on the bright side jimmie, at least americans will have better access to cheaper drugs - from afghanistan!

If everyone would smoke Marijuana the World would be at peace. Only the uninformed have something to say about the WEED. Look at things now and try something different to booze , heroin,cocaine,etc.

Peace be with you, and all other drugs be illegal.
