    That's going to be awesome.

    BTW, how many millions of dollars in the rears are the legal pot sellers in California?
    As far as I know, they are making plenty of money. And if it were fully legal and taxed they'd see increased tax revenue in the millions, along with saving money in the millions. The whole nation it'd also be in the billions.

    I don't think it is. The black market cigarette industry is larger than the illegal drug industry.

    Illegal cigarette traffickers are dodging billions in taxes and we have deployed as much--if not more--law enforcement to combat them.

    Legalizing pot isn't going to some kind of economic miracle.

    But it sure wouldn't ****ing hurt... By the way while we're on the subject, do you have any credible evidence that the government devotes more resources to tackling illegal cigarettes then narcotics...

    I have no problem with making pot legal.However will pot heads stop acting like it means anything? you dont suddenly come up with all these brilliant ideas when your stoned.No more 40 year old comedians boasting about smoking it, greeted with a cheer from morons.

    Anyone that thinks that there's no illegal drug, nor alcohol trade, is living in a fantasy.
