No brainer. Prison population drops and Uncle Sam gets more revenue.
It worked much better for me after my total knee replacement than the Hydrocodone they prescribed for me.
Well in his defense, and I really have no burning desire to protect him, he used much of the same research and information that opponents of legalization still cling to today. At least he was big enough to admit he was misinformed (or misled.) Most people are so entrenched in their position, right or wrong, that they're incapable of change despite new/better data.
Nor gonna happen until they find a way to keep people from growing their own. Can't tax that.
Keep homegrown pot illegal. Kick in their doors, shoot their dogs, etc. Just be sure to have the right address.
No different than people making their own wine or beer. If you get too big, they will find you eventually. I always thought that money was the best motivator. If you pay attention, that is what drives the laws for bounty hunting. They get to be "creative" because the bail bondsmen are out of some money and they want it back. Same thing with credit card companies. If they are out, they get even, VERY efficiently.
According to Gupta's studies (or actually, reviewing other studies already out there), the "addictive" (psycho dependence) rate for cannabis is 08-10%, but the rate for negative psycho-active responses to cannabis doesn't seem to be charted.
It is not a perfectly "safe" drug, but does seem to have fewer negative side effects for a smaller percentage of folks, than alcohol, tobacco, cocaine, and heroin.
No question Gupta gets some credit for admitting error.
