Yes, having a higher value dollar makes imports somewhat cheaper, but it also makes our exports a whole lot more expensive (there is a reason China is deliberately devaluing its currency). This can hurt the economy.

Also, I wouldn't mind a 2% tax increase across the board, provided it truly was across the board, since almost 50% of Americans don't pay any income tax. It is hard to care about how much the govt is spending it you aren't paying for it. Also, this needs to be accompanied by spending cuts, because 2% isn't going to do jack **** on its own.

-This will lead to less people graduating and less people working, off setting (by A LOT) any possible income from taxing marijuana. It will actually add to the deficit, not reduce the deficit.

- Long-term studies of high school students and their patterns of drug use show that very few young people use other illegal drugs without first trying marijuana. For example, the risk of using cocaine is much greater for those who have tried marijuana than for those who have never tried it. Using marijuana puts children and teens in contact with people who are users of other drugs. So there is more of a risk that a marijuana user will be exposed to and urged to try more drugs.

-There have been over 7,000 published scientific and medical studies documenting the damage that marijuana poses. Not one study has shown marijuana to be safe.

Marijuana is the most used illegal drug in the United States . Nearly 69 million Americans over the age of 12 have tried marijuana at least once.
Today's marijuana is 10 to 15 times stronger than it was in the 60's.
Reaction time for motor skills, such as driving is reduced by 41% after smoking 1 joint and is reduced 63% after smoking 2 joints.
Data has shown that people high on marijuana show the same lack of coordination on standard "drunk driver" tests as do people who have had to much to drink.
The daily use of 1 to 3 marijuana joints can produce the same lung damage and potential cancer risk as smoking five times as many cigarettes.
Marijuana is the second most common drug, after alcohol, present in the blood stream of non-fatally and fatally injured persons.
Marijuana is a complex material containing 421 chemicals, 60 of which are only found in marijuana.

Most of you teenagers who want your drugs so bad will have some excuse or other way to rationalize every point I have posted here. Bottom line, no matter how you try to rationalize it, marijuana will negatively affect your family relationships, your academics, your mood, your desire to work, your recreational activities, and more.

Recreational use by responsible adult is not the issue here. We are talking about the effects on teenagers and the irreversible effects it has on their future.
B) As far as what you think you know

Speculation is cool and all. You won't find anything about some guy getting high on pot and causing anything like that however. The vast majority of the anti marijuana stuff comes from the pharmaceutical companies that don't want weed legalized anyway. Look for accident statistics over the last few years, etc etc

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?
those shady drug dealers also have started lacing their pot with opiates to get you addicted, I hope to god you know your dealer

You people fail to realize those studies were predominately done by companies fully opposed to the competition marijuana would give them, both plastic companies and drug companies.
