Re: “Scott Administration Opposes Vermont Marijuana Legalization Bill

We'd all be better off if the police would focus on crimes with actual victims.

Re: “Legal Pot in Massachusetts Could Spark Legislative Action in Vermont

Regarding cannabis legalization, All the Prohibitionists said "Let's wait and see what happens in Colorado ". Well, we've waited and we've seen. The only "adverse" effect is that real estate price are becoming unaffordable. Violent crime, DUI deaths and teen use all went down, just the opposite of what the Prohibitionists predicted, with certainty

A majority of Colorado voters say legal cannabis has had a positive impact on the state and its economy and they would not support a repeal of Amendment 64 if it were on the ballot this year, according to a new poll commissioned by the pro-legalization Marijuana Policy Project and conducted by Democratic firm Public Policy Polling.

Re: “Bid for Marijuana Legalization Referendum Fails in Senate

We'd all be better off if the police would focus on crimes that have actual victims.

Does anyone, other than those who pad their pockets from prohibition honestly believe that wasting $20 Billion and arresting 3/4 Million Americans annually for choosing a substance scientifically proven to be safer than what the govt allows, is a sound policy?
