I think yes. I'm not much concerned about the occasional pot smoker. I am concerned about the chronic pot smoker sitting on his ass collecting welfare while me and mine pay for it. I also am not much in favor of giving the state more tax revenue to dole out and that is inevitable. That horse is out of the barn. From decriminalization to taxation is a certainty. More government intervention in the affairs of it's citizens. More votes bought. Another protected class. Maybe I'm wrong but I doubt it.

Libertarian ideals can only work in a libertarian state. The hybrid of libertarian drug use with government taxation/regulation is a bastard child that will never do anybody any good.

9/10 potheads are deadbeats. Of all the people I know that smoke it frequently, only 2 hold a job.

So let's keep arresting them and use your tax dollars for police, public defenders, court time, rehab and/or jail time. You can add pension, salary and health care costs for the public officials involved.

So violent SWAT raids, asset seizure and dog killings are not govt. intervention into the affairs of its citizens?
