Very good point, I never thought of it that way, maybe we should find a test kit....
Yeah, that is a good point, and I don't think I've ever heard that brought up before. From a police point of view I can see that argument very clearly. I don't think that's why the legislators don't legalize it (fear and bias and ignorance come to mind), but it bears considering.
I've heard that argument before but I have to believe that they could come up with a way to test for a the level of THC in the body....to be able to tell if the driver had used recently. Either way it doesn't matter that's not the reason the wacky tobacky ain't legal.
From what I have heard that is one of the main reasons.
Taxing Mary how ever would make so much money for the government and country and put dealers out of business.
I dont see how they wont do it.
But in the end it comes down to, hey we said no this long why change.
The only person who could push for it would be Obama and that sadly would make or break his presidency so if he were to do it he would do it after re-election.
Granted it is being doing on a smaller level, state by state... see Colorado.
There are some states that just wont do it.
It always being classified as a drug is hurting its case too, it comes from the ground just like tobacco but tobacco has so many additives that it is sickening, while weed many people can grow for their own personal use.
Has anyone heard of this tobacco tax?
That a box of cigars and a carton of cigarettes are supposed to cost 40 dollars more than they do now.
My accounting teacher brought this up but I have not heard anything about it, anyone else?
