A thought just came to mind. an argument I have not heard, bear with me.
I am thinking this through as I type.
Our country has some damn fine cropland, owned by Mom & Pops, sitting idle.
Why, low prices and low demand for ag products.
The beer we're drinking was illegal during prohibition.
The ingredients come from where?
"If" pot were legalized, wouldn't our farmers be allowed to grow it?
The so called "industry" would be "home grown", less imported.
The "taxes will be worth it" argument is ok, but, if it's gonna put people to work and give agriculture a boost, maybe it could work.
Plus the border drug runners won't be needed, poor basterds!
The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!
