Update Date: Dec 12, 2016 06:55 AM EST

Will Cannabis be more of a help or a doom? 21-year-olds and up can now be seen bringing marijuana outdoor and also grow them in their primary homes starting December 15, and 12 pots of this can be planted legally and hassle-freely.

Medical and Recreational Marijuana in one reach

On the other hand, National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) conducted a research on Cannabis as reported by PBS News Hour and found it a huge help to the medical aspect of some individuals' lives.

It is great news for people who suffer from medical conditions but are not allowed to purchase pot without prescription or a card from the doctor. It will be available in one reach.

Depending on the usage, marijuana will either help or lead individuals to death. This means, a marijuana regulatory office should be established as soon as possible to avoid worst case scenario.

Marijuana: Cause of Accidents

Few incidents such as involving car crashes have been reported but, in 2015, only 5.9 tested positive for marijuana in a toxicology routine done to the victims. The study was focused on California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Washington and West Virginia.

Though the new law will be implemented in four days from now, selling and buying transactions among the people allowed to acquire this are excluded. Only retailers can sell, however, it is subject to taxation and will not be in business until at least January of 2018. As of press time, a proposal of 12 percent ttotal tax which covers states sales tax plus 3.75 percent excise tax and 2 percent tax which cities and towns can add is being presented for consideration, Las Vegas Review Journal reported.

Now that marijuana is legalized, it is expected that almost all who can legally possess this would bring them outdoor, possibly influencing the younger ages. An establishment responsible for the right use and possession of marijuana should be established for proper regulation WBUR reported.

Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska, California and Nevada favor marijuana legalization and can now savor it.
