Billions of dollars can be made if the government would just legalize recreational marijuana.
It's legal here in CO.... I personally feel we're a test ground to see how much money it brings in and the results of making it legal.
Whether we want to admit it or not, to many it's a gateway drug. If weed is legal and no big deal, then "bad" things like coke won't seem like such a big deal. I understand the psychological game the government is playing with drugs to keep people off of them, but I don't agree with it all.
That's really a tough one imo..... But I can saying when something is illegal, Americans have a tendency to want to do it more then people from other countries. So maybe this psychological game is proving a bad idea because our drug use in the U.S. is so high.
