    ...but there's no profit in that. What, do you hate capitalism and freedom?(sarcasm)

    Some of these things are just common sense, and the opinion of the vast majority of Americans. However the profit motive is too strong and all of our politicians are basically bought off...so this has little chance of changing. There's no way in hell we make a dramatic change of course and stop becoming an empire. Collapse will happen first.

    But there are potentially MEGA amounts of money waiting for the government once they tax pot sales, which is what will eventually happen once the old timers finally get over the specter of "reefer madness".

    I just really hope that it won't be the traditional tobacco companies who'll get to 'cash in' on the pot market.
