    It was bound to happen.
    This will pass in a heartbeat!


    SACRAMENTO, CA -- Marijuana advocacy groups are using California's budget crisis as a springboard for a new campaign to legalize pot.
    At midnight on July 8, the Marijuana Policy Project began running television ads across the state, pushing for the legalization and taxation of marijuana.

    "Instead of being treated like criminals for using a substance safer than alcohol, we want to pay our fair share," says the middle-aged woman featured in the commercial, who is from Fair Oaks.
    The group estimates the state could shave over $1 billion from its deficit if pot were made legal and taxed.

    ” Obummercare, 20 percent of the time it works everytime.

    Although this a dumb idea, if passed, the state should buy all of the pot from those that grow it or import it setting a price per pound or whatever measurements. Then process it into indiviual packs like cigs. (say 20). Put at 2 dollar tax on each joint. Penalty for any someone selling it illegally would be a hefty fine and jail time. If you want to get shit faced, it gonna cost your more. See how that works for you friggin dopeheads and eco-nuts.

    Taxation is the only argument I can think of against legalization.

    The last thing a government needs is more money.

    It's de facto legal in Detroit. Michigan has a medical marijuana law now, but in Detroit, there are so few cops that people just sit on their porches and smoke it.

    These days, they are not even bothering to cover up crack smoking in some parts of town. All the cops are usually downtown or covering their speed traps.

    I can agree with your last point. I can think of a bunch of reasons against legalization. More usage especially by the young. I was under the impression smoking was bad for you. Our politicians are now going to say that Pot is ok and cigs not ok; that's kinda screwed up. More potheads means more healthcare problems, more addicts and probably more crime. After legalization of pot, what's next? Legalization of coke and H will not be far behind.

    Why not allow it to be legal? Outside of it being bad for your repiratory system and possibly making one high, it's not harmful.
