See, if you would legalize it and charge a 100%tax, look at all the money the state would have to cover the wages of those who refuse to take a pay cut

Do you really think if it's legalized people are going to pay taxes on it? Granted, there will be people who smoke it that will buy it legally, but most people deal marijuana to make money. You can't make money by paying taxes on it, so they will continue to illegally distribute it. Hence, your argument sucks. Plus, these people were dealing steroids and prescription meds. Having lived in a community where people seem to overdose on scripts every day, these knuckleheads deserve to be in jail and it's too bad their bond wasn't higher.

It was the roids that led to the warrant....

METH IS DEATH POT IS NOT.

The law is wrong not the bong, smack is wack, coke is a joke, this is why we toke, booze and a pill will kill.

Reason they did not give a street value to there bust is because it will show that it cost 500% more then the pot, and what ever else they got would have been worth on the streets. Could have used the cops it took to put this bust togethere, and put them out on speed traps, and over do parking tickets, and would have at least brought in some money

People that are against pot have never tried it. Not only should pot be legal, but everyone locked up for it's sale/possession should be released and the cops that enforce pot laws should be laid off......that's how you BRING IT !!!!!

Um actually your wrong. Given that if marijuana is made legal local drug dealers on the streets would not be able to compete with bug companies price wise because the big companies will have a lower cost of goods sold, so they will be able to sell it at a cheaper price than your local drug dealer. Now it all comes down to would you rather buy weed from some shady guy on a corner or a public established businesses? Besides if you go on line and look at where the state of California gets it s revenue from, you would notice that the the taxation of weed is significant. So if Iowa wants to get these roads fixed they would be smart in a businesses sense to legalize weed.

Well, they could legalize it but then people would be b*tching about all the new laws that were created due to it being legalized. And instead of just texting while driving they'd be smoking a doobie AND texting while driving and then b*tch because the next guy was DRUNK, smoking a doobie and texting while driving and they didn't catch him because they were going after the little guy who was only breaking 2 laws. It's just one big vicious circle.

14th of June 2010"the Hartford Hospital and the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine published the results of another study concerning how driving under the influence of marijuana affects driving skills.The conclusions of the study (already made public by several other organizations across the world, who conducted similar surveys) is that driving while high on weed does not affect skills, reactions and attention.

For some reason I think they need to use a few more test subjects. I've seen people high on that stuff and some of them couldn't even find their mouth to stick the joint in... so yeah... I'm not 100% convinced of the validity of this study.

Increased availability does NOT translate to increased (ab)use. "...28% of Dutch teens smoked marijuana as compared with 41% of American teens, and 23% of American teens had experimented with other illicit drugs as compared with only 6% of European teens."
http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle-old/176/e...
So, actually, legalization translates to LESS abuse.
