    It's just fucking ridiculous. I don't even understand what the end game is at this point.

    Make the plant legal, its value will drop, and reclaim all that money being wasted on this overpriced weed.

    Do you have any idea how much money goes into the war on drugs? Billions every year goes to local police, FBI, DEA, and so on. Then you get even more billions for the courts. And more billions for the prisons. Not to mention the billions to private companies that work with law enforcements. Millions in legal fees. The war on drugs is an entire multi-national industry.

    Stop paying taxes on it, then lower the cost. Thats all I got.

    Not to mention the drop in revenue the Mexican cartels would experience, lessening their power. I say this in every drug legalization thread, but we need to look at Portugal's drug laws.

    The end game is not having to admit that less government is the solution to a problem (and that, in fact, big government caused -- or even invented -- the problem in the first place).

    A one world government.

    But first they want to make so many laws that no man, woman, or child, can go a day without breaking a law that they didn't know existed. And if you do something to get on a politician or bureaucrats bad side, they can lock you up or fine you for breaking a law that has no victim and is selectively enforced. Obama shut down a bunch legal dispensaries in Colorado because they were within 1000 feet of the precious schools. I want a few kid free states so these assholes can't use the children as an excuse to push their nonsense.

    And the billions government makes to bring the drugs in and sell them on the black market. If drugs were legal they would be cheaper but making them illegal, drives up the price. Then you have the crime that the drug war creates and crime creates fear and people in fear demand more government and less liberty in the name of safety.

    Production of Opium in Afghanistan has gone up every year since the US has been in Afghanistan.

    Leahy is putting some more pressure on that fuck Holder. That ****** has had over 6 months to come up with how the feds will proceed in light of new state laws. He better not dick around with the states like he has in the past. Petition at your discretion.
