Health Food Industry

Actually, the god honest truth is that marijuana and prostitution was legalized, taxed, and regulated, then it would have a dramatic economic and unemployment impact on the country...would cut down significantly on crime, create cleaner environments for the oldest known profession that wont be going away, and would allow for a massive influx of secondary businesses. would it eliminate the debt and unemployment? no...but it would cause a serious dent in it fairly rapidly.
But...this is one of those bite you in the arse issues...the fed gov would rather explode than go back on a nixon era rash decision.
