  •  Just stop wasting money on arresting (7+ / 0-)

    And jailing those with cannabis, including those selling it.

    We can't afford it any more. The War on Drugs has cost us far too much in money, broken families, and ruined lives.

      My backward state, Arkansas, lowered sentencing recommendations for up to four ounces as part of prison reform. We just flat couldn't afford it. At the discretion of the judge, it's a fine, and last year medical marijuana lost by only two percent.

      Dollars to doughnuts, we'll be the first southern state to legalize medical marijuana in 2014 ;)

      •  Yes, I've read there are three different (0+ / 0-)

        Bills being worked on. Maybe at least one will pass.

        The more the merrier.
