legalize it, don't cut the DEA Police Dept. budget. No one loses their job and continue your war on drugs with heroin, cocaine etc.

Is anyone even seeing that the 3+ trillion dollars go to paying law enforcement, people that manufacture the surveillance, safety, and other types of equipment used in drug busts? Are they really fucking trying to sell me lazy pothead workers instead of everything involved in the machine of the "war on drugs"? Propaganda pure and simple. Personally I think it should be legal, but if they're trying to say that we are wasting money that could be spent elsewhere they're crazy. Please tell that to every dea employee, the thousands of manufacturing jobs, and the owners of those companies. Lazy fucking potheads

What if the citizens vote to change the laws but the fed government won't allow it? Isn't that tyranny? You must be a liberal.
