More then 300 economists signed a petition declaring the legalization of marijuana could save the government over $13 billion a year, and that's just the start.
The current state of the economy has put millions out of work, and has led to close evaluation of government spending. The the federal deficit is over $1.5 trillion and our country is practically owned by China, Japan, UK and religion. Now the people are speaking up about "common sense" governing, better spending and ridding Washington of corrupt money hording career politicians. Now economists believe they've found a way to make a large step towards repairing our country.
Over 300 economists, including well known experienced forecasters and nobel laureates, have signed a petition siting the findings by Harvard economist Jeffrey Miron. Miron reports that if the government legalized marijuana to be regulated like alcohol and tobacco, the U.S. can save over $7.7 billion a year from not having to enforce prohibition.
