There are a number of reasons both political left and right should support relegalization of Hemp/Marijuana. Liberals will see great benefits in the advancement of the human condition. Conservatives will see a lot less money spent.Both will see an increase in revenues to government as well as seeing government getting out of personal lives.

Here in Indiana, there is support on both sides of the aisle for relegalization. Brent Steele, a powerful Republican, and Karen Tallian, a leading Democrat, both say they’ll introduce legislation to decriminalize small amounts of Marijuana.

On a national level, this past election saw left and right coalesce to achieve more freedom for all. Let’s hope that happens in Indiana, especially in light of a recent Howey poll that shows 54% of Hoosiers want an end to Marijuana prohibition.
