Pot. Maryjane. The silly weed.
Yeah, that’s right. Legalizing marijuana is more popular than House Minority Leader Boehner and Senate Minority Leader McConnell combined! It is singlehandely more popular than George W. Bush (then again, I think sitting in your own feces would be), Rush Limbaugh, and the Republican arm of the US Congress.
And you know what? It’s actually not a bad idea… Every state is having a massive budget deficit right now. Want a quick and easy source of taxable income for the states? Legalize, manage, and tax marijuana. Oregon has a ballot initiative that will be going to the voters in 2010, making Oregon state-controlled liquor stores the condiut to legalized marijuana. You think the leaders in Salem don’t already know this would be a huge boon to tax revenues? There’s a big article on it (haven’t read it yet due to boarding time for my flight, but it’s here).
