Old News But is it Fading News
I originally posted this here on 28 February, 2006.
While it is still interesting I wonder if busts like these are going to soon be history. Colorado reportedly earned over 2 million dollars from recreational marijuana sales in the first month it was legal alone. Furthermore, although some sources disagree, it seems that the legalization has actually lowered the crime rate.
I have also wondered why the government seems to have completely forgotten about why The Prohibition was lifted. The reality is that if people want to smoke pot, they are going to do so whether it is legal or not. The same would be true if they made tobacco illegal.
