And there are good moral people in the cities that voted FOR Sunday sales Councilman Smith. They just don't see any point in having a law that doesn't achieve anything. You're going to see the exact same thing happen when we finally get to vote on allowing stores to sell legally-grown marijuana to adults. We have a right to expect that our laws are based on logic, and we have a right to expect that our laws create more good than harm. The federal marijuana prohibition fails on both these counts!

How was Judge Peters able to obtain marijuana when marijuana is totally banned from being produced or sold in our country? Are you saying that the federal marijuana prohibition doesn't work?

The prohibition costs taxpayers $40 billion a year, generates 700,000 marijuana-related arrests each year, diverts $10 billion to the Mexican drug cartels every year, has caused the death of more than 35,000 people in Mexico over just the last four years, and lures drug dealers into our neighborhoods to sell their stinking weed to our children. If the prohibition doesn't work then we have to END IT!!

We need legal adult marijuana sales in supermarkets, gas stations and pharmacies for exactly the same reason that we need legal alcohol and tobacco sales - to keep unscrupulous black-market criminals out of our neighborhoods and away from our children! Marijuana should be legal to sell to adults everywhere that alcohol and tobacco are sold.
