Obama and Congress... Can't you see how easy this is...


Raise taxes by 2% all around
Legalize Cannabis(Marijuana)
Tax Cannabis at 7% sales tax
Require a License to grow Cannabis(Domestic License, and Commercial prices differ)
Require a License to sell Cannabis

Pros:
Paying more taxes into the Gov. means the Gov. is doing less debt-spending, which means borrowing less money on the dollar.

By spending non-borrowed money, effectively...

YOU PAY MORE TAXES FOR MORE MONEY
Why?
Because foreign goods depreciate because YOUR DOLLAR IS WORTH MORE.




Cannabis Pros:
No-longer linked to the 'gateway drug' being as no one in the F*CKING WORLD STARTED SMOKING POT AND SAID, " HMMM THIS IS GOOD, I REALLY LIKE IT. I'LL TRY CRACK NEXT. "
NO, DIDN'T F*CKING HAPPEN.

Cannabis non-sarcastic Pros:
Anti-carcinogen, stress-reliever, pain-receipting blocker, useful for many illnesses but no-longer requires high amounts of jumping through hoops to get DNotes.

Blacks will stop being harassed due to racial profiling of 'random drug checks'

It's no-longer at an officers discretion to look at a group of people in a park that just-so-happen to have tie-die shirts on and funky shorts to 'break it up'






Cons of all this:

We'll need more people to fill all these new jobs for licensing branches- People absolutely hate finding jobs.

Wrong forum. Also, we're not all American despite it being an NA server.

One of the most obvious pros of legalizing marijuana IMO is the fact that people - especially young people - don't have to go to a shady drug dealer to get it. Because guess what, that drug dealer also sells other drugs. The drug dealers are the gateway to harder drugs.

And then there is the hilarious hypocrisy of alchol's legality vs cannabis' illegality. Alcohol is so much worse for your body, and yet...

But seriously, bro. You are expecting logical thinking from government?

The only thing it's gonna hurt is pharmaceutical companies, the only reason it's illegal also.
