pot billionsCheck out this report by the ACLU about the amount of money being spent on marijuana drug busts. The report also claims that there is a strong threat of racism underlying these arrests.

      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.

    All of a sudden the ACLU is into local control of things? Why don’t they go after Eric Holder, who threatened to imprison state officials in Delaware if they enacted that state’s legally approved medical marijuana law?

    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

    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.
    Tax weed and lets move on.
