OK, that's another $20 billion per year to add to your list of savings.Consolidation of overlapping government agencies could save taxpayers 200 billion in ten years which is 20 billion a year.Government overlap costs taxpayers billions, GAO reports

This would save some money from not having to incarcerate pot heads and pot dealers or the enforcement of laws against pot.
