Cost vs Benefit scenario- Look at how much money we spend every year locking people up for marijuana related offenses when they have scientifically proven that the stuff isn't nearly as dangerous as Alcohol, which isn't illegal- Regulation is understandable, however, it's way too much of a cost to the country to fight a war on drugs that we are losing. - We're not talking about CRACK or any type of hard psychotropic drugs, we're just talking about Marijuana- You get more messed up if you drink too much robitussin... Get real, stop letting the mainstream media control your minds- do some research into the history and reasons the stuff was made illegal in the first place before making your own judgement.

Another prime example for reduction of the minimum wage.

How stupid can a person be? When someone sells drugs, they divert someone else's principle investment to an undeserving source. IN return, inflation has to be implemented to make up the difference. Not only does the user pay but everyone in your economic surroundings.

The average drug dealer sells $100,000.00 worth of drugs to make $15,000.00 a year. The $85,000.00 that leaves the community creates a very deep hole in the local economy, when there are 250 other people just like him.$850,000.00 gone for a city like Hopewell and you have to wonder about Obama lying? But you can see the city slowly dilapidating and the only thing the drug dealer has is a baby, a raggedy car and a long jail sentence because he doesn't have an idea as to what he did, either.

Wake up, Dee. Entrepeneurs aren't investing in your area, because of the desires of the people in your area to turn their hardwork into a dope man's minimum wage career. Dumbest assholes in the world have to be dope dealers. Spend 18-24 hours to make 2-300 dollars worth of sales, to have to spend 150 to do the same thing tommorow. 150 divided by 24 hours is $6.25 per hour. 150/18=$8.33 per hour.

$50-75 for weed, 10-20 for something to eat, 20-50 for something to drink, don't pay rent; sleeping on somebody's couch or floor and riding on somebody else's gas money. Car broken down on Temple Stretch because they spent more money on looking pretty than on whether the car actually ran.

They got to do something for money though and you have to watch the kids by yourself, because he at his new shorty's girlfriend's mama's house. E DU CA TION.

because there is no real difference between getting high or getting drunk. If you have never tried both then you cannot talk about it.

yes because I think it has medicinal purposes as well, and I think it will bring the crimes down and also lower arrest in the area's in and around the cities connected with Colonial Heights Va.
