PHOENIX — An Arizona congressman called for the legalization of marijuana in his state on Monday, saying it would cause a drop in crime and provide economic benefits.

Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) is the first congressman to officially support the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, an effort to legalize, tax, and regulate the drug.

“The products will be tested, packaged and labeled, to insure the marijuana is not contaminated, and consumers know what they’re getting,” Gallego said.

Gallego said that, by legalizing marijuana, a dangerous underground market that holds an economic incentive for criminals would be eliminated and Arizona communities would thus be safer.

The ability to tax the drug would also provide a nice economic push.
