Hemp is one of nature’s strongest and most versatile agricultural crops and has many commercial uses. Various parts of the plant may be utilized for making paper, textiles, cosmetics, paints, clothing, foodstuffs, and animal feed. It produces a much higher yield per acre than substitutes such as wood pulp and cotton and requires no pesticides. Cultivating hemp can help Slovak agriculture which also means the Slovak economy. If marijuana is legal, police will save a huge amount of money by not arresting marijuana smokers. On the other hand, our country could not only save money, but it could also make a lot of money with legalization. By opening hundreds of coffee shops in which marijuana could be sold, Slovakia could not only reduce the number of unemployed people, but taxed marijuana could also bring a lot of money to the federal budget. Another source of income for the Slovak federal budget could be tourism (drug tourism) as it is in the Netherlands. The Netherlands is visited yearly by thousands of tourist, who visit this land only to enjoy the use of drugs without fear of being arrested. Comparing the Netherlands and Slovakia, Slovakia has much more to offer than the Netherlands. Slovak nature, mountains, and customs are richer than in Holland so it can be expected that Slovakia would become one of the most popular countries among marijuana-willing tourists.
Decreasing the financial damages caused by prohibition, helping Slovak agriculture, reducing the rate of unemployment, taxing marijuana, and increasing the rate of tourists visiting Slovakia could be a big help for the Slovak economy.
Help for medicine and sick patients
Marijuana prohibition applies to everyone, including the sick and dying. Of all the negatives of prohibition, none is as tragic as the denial of medicinal marijuana. Thousands of seriously ill patients could benefit from its use. This includes cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, AIDS patients suffering from “wasting syndrome, “ glaucoma patients, and those suffering from chronic pain, rheumatoid arthri-tis and a variety of spastic conditions such as multiple sclerosis, paraplegia, quadriplegia, and epilepsy.(Freihsl, 1998, p 21)
Marijuana should be immediately made available by prescription to seriously ill patients. There are a lot of examples which show, that there is only one drug which can really help treat ill patients or some illnesses, and it is marijuana. However, it is really sad that sick people become criminals just because they try to treat their illness.
