These states, Colorado and Washington, will be SORRY for legalizing pot use.
Addictions will increase, and not just marijuana but also meth and heroin in
this new more lawless environment. Mental health admissions and automobile
accidents will increase, costing insurers and the states a new fortune. Taxes
collected likely won't cover these costs. Perhaps most importantly, many of
the new (and there will be many new users) pot smokers will fail to contribute
much to the economy. They will hang out, smoke dope, and figure out some excuse
to apply for disability. Finally, good luck keeping this out of the hands of
teenagers. I personally am thankful to live in a state that will never legalize
drug abuse or gambling.
"We're really going to need to get all hands on deck to sort through
this," he said.Brilliant! Make it legal, and THEN figure out how
to sort through it.It will be interesting to see how this all plays
out. On so many levels...
Isn't it ironic that the Obama administration will hammer a state for
enforcing Federal immigration laws and stop them from cracking down on illegal
immigration at the same time that they allow states to openly disobey federal
law and ignore Pot smokers?
I can see it coming when we know in the Bible when Noah saw his Dove brining a
leaf from dry land. And for many years we see so many different plants being
grown unexpectly and knowing it was from those other birds. Pretty soon we will
see Weeds growing in our state soon. Pretty sad day.Drunk driver
kills innocent people and pretty soon we will see those drivers being HIGH.
