"MY FELLOW AMERICANS"

(He Was Just A Simple Man)...He Walked Up To The Podium...Looked Out At An Auditorium Filled With Thousands Of People....Cleared His Throat.......And This Is What He Said...............................................

"Ladies And Gentleman In The Audience......And All Of Our Elected Officials.....And Most Of All...All Of Our Wonderful People In Law Enforcement......This ....... Is For You.......................................................................

How Many Years Has It Been Now...That Taxpayer Money Has Been Used..(Actually...I Should Say.... Wasted On The Enforcement Of The Marijuana Laws?)....Millions.... Perhaps Billions Of Dollars............All Wasted On The Undercover Operations...The Police Raids...The Chases..The Shootouts... And You Name It
And Thats Just On What Ive Mentioned So Far

Never Mind The Cost Of More Taxpayers Money... To House Those Put In Prisons Over These Laws
That... By The Way.....On Average..Cost The Taxpayers 100,000 Dollars A Year
Not Including Medical Care...Dental Care...College Degrees..And What Have You

And Whats The Real Reason Behind All Of This Law Enforcement Of The Marijuana Laws?
MONEY!!!.....The Government Doesnt Like Being Cheated Out Of MONEY!!..It Called........ Taxes

My Fellow Americans...It Must Be Understood.... That The People Will...Forever... Continue To Smoke Pot
So With This In Mind...Why Cant You People Understand... That You Are Not Going To Win This War... That Was Declared By Richard Nixon Back In The 70s
Maybe Those Harsher Drugs You Can Continue On With..But Youll Never Stop The People From Smoking Pot

As Far As Pot Goes?...Youve Been Wasting Our Money.... With Your Undercover Stuff..Your Raids..And The Informants ....And The Car Chases

My Proposal Is.... That You Pass Laws... Making Marijuana Legal

You Can Sell It In The Liquor Stores...Just Like Buying A Pack Of Cigarettes...Think Of All The Taxes Youll Reap!
Think Of All The Millions Of Dollars Youll Save Us Tax Payers...When You Wont Have The Need For Undercover People In Dark Sun Glasses......Concealed In Vans... Loaded With Equipment... That We...The Tax Payers Have To Pay For

Think Of All The Prisons.... That Wont Be Packed To The Gills... With People That Sold Pot To Make A Buck
You Can Save Billions Of Dollars.Of Useless Spending...You Can Stop The Dealers From Selling Marijuana...Just Like That!
And... At The Same Time My Fellow Americans?
You Can Put A Huge Dent In The Murder Rate...From Big Shot Dealers Driving By... And Shooting Down Dead....Someone Who Was Selling Pot... On Their Turf

So.... My Fellow Americans
There it Is...In A Nut Shell
Its The Answer To What Our Politicians Cannot Seem To Understand..It Has Been A Problem... That Has Been Going On...For...At The Least...60 Years Or So........And Would Probably Be.... What The Majority Would Want...And...In Theory..It Could.... And Would Lower Taxes

So..In Closing... My Fellow Americans
What Ive Just Presented To You..Is The Solution Youve Been Searching For All These Years

Do You Want to Save Lives?...Does The United States Government Want To Make A Lot Of Money?
Then..What Ive Just Said To You All...Is The Solution

Thank You

Indeed any country that make's cannabis legal will make a fortune in taxes and create so many jobssmoking

They can regulate the THC levels and have different types of cannabis smoking

Amsterdam has a vast choice of various types cannabis

Booze and tobacco are legal and we know how much damage booze can do, but that evidence has never been produced with regards to cannabis, because it's simply not that bad for you and the TCH levels can be regulated

Why fight against something that people want to do and deny everyone the freedom of choice?

Mr Freedom of Speech, "Why fight against something that people want to do and deny everyone the freedom of choice?" If you look at the USA, specifically Colorado you will see the dramatic increase in crime since the authorization of 'pot'. So, it's more than freedoms, it's about protecting all the others ppl in the wake of this disastrous change in policy. If the narcotic did not affect anyone else but the user, then that's their choice, when it steps outside that criteria then it's a menace to society.

Hello Mr. Namaron

Mr sea, Can you prove cannabis is the reason? Do you facts to back up your claim?

Do you have facts?

Seaworthy, please don't talk out of your a**. I live in Colorado.

Gypsy, Are there a lot of jobs created by the legalisation of cannabis, taxes gained from the sale of cannabis, do unemployment levels go down and poverty reducewink

Crime rate in Colorado increases much faster than rest of the country

"Some Colorado lawmakers, police and legal experts partly blame the marijuana industry, claiming that it has lured transients and criminals to the state."



Tell it to your lawmakers, maybe they're talking out their asses as well.

But did they test these criminals for cannabis use or just pass ignorant judgement professor

Do they really prefer illegal drug dealers on the streets selling not just cannabis, but heroin and cocaine, because it's those types who peddle the harder drugs to kids and turn them into addictsfrustrated

Sea, I read that article. It says at least twice in it that there is no confirmation that pot has caused the increase. I looked at the Colorado state crime website and interestingly enough, over 70% of criminal offenders were male and over 70% of crime victims were also male. So, if pot is the reason for these homicides, then it would follow that fewer than 30% of pot smokers are female.

I don't think the male to female cannabis users ratio is that disparate.

Colorado's economy is thriving. A lot of it is due to the cannabis industry and also due to tourism. If you are a criminal, do you go to a economically depressed area or to a place where there is something to steal?

Why not list all of the economic growth statistics? Or how about the stats that cite Colorado as number one or two in health fitness in the US?

Or how about the stats for tax revenue?
Gypsytramp
I live amongst the potheads. None of them I've seen seem the least bit hostile or violent. We laugh here because if you are driving behind someone and they are going slow, it's likely they are high.

I'd take dealing with a pot head over dealing with an alcoholic or a prescription drug addict or a religious fanatic any hour of any day of the week.
Freedomofspeech9
I can't believe I am admitting this, but I agree with Gypsy and pot heads are harmlesssmoking

Take a tug on that big fat spliff and the world will be at peacesmoking

his biggest problem as an American was Marijuana laws. Not healthcare, not fair wages, not the waging of forever wars for profit, no the national debt, not the educational system, not the plutocracy and blind servitude to the rich of the elected officials. Oh no, he only cares about his pot.

No wonder, they say that marijuana damages brain cells.....cool

Children or teenagers should refrain from smoking pot until their brain is developed...that is what most researchers think...medical marijuana clinics have popped up in Vancouver but it does need to be regulated...however...there are far worse drugs out there...a little potsmoking is nothing in comparison to heroin or fenanyl...they are deadly...not to metion presription opiods...
Never knew anyone robbing a bank or breaking and entering for pot...lol...laugh...
