Marijuana is by far the largest cash crop here in the USA…worth estimates of 30 billion dollars. That represents billions of potential tax dollars going into our coffers. Add in ,what could this country do with a good chunk of the 10 billion we use to incarcerate marijuana users. Take that money..let’s not leave it on the table of the cartels. Lets it be a regular business, taxed and regulated. That’s some real money, that can be used to straighten social security. Create more green jobs with the green!
Certain opportunity’s require all political parties come together and create ideas and solutions for the future.I’m quite certain if there as forceful, accurate and articulate discussion in place after Obama begins his 2nd term, that these types of sensible and beneficial change can come to be. If you want Republicans to go along with it, just cut them in on the action. Better these funds be recirculated here in America,instead of disappearing in South America or the Cayman islands.
I had a friend who was driving with a small amount of marijuana being smoked in his car. He is a professional guy. He told the cop that he was sorry and wouldn’t happen again. The cop gave him a break.
Ive got another friend, well-educated hardworking guy. He has the luck of living in Arizona and has a Hispanic last name. He got pulled over for allegedly running a stop sign. The cop immediately searched the car as there was a minor odor in the car. He got arrested on the spot. Never broke any other law in his life besides a speeding ticket. Now his divorcing wife is using this to get custody of his two sons. This is just not right. Different justice for different people. This is not America. Let’s come together and fix some thing
Say yes to sensible public policy..
