    Hey, I understand why so many folks believe pot should be legalized, but I am not sure why so many of them also believe it should be taxed. Legalizing it would save taxpayers billions of dollars. That savings alone should be an adequate financial incentive. Look at it this way, we'd spend billions if we were make it illegal to possess tomatoes. Since it's not illegal to possess them, should we start taxing folks who grow them in their back yard? How about a pecan tax? Hey, we could tax every nut in Texas, but that would be sexist wouldn't it? Hmmm. Well, we could impose an egg tax too!

    There is an estimated 26,000,000 people that smoke pot in the U.S.A.. If the government was to sell one joint to each one of them for two dollars and one went to the producers and one to the government that would be $26,000,000 per day. That don't include the fact that most potheads would buy three or four a day and the price would be four to six dollars each. The permit money for the growers to grow it, the fines and busts for illegal growers, and the Mexican drug cartel out of business since pot is their biggest income ending the border wars. Win Win situation. You say pot leads to harder drugs? Ha! you have to get it from drug dealers,"Duh". Does whiskey lead to harder drugs? Get your weed from a liquor store and that will no longer be a factor either!

      The only logical reason I can come up with why it remains illegal is the revenue it generates ALREADY to the government in the form of tickets, fines, court costs, lawyer fees, jail bonds, ect...an entire industry feeding off those unfortunate to get caught. The question is would the revenue generated by legalization EXCEED the revenue already generated by its criminalization? I believe it would considerably and, if the bottom line is what matters (since no moral excuse can be given why marijuana remains legal while cigs and liquor continue to kill thousands more each year) then legalization would create a billions dollar industry overnight. Perhaps its a matter of control. Can big industry capitalize as effectively if you have thousands of independent growers pop up as well? There are so many angles on this issue...and all seem to point to money...not morality!

        I might add also the question: Who grows their own tobacco? Who distills their own vodka? Notice how these two legal drugs are almost exclusively distributed by big corporations who can control the supply while simply allowing the addictive qualities of their products to provide the demand. I believe it is mainly in their interests that marijuana is illegal and they have lobbyists in DC to ensure it remains that way. Notice how its always the FEDERAL government going after the pot dispensaries in California or Colorado. The local police have stated they have no problems with them. They were authorized by STATE laws passed by a majority in an election...yet the FED can still come in and take them down. That tells me its the big tobacco and alcohol lobbyists in DC at the federal level pushing this...not necessarily the states.

    "Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded." The "War on Drugs" is unconstitutional, and by definition, UN-American.

    by arresting this man, what does it cost the taxpayers of sherman and grayson county? How much does it cost per day to house a prisoner, and if he cannot afford an attorney one will be provided to him at taxpayer expense. Of course while he is in jail and can't provide for his family there is food stamps and welfare to pick up support of his family, again at the expense of the taxpayers. We sure showed him he better not break the law and possess the demon marijuana in our town. Why don't we lock them all up, fill the jails so we have to build new ones that will be run by private companies that make a profit, and we can pay more taxes.

      Wow! Really?! This article had NOTHiNG to do with mexicans & for you to turn it into that just because you "like to be on cloud 9" (smh), is just plain ridiculous! Not to mention Childish! This man had weed in his home with TWO CHiLDREN!!! No child should ever have to be around that. People need to start thinking about their CHiLDREN 1st, before themselves. I'm a mother of a 3yr old little girl & Trust my child is my number 1. Tell me something smoker... do you have kids? Do you smoke around them? Is the weed more important than the safety of your children?! if so that just proves you are more idiotic than your comment you just posted!

    Geez it's not legal.. Deal with it! When they legalize it then get on here and start complaining about someone getting busted!! Just bc it wasn't a whole doesn't make it any less illegal!! Oh and also it's not his first offense with it!! And having kids in the house while selling the junk... Yeah that's smart! If you smoke pot, good for you.. If you get caught smoking it and you go to jail don't cry about it.. It's illegal!! As soon as they start putting them in a box of 20 and selling them over the counter with a surgeon generals warning on it, then ppl can complain that someone was taken to jail!! That's what's wrong with our country!! Yes it's only pot but last time I checked it's still an ILLEGAL drug! Grant it, it's not anywhere near as bad as the others but it hasn't been legalized for a reason!! Get over it... He broke the law. Whether he's a pothead of not!!

      Slavery & racial discrimination were legal once also... Does that make it right? We can complain about unjustified laws all we want.
