Larry Comeau seems to believe that legalizing marijuana amounts to
"government adding another dangerous drug to the mix". The pot is
already out there and legalizing it will not increase usage. However I
do agree that all drug usage needs national attention.

The federal government should set up a new agency which will receive 
100% of the new taxes raised through the production and distribution of 
marijuana. This agency would invest in education and rehabilitation for 
all drug users including alcoholics. I would hate to see all this new 
tax revenue disappear down the bottomless pit we call government budgets.
