In light of the elections in the US, politicians have painted conflicting tapestries with their individual views and vision on the war on drugs, and 'The Economics of Not Legalizing Marijuana' Infographic is revealing.

There has been enough debate about the legalization of marijuana, with a constant tug of war on issues like safety, abuse and regulation. In the contemporary world of today, much ground has been broken on the political stage, and so the infographic presented puts in its two cents in showing the financial ramifications of legalizing marijuana.

Choosing to leave the discussion on health aspects of smoking marijuana to others, the infographic explores the logic behind the drug ban within the scope of lost revenue by the U.S. government, accumulated regulation and associated judicial costs and the potential for economic growth.
