Re: Getting high
The problem with making it legal is that a lot of people will lose their jobs. A lot of pharmaceutical companies would be fucked because weed works a lot better with none of the side effects that a lot of pills have. Then there are the FDA agents who would lose a lot of their jobs. And then what do you do with all the people in prison for weed? Keep them in there? It opens up a massive can of worms. But if the government just taxed it they good make a shit load of money and there is no reason not to. The main argument is that kids will get it but so fucking what? Kids still get booze and it's illegal for them to do so and booze fucks you up waaaaay worse than weed does. It's about money. Nothing more, nothing less.
Canada is far more lenient than the States is about weed, of which I am thankful.
