Refute what I said with cited science instead of hysterical Propaganda. Did you ever exceed a speed limit? Do you want to reinstate alcohol prohibition? Ban cell phones?
And there would be a black market, run by criminals for everything outlawed. Considering marijuana is safer than what the gvt currently allows, whats' the justification for it's prohibition. After all, the original laws were conceived and born from lies,greed and racism.
