Will California legalize recreational MJ?
It is on the ballot in NOV, 2010. Law enforcement & prosecutors are livid about the idea.. How much of the state/county/city are devoted to arrest/prosecuting/jailing the non-violent "drug dealer or drug user". Those corporations that are hired to run the prisons for the state.. must be seeing there profits "going up in smoke"
Should this bill be called the judicial unemployment vote?
Some in law enforcement believes that the whole war on drugs is a waste of resources www.leap.cc
Does anyone see the parallels between the current situation - thousands being killed on the southern US/Mexico border over rival gangs and the "civil war" that we endured for 12-14 years while this country TRIED to enforce the Liquor Prohibition?
Our society is in a state of denial over MJ.. it is literally readily available to just about anyone who looks for it.
It is estimated that this will bring over ONE BILLION to the state's coffer annually.
Instead now, our society is allowing "gangs" to control how much is sold, what the quality of the MJ is, how much it is sold for and WHO IT IS SOLD TO... and when is the last time that you heard of the IRS going after a "gang" for tax evasion?
How much violence - involving "boot-legging liquor- has the country experienced since the 21st amendment was passed?.. and how many BILLIONS/TRILLIONS has been paid in taxes to the Feds/states?
