    Yeah, with all of the alcohol rated problems we have out there let's legalize marijuana... That may pay for the stimulus but then we will need another stimulus to pay for all of the marijuana problems....no thanks.

    Timber and Alcohol companies are the #1 group of people who pay for the anti-Marijuana ads.

    Why? Hemp and Marijuana would destroy their business along with a great portion of the medicine business.

    Marijuana use to be illegal due to racist reasons (it was the drug that supposedly made a black man look at a white woman twice and look a white man in the eye) but now it's due to greed.

    States like California would save/gain $2 billion a year by legalizing Pot. $1 billion in stopping to pay to try and stop it; $1 billion at least in taxing it.

    I suggest they raise all existing taxes accordingly so that they can pay off the stimulus. Then we'll see how many people really think it's a good idea.

    Yeah brilliant idea. Let's encourage drug use to pay our bills. There isnt anything at all flawed in that idea....[/sarcasm]
