In Pennsylvania, autistic patients are allowed access to the herb which is believed to help them manage aggressiveness and self-harm. Although this product seems to work, parents in many countries in the world still face limitations of using it. There is a clinical research currently ongoing in Israel and hopefully the findings will be able offer quality scientific assertion to match the claims and lead to medical legalization of marijuana in treatment of autism. Meanwhile parents & patients around the world will have to wait until the research is completed in 2018.
