The sooner pot is legalized, the better for the country
Think of the cash windfall for the economy
Think of all the lives that wouldn't be destroyed by job-stopping criminal records and being forced to live with truly dangerous criminals.
Special interests are keeping pot illegal, but legalization would do so much for this country. We have less than a 1/3rd of the population of China and yet we have 25% more prisoners. That number would be cut in half if we ended or began transitioning out of the drug war.
