#5 - Legalize it and tax it.
Why stop with marijuana and cocaine? Might as well add meth, and heroin too. If were going to mess up our children this will be the way to do it. Get them all addicted then keep jacking up the taxes.
Look at cigarettes as an example.
If it’s your child who cares, If it’s my - child no way. I think that’s how Obama looks at the problem.
The War on Drugs has done more to erode liberty in this country in the last 25 years than any other single issue.
Nothing would be better than to legalize/decriminalize ALL drugs. Find ways to regulate distribution/sale of the hardest ones.
But the criminalization of marijuana is a joke. Even the late great Buckley advocated legalization of it. It’s simply not harmful enough to justify any regulation stronger than cigarettes (less so, really.)
