I used to think legalizing and taxing marijuana would be a good 
thing. I thought it was a win-win situation. First a new revenue 
source and second a more efficient use of police resources no longer 
spent dealing with its use as a crime. I may have been right but now 
we can see how it works out in the U.S. and get a free look at how it 
works out. I believe our two cultures have enough in common that if 
it works there it can work here and if turns out to be a bad idea, we 
are warned.
