CNN news story

CNN had posted a story the other day about "The War On Drugs". Is it time for us to finally legalize it. If you think of the amount of money and time spent on arresting soft drug users it just makes no sense to me to keep trying to arrest people for it.

that's true. how many years will it take before congress and the politicians realize how much money they are wasting on this? i bet we could cut a big chunk of the budget deficit if they would just legalize it. Heck I would not paying taxes on it if it was legal. Besides I could grow a really good crop and enjoy doing it if I was not worried about getting arrested. I could see growing it being my favorite hobby.

I was all in agreement until he said that about securing the border with Mexico.

Going to move this to Poltics and Current Affairs. This is a legalization story but its a news article so I'm going with this choice for that reason.
