marijuana legalization

In an interview with vice news, the president of the United States of America, speaks of marijuana legalization. Congress is now considering rescheduling marijuana as a schedule 2 drug instead of a schedule 1 being categorized with LSD, Heroin, and Cocaine. Marijuana being a schedule 1 drug makes it harder for people looking for a new alternative, to be open to marijuana due to the legalities. as more and more states make marijuana friendly laws, congress may consider decriminalizing the drug at  the federal level eventually. marijuana legalization may be more possible now that congress is considering legalizing at the federal level. If we move forward with marijuana legalization this could be great for many reasons, one being elderly people will have safe access to meds, more states will see an increase in tax revenue with marijuana legalization. Hopefully with marijuana legalization we will see more recreational shops.
