Legalizing Pot Could Bring in Billions to U.S.

A recent study may have given supporters of legalizing marijuana a major boost: It could bring in $8.7 billion in tax revenue to the U.S., according to a new study. Eighteen states as of now have made marijuana legal for medical uses and 10 states are in the midst of passing laws allowing it, writes the Huffington Post. A recent Pew Poll found that 52 percent of Americans support legalization.
