Could Mary Jane Help Solve State's Budget Woes?
I spoke below of Pat Powers' (South Dakota War College) hypocrisy regarding nanny state legislation. I have in the past and will continue to advocate for the decriminalization of marijuana. It makes no sense to me, especially in tough economic times, to be spending taxpayer money to jail average citizens.
I'm not usually a fan of MSNBC. But take a look at this piece and ask yourself could we save enough money by decriminalizing mary jane to off-set the possible costs? I think we would be significantly money ahead.
