So youre in favor of private prisons and their shareholders making money hand over fist on the backs of people convicted of minor cannabis related crimes all over a plant that's been used by humans for several thousand years now? A plant that has almost zero negative effects on the user while alcohol is readily available and has serious detrimental effects is abused.
Sorry, burnthat oremise is rather absurd to me. Places like Colorado for example, haven't seen any significant increases in crime yet are reaping the benefits of the taxes accused from their new industry. They've created tons of jobs, a new source of revenue for public works projects, new roads, new train system in Denver with plans to expand. I see far too many benefits to legalizing cannabis and no negatives. What an adult does to relax on their own time as long as it doesn't interfere with others, shouldn't be anybody else's business. And nobody should be in prison over a plant.

Personally I'm against legalization of marijuana. Medical use is OK, but not general public use.

What I find interesting, a poster can litter a reply with run-on sentences and the profligate use of commas...
...just simply murder the English language.
Just a heads up: a space is required after the use of a comma...
