Can anyone tell me exactly why marijuana is still illegal? I mean, we could really use that tax revenue and (here's a little secret) the people who want to smoke pot are smoking it anyway. I also don't think putting marijuana people (smokers, growers, sellers, etc.) in jail is a good use of my tax dollars.
To all those people who think marijuana is the gateway to crack and heroine and the rest of it? It's not. Don't be dumb. I don't care much for marijuana and I don't use it, but I know enough about it to say that it's not nearly as dangerous as alcohol. People who smoke pot just want to eat nacho cheese Doritos and HoHos. Sometimes they like to screw as well. Who cares?
Maybe now that the U S of A is going broke, people will start thinking outside of the box on this sort of thing. Why lookie here! Seems the good folks of Oakland, CA are already ahead of me on this one.
