Enough of the oppressive, big-government drug war. Marijuana, cocaine
and heroin are available in larger quantities than before the drug war
began in 1971, while meth and crack emerged as new drugs in the 1980s.

Prohibition is not working, unless you are in the prison industry.
Stop legislating preference. Alcohol has been scientifically proven to
be worse than marijuana in terms of negative side effects and
addictiveness. There is no logical reason Marijuana should be illegal.

Throwing people into prison for drug use ruins people's lives and does
more harm than good  not to mention it costs billions to house drug
offenders in prison.

You want to pay fewer taxes. don't you?
