CALIFORNIA FOCUS - Legalized pot would be no panacea - Redwood Times

Full story: Redwood Times

There's a sense among a lot of Californians that legalizing marijuana and then taxing it is some sort of panacea that would solve many law enforcement problems, make it safer to smoke pot and also produce a tax bonanza of $1 billion or more per year.

This is a very interesting subject. I wonder how it will all turn out...? Obviously, each faction involved in the marijuana issue is approaching it from the point of view of money money money. Otherwise, why even bother with it. So, who do you suppose is going to win? No matter which way the November election goes, I have a feeling that it won't settle anything. The great Marijuana War will go on like it always has. The longer the war goes on the more money is made by everbody involved. That's the way I see it.

i think it might actually be bad for marijuana smokers if it's legalized because once weed is controlled and sold by the government prices will most likely rise...i beleive even if it's legalized there will still be plenty of people getting it like they have in the past..
