Legalizing marijuana is a very, very bad idea for many reasons.
Least of which would be the drug war between the American growers and the Mexican drug lords as they fight for control of the marijuana trade in the United States.

Legalize marijuana and you'll instantly bring all the Mexican drug violence into the United States.
Proof that your business accumen is every bit as sharp as your political accumen.

How do you link to logic and common sense?

Do you think the Mexican drug lords are going to let marijuana be legally grown in the United States without wanting a piece of the action for themselves?

Do you think they'll just kiss all those billions of dollars goodbye?

Hell no! They'll literally invade this country and forcibly take control of the marijuana trade. They'll engulf this country in a full scale drug war that will kill thousands of innocent Americans.

Just so a few selfish American potheads can get high. Potheads refuse to see the damage to people's lives that marijuana does. Nobody smokes pot in a vacuum. It all affects other people, directly and indirectly.

You forgot that marijuana contributes to rock and roll music, obscene dancing and interracial dating.

Study on Pot by the Bob Marley Institute finds...

It's a drug and needs to remain illegal so morons don't kill a fat one and drive down a small street with little kids flying over their hoods

Yeah OK dude.

You are a clear example of the stupidity surrounding this topic. Do some fing research.

Mexican drug cartels invading the USA over weed???? Wow.

The Mexican cartels would see no profit from us anymore and invading us is certainly not going to help the cause. They would shift their focus to a country where it's still illegal and profit there.

The Mexican drug cartels would just try to take over the doritos industry and run Frito lay out of business.

Assassinate the CEOs of keebler, Frito lay, hostess, kraft, hahahaha

If they were smart they would just open a legitimate snack business in America

No they wouldn't.

They're not going to let billions of dollars just walk away without a fight.

As soon as marijuana is legalized in the United States, they'll move in
to control it.

You potheads are a perfect example of how marijuana affects people's brains.
Mexican drug cartels are already operating in this country, right under your noses and you don't even know it.

There won't be billions of dollars anymore you brainwashed fool!!! That's the point!!!

Weed would cost as much as cigarettes. It wouldn't be profitable for them.

Alcohol prohibition is a perfect example. No more illegal=no more moonshiners and booze runners and speak easys and Capone type of ****.

Go to the fing store and buy your 6 pack of beer and joints.

Yep, this is exactly what happened with the alcohol cartels (aka bootleggers) after alcohol was legalized. The alcohol cartels are more powerful than ever. There's not a day that goes by there isn't some story in the news about gang violence involving alcohol dealing. My alcohol dealer got killed just last week. That's the second in a month. We need to make alcohol illegal to get these cartels out of the country.

I don't know if you've had a change in meds or what but I'm back to my earlier conclusion that you suffer from some sort of mental handicap or brain damage.

Hopefully they can get your meds worked out and you get your favorite flavor jello today at the home.

I have never ever smoked or knowingly ingested any form of cannabis or its by products knowingly, or to my knowledge, by accident.

I've also never ever tried any form of illegal narcotic, and outside of antibiotics and MAYBE 1 advil in the past 5 years, I dont think I've taken any other medicines, and I don't take prescribed drugs unless not taking them would make me dead, very ill, or end up posting like you.

If suddenly the world found 200 billion barrels of crude oil on every continent, or found a way to harness the sun's energy, do you think the arabs would invade us?

Legalizing weed on a wide scale will cause both demand and supply to increase. The price might stay the same, increase or fall, but in the long run its going to normalize way below the $1200/lb or kilo where it is today.

It is obvious you have not given much, or any critical analysis to this issue.

He's from Texas, remember they have churches that hold 50,000 people and worship dudes like Joel osteen and pat Robertson. I shouldn't have to say anymore. Haha

Go ahead secede, form your own retard republic, announce war on the cartels, and have your own little Alamo 2013. We'll help you pack then we'll light one up and watch.

Well hot damn. We can make money on this. That is a wise move to found a booming industry.
