    Then i advise you not read your posts pertaining in any way, to cannabis.

    I can wave too. Did you finally come to terms that legalization would decrease the number of illegal drug dealers peddling product at 50x the cost? Ill wait...
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I see you are moving beyond nonsensical to absurd.

    I see you are living in denial. Glad you like government intervention.

    The notion that legalizing Pot will suddenly decrease the number of illegal drug dealers and significantly increase tax revenue is quite amusing.

    But I don't like feeding troll like behavior like yours and others so I will let have your fun.

    You have yet to set forth a valid argument that facilitates your position. If you cannot do so, i'll be forced to take it as your failure.

    Why even show your face in the thread if all you are trying to do is forgo debate in favor of pointless comments?

    Wait the bold says it all

    I am not the one making the specious assertions; I have yet to see you set forth a valid argument suggesting it will reduce the illegal drug trade or increase State Revenue.

    Basically what we have here is a lot of emotional babble, speculation and conjecture.

    I on the other hand can show you nations that have experimented with the legalization of drugs and have since rescinded them because their notions about legalization, much like yours, were false and naive.

    Can you show me nations that have legalized Pot and are now reaping the benefits of it? I didn't think so; all you have is speculation, hyperbole and conjecture.

    Carry on.

    First and foremost, the Netherlands is very successful. Secondly, i am absolutely correct being that i have first hand knowledge about marijuana and people who sell it. Lastly, i did put forth a valid, sound, and logical economic argument as to why legalization reduces illicit drug sales.

    If drugs are legalized, more specifically cannabis, then what do you believe would happen to the price?

    Also, please refrain from answering me with the exact same words i used, in which you replied to...

    Exactly. Discussion of other countries has been deemed irrelevant:

You cannot ask me to address the varied and unique legal circumstances of numerous countries in a comprehensive manner; each must be addressed separately within the appropriate context.
    I suspect because the problems encountered in those countries become problematical for some posters.

    I never understood why it's illegal when the most-abused drug is legal: alcohol.
