How about legalize the drug marijuana and eliminate 99% of the drugs crossing the border as we will then be allowed to grow it in the us and keep the profits here not over in Mexico. If we allow the price of pot to crash to say 50$ a ounce which is completely feasible there will be little to any profit in transporting it into the US. This plant has been proven to not cause any harm and has even been shown to treat hundreds of health related complications along with being safer than alcohol. The drug war is an utter failure and marijuana is the only thing keeping it alive. Less than 1 in 100 pot users use cocaine and less than that use heroin. How about the taxes collected on the marijuana are used to provide assistance to drug rehabilitation clinics for the hard drug users. Stop the crime stop the gangs stop the violence stop the money flowing out stop the stupidity that Nixon signed into law to stop the war protest. Marijuana was given to the people by God to use and save the world, I would imagine within 10 yrs of legalization we will see a economic boom that would revitalize this world to a whole new level. People get it now its time for the government to stop taking the corporate payments from the pharma, tobacco, alcohol, and prison lobbyists. Thanks for reading this now go do your research and find out whats really going on.
