An activist group in California, is working towards inluding a popular vote in the next election cycle for the purpose of legalizing marajauna for recreational purposes. The group states that the taxes raised could be used to pay the states massive deficits. Marajuana is still illeagal under federal statutes. Comments on the outcome?
I've got my......................, oh, sorry dude. I got my plane ticket already.
BP If you get out to Cal ya gotta let me know !
Sure you can Hokey, will need a good man in a strange world out there on my own.
If marijuana becomes legal, and taxable, i beleive that it would help the economy. There are alot of people who smoke pot in this country and the gov cant ignore that, just think of all the millions of dollars that it will generate once we tax pot, and the moeny thats being used to regulate this drug could be used to create more jobs, no matter the amount. so i support the legalization of marijuana and hope that if it ever does become legal that we can all join together and live in peace because when the end of the world is near we wont have nothing but eachother so might as well get along and pass the blunt
Even though I don't smoke weed, I have been in favor of it's legalization for a long, long time. I am also a native Californian and can't think of a more profitable way to fix the economy out here...smells kinda nice, too!
It does less harm then alcohol and along with the taxes for my mismanaged state it might cut into some of that drug cartel money too.
I am conservative in most of political views. So what I am about to say may surprise you. I am all for the legalizing of marajauna for recreational purposes. If it becomes legal in Texas I am going to become a farmer.
California is desperate. It has basically run out of options to balance its budget and cannot devise other ways to create fiscal responsibility. Considering the liberal leanings of the Obama administration, it's likely there won't be much backlash from the feds. There are simply too many people in California, particularly SoCal, and the run on its welfare and social services programs has been enormous. The next step, after legalizing marijuana, will be to legalize all the illegals. LA (Villaraigosa) might just do that anyway before Obama gets around to it.
I think marijuana legalization is probably one issue that most Americans support.
Problem is, lots of law enforcement agencies get lots of drug eradication dollars to go after MJ, so there's a vested interest within the government to keep it illegal.

Is there any good reason why marijuana is illegal? The reasons why it was outlawed in the first place is totally ridiculous. Pot does have medical uses -ask anyone going through chemo, nausea, etc. Queen Victoria ate marijuana baked in pastries for mental cramps in the mid 1800's. By legalizing...
