What a concept eh? What an absurd argument and of course, a typical Liberal appeal to emotions rather than well thought out philosophical arguments.
Your argument is about as trite as Rodney when he pleaded “wha wha why ca ca can’t we all just ge ge get along.”
Are you really this gullible? I mean REALLY?
I expect it from the Liberal media, but from people who are supposedly informed on this forum?
Oh my, carry on.
Like I stated earlier, the thread premise was Marijuana help rescue California's economy.
I have yet to see a reasoned coherent argument that would suggest it will and instead the thread is blathered by the typical nonsense one would see in the legalize drugs threads.
I hope California keeps pushing this, Americans need something to relax after being so openly ****ed in the ass by wallstreet.

Local independent producers also distribute Mexico-produced marijuana, often using it as filler for their product. Mexican criminal groups--the primary transporters of Mexico-produced marijuana into Kentucky--usually sell wholesale quantities to local independent Caucasian dealers, who are the dominant retail distributors of Mexico-produced marijuana. Local independent Caucasian dealers also are the dominant retail distributors of locally produced marijuana. Retail marijuana sales usually occur in private residences, bars, and restaurants in the state.National Drug Intelligence CenterThe production of marijuana is increasingly associated with violence. Growers in Kentucky are known to protect themselves and their crops with firearms, explosives, and booby traps, posing a greater threat to law enforcement and the public. Marijuana growers operating on federal land in Kentucky have verbally and physically assaulted visitors to national forests. The U.S. Forest Service advises that booby-trapped cannabis cultivation sites may endanger visitors. The use of weapons and explosives has resulted in a rise in related crimes such as assaults, illegal possession of firearms, and murders. The number of weapons seized during cannabis eradication program operations nationwide has more than doubled over the past decade.
In other words... we'll be handing over Kentucky's number one cash crop to a group of law-breakers with current ties to Mexican drug cartels.
Sounds like a great plan.
I am for the legalization of marijuana. My own personal belief is that it would be a viable cash crop for farmers, legitimate jobs created, and tax revenue collected.
I do not think that legalizing it will solve California's economy. My grandfather taught me as a kid, how to be thrifty without being a cheapskate.
He would always say, "If you can't budget $5.00, you can't budget $5,000,000".
No matter how much money you give the crooks in office, they'll find a way to squander it.
Pain can be such a beautiful thing
And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?
I am always amused when people hate monger Wall Street yet don't care when their Governments rape them constantly.
But then, when you become a ward of the state and dependent on suckling at the government teat, you have to have a villain to blame right?
