If ever these "ignorant politishions" would relise that leagalising marijuana.They could tax it 25% for tax revenue'and a good majority of people would choose it over drinking alcohol. And no' it does not lead (or gate way to) harder drugs. I smoked it for 30 years' never prompted me to want crack or heroin or methanphedimean.
