  •  I'm pretty confused as to why you think (6+ / 0-)

    a pack of 5 joints selling for 4.50 behind the counter, and the occasional dirty clerk who sells to kids until he gets caught, is someone how a great deal worse than assholes slinging shit on the corner.

    Cannabis isn't tobacco.  It's not highly addictive.

    We're not talking about medicinal cannabis either.  We're talking about letting adults have control of what they choose to put in their own bodies.

    I seriously doubt that "Marijuana stores" will exist after legalization, except as expensive botique stores in affluent areas.  Most people will just be buying it where they already get their popular drugs like alcohol and nicotine.

    income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%
