Just think of all the tax dollars that could be made by the govt selling the stuff rather than the Cartels? FYI I only use alcohol & nicotine.

The Govt can't sell it, if they did nobody would buy it anymore.Therefore the tax on gas and beer would go up again.

Legalize it, regulate it, tax it. String up anyone who gives it to someone under 18 years old. Let's move on, shift the funds being wasted on interdiction of a harmless substance to REAL interdiction of the REALLY dangerous things. Don't think I would have a real problem with coca leaves or opium poppies being legal, either, but I'd settle for pot legalization.

You can walk into a liquor store right now and walk out with enough ethanol to kill a city bus full of people. Hpwever, we can't be trusted, as a society, with a substance that won't kill you if you tried.

Lot of strong feeligns out there, I know, but watching the Constitution shredded by overzealous law enforcement and prosecutors, watching gangs get rich, and watching scotch-guzzling hypocrites sneering down their noses at people who want to smoke pot recreationally makes me more than slightly nauseous.

I fail to see the true threat to Western Civilization that legalization of marijuana represents.

Yeah,... That's just brilliant!! Let's decriminalise another blight on society, that will really help us.

Our mental hospitals are in need of more patients. Not to mention vehicular accidents , lost time in the workplace and general antisocial behaviour.

Shall I show you the effects of crack cocaine? How about PCP, LSD, or heroin?

I promise you, getting high is NOT what the DEA needs to focus their efforts on.

Enlighten me then. What about Crack? What about Meth, What about heroin? What about PCP? LSD? Schedule and Legend pharmachuticals illegally and fraudantly obtained.

For the most part Drug Enforcement Administration does not deal with street dome bag/rock hustlers.

So what are you endeavoring to prove by the above.

That the money spent by the federal government on marijuana (which trickles down to the state and local governments) would be put to better use fighting those street hustlers.
