Marijuana riches

Who is kidding whom? Marijuana consumption has been around for decades, more likely centuries.

Smoking it is far less debilitating than consuming alcohol, which we all know is legal and has caused many more automobile accidents and other mishaps than smoking pot. Legalization would control who buys and sells it, not to mention added tax dollars on a local, state and federal level the same as buying alcohol or cigarettes.

The only people getting rich are the people who are selling and buying illegally.

The only people who are benefiting from keeping it illegal are virtually criminals as it was during Prohibition.

Wake up, America. Marijuana is not a “hard drug” like heroin or cocaine.
