Re: “Another pioneering opportunity for Arkansas — marijuana

Whether we like it or not, millions of people are consuming cannabis daily, and the justice system neither has the will nor the resources to find and prosecute all of them -- especially when marijuana use causes so little obvious harm.

Considering these facts, the real question is whether we'd rather have consumers purchase their cannabis in licensed stores that pay taxes and ID customers -- OR -- have them buy it in high school parking lots from violent, Mexican-cartel linked drug dealers who often sell cocaine and heroin alongside the pesticide-tainted "marijuana" they offer.

Which option do you think is best?

No matter your answer to the above, another fact remains:

“Prohibition cannot be enforced for the simple reason that the majority of the American people do not want it enforced and are resisting its enforcement. That being so, the orderly thing to do under our form of government is to abolish a law that cannot be enforced, a law which the people of the country do not want enforced.” – New York Mayor Fiorello La Guardia
