The legalization of marijuana provided the abolition of penalties for any activity related to cannabis. Commercial regulations control the possession, cultivation, and distribution of weed. Legalization is an essential topic of the 21st century as not so long ago, people have begun to learn about the health benefits of cannabis. Besides, legalization also provides an opportunity to control the traffic of the drug. However, within the US, the weed situation is getting a little confusing since federal laws are different from state laws.
To begin with, all cannabis is banned at the federal level. This herb is classified as a "Schedule I" substance. This means that marijuana is recognized as a harmful ingredient that has no proven medical use. Despite this stringency, most states have legalized the use of cannabis. In turn, the Ministry of Justice announced that it would not sue to block the laws. However, there are specific conditions: the use of marijuana must be controlled. For example, states must prohibit the use of marijuana by minors, control international trade, and help victims of drug abuse.
