if people don't cooperate the big operators never get caught--he shouldn't be treated as harshly as those who wouldn't cooperate

$30 billion per year in tax revenues are lost by NOT legalizing !

$10 billion per year is spent on cops, public defenders, jails, judges, prisons...

$10 billion is lost every year as persons convicted stop paying income taxes, and have to accept lower paying jobs...

SAVE THE FAMILY FARM !! elminate ALL farm subsidies..$20 billion MORE per year in savings.... let em grow marijuana to pay their bills....

So that is $70 billion a year hell multiplied by 10 years thats $700 BILLION... and we are starting to talk about REAL MONEY.

Look at how Amsterdam has their nation setup.

Very interesting. At least there was no prior record. Does crime pay?

Great post!! I'd like to add that history has shown that human nature is such that no matter what religions, governments, armies do they will never stop the following: Prostitution, Drugs, Alcohol, and Gambling. So instead of making these illegal and creating black markets that make criminals rich and the streets unsafe the government needs to legalize all of it and regulate and tax it for the benefit of society!!

True, however I do not agree on legalizeing it.
