State ment to fix NC's Woe's/Budget

Legalize Marijuana. Allow the state to sell it only through ABC Commission.Must be 21 to consume/buy.
Marijuana should be legalized for several reasons. First, the state could earn money from the sale. NC would be in positive numbers within 1 year getting out of debt! Its value to the medical world outweighs its potential abuse, and because of its importance to the paper and clothing industries. Legalization should be considered despite efforts made by groups, which say marijuana is a harmful drug that will increase crime rates and lead users to other more dangerous substances.
Alcohol is one of the most toxic drugs, and using just 10 times what one would use to get the desired effect can lead to death. Marijuana is one of – if not the – least toxic drugs, requiring thousands of times the dose one would use to get the desired effect to lead to death. This “thousands of times” is actually theoretical, since there has never been a recorded case of marijuana overdose.
