The growth of cannabis business in the United States and abroad is important for several reasons:
The legal cannabis industry has created jobs and generated significant tax revenue in many states and countries where it has been legalized.
Cannabis has been shown to have medicinal benefits for conditions such as chronic pain, nausea, and anxiety, and can be used as an alternative to conventional medications.
Cannabinoids interact with a neurosignaling system that plays a vital role in regulating homeostasis of self. This system influences many functions related to health, in appetite, cognition, learning, immune responses, memory, mood, pain sensation, sleep, and more.
The legalization of cannabis has led to a reduction in the stigma associated with the plant, with many people now viewing it as a safer alternative to more dangerous substances.
Criminal Justice Reform
The legalization of cannabis has reduced the number of people incarcerated for nonviolent drug offenses, freeing up resources for law enforcement to focus on more serious crimes.
Industrial cannabis, or hemp fiber, is a highly renewable and regeneratable crop that efficiently cleanses the air and soil around it. This crop can provide alternatives for plastic, paper, cardboard, fabric, rope, building materials and biodiesel fuel.
