Those in your government dont care whether there is more pot or not. There priorities are first raising revenue by taxing pot smokers and second reducing the number of non-violent offenders in their jails.
Not a pot smoker myself but I can understand the point. Jailing pot smokers makes little sense unless they are driving under the influence.
But somebody that wants to sit at home listening to Pink Floyd while eating pizza and smoking pot does not present a danger to the public worthy of imprisonment.
If they can reduce taxation on booze by taxing pot and keep more violent criminals in jail longer by not sending pot smokers to jail they got my vote.
I don't want to pay for this.
The war on drugs has been a dismal failure by any measure.
People are smoking it now - better to have the money for it come to the state coffers than to drug cartels in Mexico where it funds violence.
And finally it's a stand up vote for states rights.
