I hope so. It is folly to continue this crusade against marijuana.

Them giving it back to street dealers is in no way good.

until it is taxed and regulated, we will still have a problem with crime surrounding it.

As the effects of legalizing marijuana under Initiative 502 – both expected and unexpected – begin to surface, one of the more strange scenes had to have been witnessing Seattle police hand marijuana back to suspected drug dealers.

How exactly does taxing pot lower crime?

Why should it be ?
Seems to me, taxed and regulated promotes crime by those wanting to avoid either or both.

The private sector can regulate marijuana itself, after all we have been doing it for years with out gvt intervention. It is grown, processed, and sold. As far as regulation if you have bunk weed you will have trouble selling it. If you have some killer it will sell easily. It makes me sick that people think we need the gvt to tax and regulate everything. And those same people will talk about what a freedom lover they are.

How will the policie ever be able to purchase the best armored vehicles tht confiscated drug money can buy?

The result in Seattle is a good thing - were the cops going to smoke the pot?

Might as well put it to good use.
