Marijuana is a plant. It's a creation from God himself. You can find marijuana about anywhere in the world. It grows wild. Some grow it for money making purposes.
Marijuana possession is against the law. In some states though, marijuana is legal to possess if used for medical purposes. Now here's where I get to thinking and wondering about shit. Now I'm no virgin to the semi - party life. Yes my dear friends, I have smoked marijuana. I've never inhaled though. oops. That's my best Bill Clinton impression.
I've been thinking about this alot lately. Why not just go ahead and legalize it all. I'm not saying I'd go back to smoking rope. It had it's day and I'm over it. What I'm saying is that maybe if we legalize it, we can tax it and help with the National Deficit. Think about this for a minute. I might actually make some sense here.
If we legalize it we can charge a HUGE tax on it. Here's my example. A pack of cigarettes cost between $5.00 and $7.00 per pack depending on where you live. The reason of the price difference is because different states charge different amount of tax per pack. There are 20 smokes per pack. Thats on an average of .60cents per smoke. How about we sell a pack of ten joints for $50.00 per pack?
That's $5.00 per joint. The cost of that pack to produce at it's highest might be $1.00 per pack. That's a $49.00 dollar profit. If the government charges 50% tax on that pack they make $24.50 per pack sold. That's straight up money baby!
When people think of people who smoke pot they think of the dudes who came straight out of "Fast Times at Ridgemont High". Not true. I know for a fact of people who smoke that are some serious professionals. Doctors, lawyers, government workers, police officers. The list can go on and on.
We can still make it available for people with medical problems. Infact, I feel that the insurance companies should pay for the medicinal marijuana for some one who needs it. It has to be doctor approved. It should be available. That's my opinion and I hope it comes to fruation in every state in the United States of America.
In these United States of America if your caught and convicted of drunk driving, it will cost you more then a simple traffic ticket fine. It will cost you some jail time. Your fines for this offense are out of this world. Your insurance rates will more then double for atleast 7 years. Your going to have to take driving classes. Your license will be suspended. Long story short.. Your simply put. Fucked!
If we legalize grass, we should implement the same kind of laws that are associated with OWI's. Make the people who smoke it and drive responsible for their actions. In fact, make it a mandatory 1 year in prison at a minimum. If you are caught driving under the influence of weed, you will prosecuted to the full extent. It's damn simple to me.
People are going to smoke weed. It's a simple thing to acknowledge. It's going to happen and there is nothing we can do about it. If you legalize it, there's a great chance that illegal activities with selling it will go down. If by chance someone is caught selling grass illegal, put their asses in the joint for a minimum of 5 years.
We as a government need to sit down and really debate this. The means in the end could be so beneficial that we could as a country start getting out of debt. Look at Amsterdam. Their crime rate is ten fold lower then the U.S.A's. Their debt rate is lower then ours. It's considered one of the happiest places in the world to live! Just sayin.....
Marijuana is plant. It's a plant made by God.....
