With our economy stuck in a seemingly never-ending recession and our national education averages dropping steadily, one might look to the dirt in thought and think of things that grow from it for answers. States like Texas and New Mexico have begun to drill for oil and it has been very beneficial to the job market but as we all know by now, oil does not last forever and soon enough those jobs will be dried up as the reserves we drill from. Jobs in education have increased their pay over the past decade and hopefully that will be good for our kids as well as theirs but babies being born is in a drastic decline and twenty years from now we might just have computer systems to teach in our institutes of learning. So a simple thought built into a short statement; Can marijuana save our economy? People to grow it, people to test it, people to regulate it and a system to sell it… What do you think?
