I’m not strictly opposed to legalization of marijuana. I just think libertarians and conservatives should stay away from Soros money and push for small measures.

For instance, instead of outright legalization, push for decriminalization. A ticket is a lot better than jail time any day of the week. It should also be pointed out that few people are in prison for drug use or possession alone. There are usually other associated crimes. That said shorter sentences given to those who successfully complete real drug treatment.

I'm assuming you noticed the medical marijuana mess on the west coast. The FEDGov doesn't want to budge on that issue for reasons we can only guess. (wink) If they see it as future revenue, that could change.

I'm thinking this, like many other issues, this needs to go to the states and let them decide what's best.

Unfortunately, we seem to be headed in the other direction.
