Let's see now, talk about leaks, if they decriminalized marijuana and taxed it like cigarettes and alcohol.
The tax coffers would grow by the hundreds of millions.
The prisons would have tons of room for murderers, child molestors, rapists, violent gang members, rotten violent people etc..
Law enforcement could concentrate on murderers, child molestors, rapists, violent gang members, hard drugs, illegals, embezzellers, etc.
The courts would be freed up to concentrate on all of the above.
The price of it would drop and remove the allure of a quick profit.
Jobs would be created and people might mellow out a bit.
