I really don't think you guys want it legalized and regulated. Your Oz. of chronic would go from 300 to 600 bucks overnight.
The price wouldn't rise if it were regulated/'legalized'... it may even drop.
I don't advocate legalization because I want to smoke it, I can do that regardless of the law. I simply want thousands of incarcerated people who have done nothing
to another individual released from prison... and therefore doing something productive for society. Removing the laws will also reduce the violent proliferation to near zero, no more drug gangs, no more cartels, no more "war on drugs".
Less violence, less coercion, more voluntary interaction. All staples of a healthy society.
If you think smoking and driving puts people in danger advocate making that action illegal. Smoking in one's home has nothing to do with driving intoxicated.
