In 2018 only 9 states have legalized recreational marijuana and 29 states have legalized medicinal marijuana. Idaho has not legalized either. It has been an argument lately whether Idaho should jump on the marijuana bandwagon and legalize it.
Some arguments are that if Idaho did legalize it would increase our economic standing because it would bring more money into the state from the shops and pot farms.
Other arguments are that legalizing it would make the felony rates decrease because people would not get in trouble for using it and or dealing it. Both of these arguments are more for recreational marijuana. When it comes to medicinal people will argue that prescribed medical marijuana can help with stress relief, anxiety relief, and pain relief.
Do you think that these arguments would outweigh the downfalls that would come from legalizing marijuana in Idaho? Would we benefit more as a state or would it hurt us? Should we just legalize medical because it is in need more? Or should we continue to not pass the laws to legalize it?
