Re: “Big Business

When I voted for the Medical Marijuana Law I assumed the price would be around $50 an ounce. Not $50 for an eighth of an ounce. I can afford my $4 co-pay for 50 Vicodin pills a month. But I cannot afford $400 for an ounce of weed so I do without.

Re: “Get Your Gummy Worms Here

$420 an ounce? That is not what I thought I was voting for.

Re: “The Pot Economy

I submit that the vast majority of drug users would use only marijuana if it were available at an affordable price. But it is not available at an affordable price. During the early 1970s, marijuana sold for $10 to $20 an ounce. Now, it sells for over $400 an ounce.

Today's price of marijuana is the result of the "prohibition tax" that goes to organized criminals -- the government gets nothing.

If beer drinkers cannot get any beer, they switch to another type of alcoholic beverage.

If a marijuana user cannot obtain marijuana at an affordable price, many switch to other drugs -- like meth. And because marijuana is illegal, it is sold only by criminals. Criminals who often sell other drugs -- like meth. And their marijuana suppliers often give out free samples of other drugs -- like meth.


Thus the so-called "gateway effect."

If marijuana were legally available in licensed business establishments like tobacco and alcohol, our meth problem would be a tiny fraction of what it is today.

Our counterproductive drug policies have made the least toxic drug the most expensive, and the most toxic drug, the least expensive.

Re: “Danehy

Criminalizing drugs does not make them disappear. Criminalizing
abortion won't make the practice disappear.

John McCain is very vulnerable and John Dougherty can beat him.
Where can I sign up to help him do so?
