      yeah I agree I think that's the process the states will start taking eventually over time more and more states will legalize sale and of coarse tax it like they do cigs

              idk why....but I laughed so hard at this lol.
              It would have been even funnier if you said "addicted to The Marijuana" instead.

                lol, well, the social norms of not working under the influence would still be in place, as well as laws prohibiting driving under the influence.
                On that app Mobile Patrol I laugh when I see the arrests for Operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs.....because since they only ticket for small possession now, people are just arrested for actually BEING high instead. ......and people are dumb.....

                edit - I mean in NY anyway, youre ticketed for possession as opposed to charged with a crime.(under a certain weight anyway)

                  because there is way too much money spent on trying to prevent the distribution of it, and that doesn't even scratch the surface of how much tax $ it costs to keep someone incarcerated for extended periods of time.
                  I obviously wouldn't know the hard numbers behind it, but safe to assume it would be significantly cheaper to regulate it if they were going that route.

                  I don't even know if I have a real stance on this issue. I'm mostly pro-legalization if there's income benefits, which appears to be the case in places it's legal.

                    There's no way our government would legalize without trying to profit on it.

                      Bingo. Which is why it remains illegal

                        Actually, I'd argue that's why they'd WANT to.....but hey...what do I know...

                          The social consequences of use are far more devistating than the benefits from taxation....which are friggin minimal.

                          My daughter lives in Colorado and she says the opinions there regarding legalization have changed completely. She said if they had another referendum they would ban it again.
                          Be careful what you ask for......

                            I just don't see any distinction between speculating on what will happen to cartels from legalization to what will happen to "family values," "our country's global standing," or any other big institution in this country. And, just in general, I have no faith in legislation to fix anything of note. Not substantially, at least.

                            I operate from the mafia maxim, "just work on removing the pebble in your shoe," so right now I see no purpose in incarcerating people over petty drug offenses, and accordingly wouldn't mind seeing some reform (despite my lack of faith in its viability). What happens afterwards? Who the hell knows. Decisions like that have ecological effects. I won't sit here an theorize to that effect, because I view it as an exercise in futility.

                            I'd imagine it's entertaining, doe.
                            Im on the fence. Could be good, could be bad. But like you said, rudy started the discussion by insinuating that drug cartels would disappear which I completely disagree with.
                            And please dont try and dispute that Rudes. "Now all the U.S. has to do is legalize it, and no more drug cartels and gang wars"

                              Why would they ban it again? Did she elaborate on why?

                              Apparently 70% of the country doesn't agree with you.
                              What are the devestating social consequences of a harmless plant? Would they be as devestating as alcohol or cigarettes?

                                So everyone's beef is that they do not believe drug cartels and hustlers would suffer greatly if Americans were able to produce their own marijuana?
                                I don't see how that doesn't make sense, but you're entitled to your opinion.
