When people argue in favor of marijuana legalization, they often talk about the medical benefits of cannabis. Or perhaps they’ll talk about how it can help raise revenues for local governments. Or maybe they talk about how it can help solve social justice issues. And all of those things are true and good arguments. But you can also make a case that legalizing marijuana can help the environment.
Hemp Helps Soil
Hemp is one of the best crops for farmers to grow from an environmental point-of-view. Hemp grows quickly and helps remove toxins from the soil as it does so. And then once it finishes growing, it breaks down and fills the soil with nutrients. That means whatever you grow in the soil after hemp will grow even better thanks to hemp. And legalizing marijuana would help make hemp farming even more popular.
