19. Money Talks To
the tune of More than $1 Trillion bucks since Nixon-Every 37 Seconds a Cannabis Consumer is arrested-I'm real tired of my tax dollars being invested in such trivial matters.

I mean, just think about it: You get stopped-cop smells cannabis-calls in back-up, dogs etc. This all takes time$$$. Maybe Hazard pay, OT etc.

Now, as the cops are tearing your car apart, looking under the seats, questioning you etc: HOW MANY DRUNK DRIVERS DRIVE BY, UNDETECTED and potentially on their way to cause a deadly collision?

But By God--they Saved Society from 3/4 of an oz of "The Herb-Cannabis"! Shit!!! We're all Saved as we make plans to attend the Funerals of the family that were killed in that car crash caused later that day by that "drunk driver". I'm sure their friends and family are Willing to make that worthwhile sacrifice---because, after-all: we got us a Very Dangerous "smot-poker"!

I want My Tax Dollars to Work for Society, Not tear it apart over Greed$$.

If Cannabis Prohibition were Ended in the US, the Demand would Drop, The Price would Plummet, Crime would Fall, Jail Beds would Empty and the Boarder Wars over drugs just got less complicated because over 60% of that income Is From Cannabis!!!
