Gatewood Galbreith on legalizing Marijuana and industrial hemp.
Advertisements [?]

State should be among first to legalize, tax marijuana, hemp

Let me beat this drum more loudly than ever before. Events have already taken place that can be utilized to Kentucky's everlasting benefit including reducing poverty and physical suffering, crime, jail populations, taxation of wage earners, medical and health-care costs and hard-drug overdoses.

The answer is to immediately tax and regulate marijuana and hemp as cash crops.

President Barack Obama appeared with his attorney general and the head of the Drug Enforcement Administration and announced a new policy that no federal dollar will hereafter be spent "circumventing a state law." Period. He turned it over to the states.

Gatewood is a good guy, very Libertarian, but to the left of the Libertarian scale. He's friends with Willie Nelson and Woody Harrelson. He was one of the first person's I met when I moved to Lexington Ky.
