I have smoked marijuana for my blood pressure for about 4 years. It prevents me from crossing over into hypertension and for that, this is obviously proven to be much more than a gateway drug. In fact, while most politicians are calling this a gateway drug, it’s been proven to provide as a remedy for more than enough disorders. The only negative about Marijuana is the fact that it’s considered an illicit drug. If legalized, the state would definitely benefit from it. Colorado has displayed a dramatic drop in crime rate since legalization of marijuana. Georgia certainly could stand to lose a few notches when it comes to crime level.
