End Federal Prohibition on Marijuana
Many states have legalized marijuana for either medical or recreational use. In Utah, cannabis oil is legal and is used to treat medical conditions such as epilepsy. A recent survey showed that 64% of Utah residents support legal access medical marijuana, and it's possible that Utah could legalize other forms of medical marijuana in the very near future. However, even if the use of marijuana was legalized by Utah, marijuana users could still find themselves in trouble with the federal government.
The federal government should get out of the way of states’ efforts to set their own marijuana policies. A state should be able to legalize marijuana for medical, recreational, or industrial use without interference from the federal government. It's time for the federal government to end its prohibition on marijuana and regulate it the same way as they do alcohol.
