"Colorado, Washington pass marajuana legalization: Oregon says,no" by CNN political unit explains why people want marijuana legalized.
People in Colorado and in Washington say that they have voted yes to Ammendment 64 because they believe the government will use some of the money to fund schools and to helps us get out of debt. Marijuana has been illegal for so long its weird for some people to think anyone would vote yes to Ammendment 64. Ammendment 64 has not been passed or finalized and it will be interesting to see what will happen whether or not it will be passed or if it will fail. By legalizing marijuana America will being allowing narijuana to be sold and consumed, by doing this people might not sell as much or consume as much becuase its illegal and its not as cool to do. It is up to the government to decide what the money goes to and if its not used to do what people who voted for it thought it would be used for will they regret voting yes to it? Legalizing might have opened a new door to either help America or hurt it.
