I would like to make a reply to the recent spate of commercials which state 
that money spent on marijuana funds terrorism. If marijuana were legalized, 
the money would immediately stop funding terrorism and instead go to the 
states and federal government like much of the money from gas to tobacco 
does. A great many jobs would be created (there would be no more shortage 
of domestic farm labor!) and our police force could stop "terrorizing" a 
very large part of the population. Including marijuana in our nation's drug 
policy does not save children. It imprisons them.
