We legalized alcohol .
Crime increased, cancers became linked to it's use, heart disease, fetal alcohol syndrome increased, drunk driving deaths ... The lust goes on and on.
We legalized the sale if cigarettes at one point , to 18 yr olds.
COPD increased , cancers increased, healthcare related costs sky rocketed.....
The big corporations who know and continue to defend their rights on these issues continue to rake in the big bucks while staying immune from lawsuits and the like; at the same time the / our government continues to rake in their fair share of the profits thru taxes.
Legalize Pot and we will be at the mercy of the government, healthcare professionals, and law enforcement.
Bottom line___ how Stupid will the average American become before realizing that just because it's legal or not , doesn't make it right.
