Think of all the money we could make if we legalized burglary? We could require a license with a fee and then tax all the profits the burglar made.
No one ever gets hurt in most burglaries after all. And there are millions of them a year, we will never be able to get rid of them, rather then imprison all these people we can make them productive members of society.
Yes, because stealing someone's property is the same as smoking a joint in the privacy of your own home.
VERY astute, Gunny!
As long as i can "bear arms" in my own home,
i DO think burglary SHOULD be "legalized."
Want my shit?
Come and get it.
Oh... Sorry. I'm NOT just packing heat,
i've got a couple of surprises, in the way of pistol grip x-bows, too.
NO ONE WILL HEAR YOU DIE.
And if you're some criminal person?
You won't even be missed....
you are comparing apples and oranges.
If we could legalize and tax all forms of home defense, think of all the money that would be raised.
Money that could be put to good use, like in schools and mass transit as well as benefits for illegals.
In fact, that's the solution to all of our problems. We'll legalize everything so we can tax our way to Utopia and Prosperity!
Just think how much money we could make if we fined druggies for fucking up their kids.
Good point. Pot is the "diet coke" of drugs. We already discriminate between legal and illegal recreational drugs with having alochol and tobacco legal. It is just a question of "moving the line"
Some drugs, however should remain illegal, stuff like heroin and meth, and probably coke. They can have far more impact on a persons life than pot and say ecstasy.
The worst thing that happens to pot smokers is usually weight gain due to constant "dude i want white castle" cravings.
I don't really care if they were to legalize marijuana, because I'm not going to smoke it and I'm not going to sit around watching others do it. It's the same with tobacco for me.
But by legalizing marijuana, we set a standard of "moving the line," as you say. Once we move it once, others will want to move it again. We have drawn a line, and once we erase it, it will be hard to keep it intact.
We moved "the line" to make cannibus illegal in the first place.
Moving it back is a good idea.
Total waste of resources policing something so harmless as hemp.
Separate names with a comma.
