Today we are once again going to discuss about the only topic for which I might be considered a liberal thinker, and that is the legalization of cannabis sativa for both medical and personal usage. You can believe me when I tell you that I honestly believe that it should be legalized too. However this time I am approaching the idea of a state legalizing it instead of the federal government.

The state I am talking about is none other than the great state of California. This state is having so much financial trouble right now that it has to pay all of its bills with IOU’s. The California state legislature and senate have been working overtime to come up with a plan to fix their 26 billion dollar deficit that everyone would agree to. While it appears that they may actually succeed they will still need help.

Meanwhile the state of California’s largest cash crop sits there untapped and the criminals are the only ones who are benefiting financially from its cultivation, harvesting, and distribution. I think California could seriously take advantage of this potentially large financial state resource and help solve their financial problems that much quicker. All they have to do is realize that marijuana legalization is the cure not the sickness.

Now I am not going to sit here and tell you that marijuana legalization is going to solve all of California’s financial problems overnight, but it would go a long ways towards reaching state financial solvency much faster if it is applied to California’s potential budget deficit plan. All California would have to do is come up with a plan for affordable prices, taxes, farming, and distribution.

There is more than enough evidence to show that Marijuana is not only a financial goldmine, but that it is a lot less of a health risk to consumers than alcohol and tobacco. As it is medicinal marijuana is already legal and city, county, and state law enforcement agencies rarely ever arrest or prosecute for possession. So acceptance of marijuana legalization is already in place by the state, law enforcement, and citizens of California.

As far as the federal government is concerned I don’t personally believe that they are capable of stopping California from taking the steps necessary to legalize marijuana. I also think that they are unwilling to expend tax payer resources in an effort to raid, arrest, prosecute, and imprison anyone who would be involved in various capacities in a state sanctioned legal cannabis industry.

That is all from Simple Man Politics for this week, but we will be back next week. Have a fantastic weekend my friends CIAO4NOW!!!!!


Well, no doubt raising marijuana would fix up their money problems.

Actually, I think it should be legalized in all states, at least for medical purposes!
