The problem with legalizing pot in this country.
You don't hate anything when stoned.
On edit: It (hate) seems to be the basis of a certain contingency in America today. They depend on it to continue the flow of money into their coffers.

8. The snack food industry owes a great deal to pot.
I'm not a charts and graphs guy, but I bet you could draw a correlation to growth in the snack food industry and the growth of pot use. Just another way that it's good for the business and the country.

5. Pot will be legalized when you can't make a dime from growing it, only a small group will profit.
It should be legal, every god damned person on the planet should be able to grow their own and if you want to sell it and can find a willing buyer you should be able to sell every god damned leaf and bud of it you can cultivate. The only reason you can't do that now is that big money has not found a way to restrict the enormous profits that will come from legalization to themselves. The Government has not right to restrict or tax or have any other god damned thing to do with pot cultivation any more than they do with old women growing roses.

11. Yes, like big farming taxes my vegetable garden.
The worst is big marinara! Their agents come to my little acre and count my tomato plants.
That's how the decriminalization forces win this. Cannibis grows anywhere. Seeds are... ahem... plentiful. Once the dam is broken, no regulation could stop it.
The only question is whether it could be ruled as an invasive species. No corn. No wheat. No soybeans. Just Cannibis. (Just kidding -- at least it's edible, and you can make fuel out of it as well.)
