  5. Government stands to lose a lot of revenue cannabis is legalized unless they find a workable way of imposing taxes on its sale, distribution and consupmtion. There is just too much money to be made charging and convicting people for the posession of a herb.

    • i agree with you 100%, some even rejoice and let their backward thinking cloud their minds of the potential financial impact of decriminalisation. this is where the government and their the senior people who get paid nicely have failed us to think innovatively and turn something we are spending millions every year to eradicate into a net positive for our economy.... lets be smart instead of clinging to a failed and 1970s policy

  7. I really think the police should channel their resources in other areas than marijuana.
    This is getting played now.
