Really World, I think it's time
People, it's time to legalize the good stuff. Oh, I'm serious here and I'm not talking about bacon.
Rio de Janeiro just got into a war with drug traffickers, Willie Nelson was arrested, and even Mommy bloggers are talking about how they used the stuff to combat morning sickness. It's time to stop the madness!
So what is a girl to do? Legalize Marijuana! For goodness sake, cigarettes are legal and smoking those is like sucking on an exhaust pipe full of rat poop. Oh, people can kill themselves slowly but they can't get happy while they do it? I don't see the contradiction in that at all.
The thing is, weed would be one hell of a cash crop. Just think about it, Rio de Janeiro just arrested all those drug traffickers. Let's put their knowledge to good use. Bust out some fields, make them work it as community service while serving time, roll 'em up, box 'em, and then tax the crap out of them. Do governments not realize how many people would be stoners if it were socially acceptable? We're talking an end to National Debt.
And on a side note, cut out the middle man. If our kids want to get some of Puff the Magic Dragon's treats, let them get it from a safe place. Nothing safer than a gas station. It's my bunker of choice. And cut out the connection to harder drugs. Once your kid has a dealer, it's only a matter of time until other drugs come up in the conversation. Ok, that's really apples and oranges, peaches and tires, but maybe there's some logic in there somewhere.
I'm just saying, Legalize Marijuana as a Method to Reduce Crime rate and make a little cash while the Government is at it.
What are your thoughts on the legalization of Marijuana?
