162. Hey debbierlus, There Is Another Reason As Well...
Years ago, when I was living up on the Mendocino Coast up in Northern California, there was a LTTE in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat from a registered nurse. We were going through the bi-annual (election year) local debates about legalizing\de-criminalizing marijuana, so there were copious amounts of articles in the newspapers, and thousands of LTTEs.

Anywho... this one always stuck with me.

She wrote: " Folks, ya have to know that if you could grow aspirin in your backyard, they'd make aspirin illegal too. If the powers that be can't control it, and make their profits from it, it will be made illegal."

Curious thing is, that by keeping it illegal, it raises the price of an ounce of smokable bud to $400, more than half of what an ounce of Gold goes for.
