Speaking of anecdotes. LOL The 'pot' business is all sorts of things- in three states it is both big business and small business- why do you think that they are all 'disgusting vermin'? Do you think that everyone who works at Coors is disgusting vermin also? As for the rest- i know people who belong to pot co-ops, where their members own a ranch and they grow their own. A friend of mine's son is working on a pot farm owned by locals in Southern Oregon. Down the street from me is a medical marijuana shop owned by locals who legally bought out the previous smaller local medical marijuana shop. And then of course there must be big time pot dealers- somewhere. But I don't know of any personally. Frankly, all of your replies are just your personal objection to pot- you have yet to present a rational, fact based opposition to the legalization of pot. We have three states that have legalized personal pot use- the sky has not fallen. Canada will legalize pot- and the sky will not fall. Portugal has decriminalized all drugs- and their drug related problems have plummeted. The Prohibition failed- Prohibition killed people and enriched criminals. Marijuana prohibition has done the same thing. Why would anyone want a law that results in more people dying and more criminals getting rich?
