Should this issue ever come to a general election vote. I would find a overwhelming vote of confidence for its legalization. Butfor right now the individual states are going to have to do the heavy lifting. I support the states that have dealt with the issue on a intelligent basis. Colo. Has more then helped its financial base for the state. Other states have also.

What the true impact if adopted nation wide. Is we would cut out Billions of Illegal dollars leaving this country, going to the Mexican cartels. You would never comprehend the amount of damage moving that US cash out of this country does. Lets just say it is very, very serious. And something the USSS needs to impart to the Congress.

I am probably one of the only few. Police Commanders that takes this stand. I do so for a myriad of reasons. From a Dept. Of Corrections issue. TO clogged court dockets. To Officers field time. The list is endless. We need to make the drug legal. And work within a structure of control. That way everyone wins. And not just the bad guy.

Just a thought.

I am hearing rumors that even Southern States are looking at the medical marijuana.This from a group that would have said that Reefer Madness was true at least to get reelected. Now I think that group is seeing $$$$ signs and have decided it is OK. On the books treat it as alcohol is treated. When it comes to underage don't destroy their lives because they have a joint on them.

The main proof marijuana is no big deal is most college kids are exposed to it directly or know friends that used marijuana. Most of them became productive members of society.
