As I said earlier, the majority of people who don't want it made legal are drug dealers as they are the ones who would lose out.



State Govt (Colorado & California) already make money off the taxes from medical marijuana. Millions in fact.

if it is legalized there will be a big craze of smoking it for a few years, then people will realise its just as disgusting as cigarettes, or even binge drinking.
Look how long the hype around 24hr alcohol licenses lasted. People are not drinking for all 24hrs, they still go out in evening for a few hours spend all the money in their wallet then stumble back home possibly via a greasy kebab shop. (this also eased the pressure on police, so they can be present at different clubs at their different closing times)

With Less time policing general weed smoking they could worry more about underage smoking/drinking.

Yes they will. Look the video from me on previous page. The guy explains it perfectly.
Especially for America it would be financially a huge benefit since your war on drugs is huge
and it costs Alot of money. If you legalise it, the money for the war on drugs will go down alot and the goverment would
earn a shitload of money by taxing it.

And its not like 90% of the people will start smoking when it will be legalised.
Why? Look at holland.

Holland has succeeded in making pot look boring.


I remember watching this UK one off show, it was set in 2014 and chocolate had become illegal. What was interesting is how chocolate was being portrayed in same way we see cocaine now in the show.

When it's legal it dosen't have the same excitement and cool factor to it. So i guess it's natural for this to happen with anything.

Apparently cannabis is so easy to grow that people wouldn’t have to buy heavily taxed commercial stuff.

In Belgium you're allowed to have one female plant for personal use and you have to smoke it in private places.
Distribution/dealing will get you in jail if you don't have a license/shop to sell it.
In my opinion it should be like this everywhere, even though weed never convinced me of being worth it's money.

Correction, street pot is easy to grow, to grow really good pot it takes a lot of work and tending to the plants.

Problem for the elite is that street pot is enough for everyone to wake up! Street pot will be enough to stop cancers, and all manner of diseases which the FDA make gigantic profits off every year off peoples deaths with all sorts of toxic pills to just relief symptoms.

Contrary to popular or well it was popular belief; nobody is spending much money on research for curing cancer. Everything is being spent on pills and medicine to just 'relief' symptoms.

Let's face it, if someone finds a cure for cancer, they will make a large lump sum for a period of i'd say about a year at the most and then that will be it. Compared to finding a relief drug, where you will conitnue making money for years and years, funny how people never think of this: once you are cured, the symptoms are never coming back, relief just takes the symptoms away for the time being!

Probably explains why smoking medicinal marijuana is legal once give approval by doctors to paitents:

1. It only a releif for symptoms, it does not cure them.
2. It further conditions people to think that marijuana is just a plant to be smoked, when the entire plant should be used properly weather it's the seeds, or the THC extracted into an oil.

The elite couldn’t care less about those who use weed to smoke, they just arrest them when they need a ‘bust’ and also need to feed the prison business empire. It’s when people start using it properly is why they are so scared. It would shut the FDA down immediately! We need to break the conditioning so people stop thinking about marijuana as just a plant to be smoked!

They say money makes the world go round.
