That's what happens when the government prohibits something, it turns regular people into "criminals"

Maybe it is the connection of how it was banned, couldn't stop production, so legalized and taxed. Now it's legal and acceptable.

The nature of a newspaper is not to just bring hard hitting headlines. It it to bring as much information to as many people as possible. If you just want big, juicy headlines turn on CNN Headline News.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF SHOWING THIS TO ALL OUR CHILDREN TO LET THEM KNOW THAT THERE WERE ALCOHOLICS BACK IN THE DAY?

I THINK THIS WILL HAVE A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON OUR YOUNG PEOPLE.

OUR YOUNG PEOPLE ARE ALREADY OVERDOSING ON DRUGS AND ALCOHOL AS IT IS.

Beth, people ARE being killed from drug deals gone bad. But weed is not killing them. People are being killed in the drug trade BECAUSE it is illegal and forced into the black market. If we re-legalized (that's right, RE-legalized...weed wasn't always illegal) weed (and other drugs), it would be available at the corner drugstore and would be tremendously cheaper. There wouldn't be any more "drug deals gone bad" because we wouldn't need black market drug dealers anymore than we need black market alcohol or cigarette dealers now.
As for weed being psychotropic (not psychic), alcohol has psychotropic effects as well and we saw how well alcohol prohibition turned out, why can't we see that the "war on drugs" (drug prohibition) is doing the same thing?

You may want to do a bit of reading about prohibition. It was a very big deal and responsible for many social and legal changes in this country.

Maybe they should let Scott Syverson - the principal, help display these. Sinces he's out of a job and this is his offical line of work, maybe he can be an euntrapanuer with his 25k and start up his own still.
