    This is so obvious. Just like gambling, once the politicians can not find a way to feed the constant overspending, all morals and ethics go out the window. I personally have no issue with anyone smoking anything they want, but do find the fact that politicians prey on society's weakest, morally repugnant.

    There is absolutely no chance that the average grower will submit to taxation. The cannabis clubs will quickly go out of business and it will be totally black market again. Pot is a cash business, grows freely. Wild and Free, like we outta be!

    I feel pretty sure prescription drug companies' lobbyists will nip this idea in the BUD.
