    muggs ~ I think I love you. ((heart, heart)) lol. You have brought up a valid point, "when they reach the age of having political power then they will change the laws anyway". EXACTLY.

    We have so many that smoke pot and will never stop due to laws, some sort of legalization would certainly put a damper on these Mexican cartels, there has to be some way to overcome our thinking that this will cause caos, criminal activity, wasted efforts by law enforcement, tax dollars chasing a ghost, I don't myself but sure know many that did and do, they are not ciminals and all are successful at their chosen fields, the stgma was generated from the early years, you know that movie "Reefer Madness", our government is fighting and losing a battle that needs to be controlled not banned. WE have fought this war for 50 to 60 years at least, more people smoking now than ever before, when they reach the age of having political power then they will change the laws anyway, the old guard will submit to demands, doing it now will save lives, funds and cut down on crime.
