...And who did these guys harm? How many of our tax dollars were spent investigating and arresting these non-violent "criminals"? How many tax dollars will be spent to send them to trial and put them in jail? I have a hard time believing that we're better off locking up non-violent criminals. Don't buy into the hype.. We don't do anyone any good by wasting our tax dollars on pot raids.

"Enforcing marijuana prohibition costs taxpayers an estimated $10 billion annually and results in the arrest of more than 829,000 individuals per year -- far more than the total number of arrestees for all violent crimes combined, including murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault."

PS, Why would someone from FL care what we do in Oregon anyway?

I care because I plan to live and retire there. It's clear by your comment that your more than likely a user of the drug, I honestly don't believe that anyone who would defend their stance would not be using. It's not a waste of tax money to defend our children from the lifestyle and effects that this drug inflicts on civilized society. You need to wake up and smell the coffee Jean, grow up you sound like some screwy teenager,... most people in Oregon don't think like you. Get a life and move on.
