Now We're Talkin' Health Care Reform

President Obama has given new guidelines telling the feds to back off on arrest and prosecution of medical marijuana. I addressed this, in part, at my other blogsite, Rhapsody Road. Finally, something he and I agree on. This manufactured war on drugs from the Reagan years has done nothing but increase the number of prisons our country now has. And why would a so called G~Dly nation outlaw something HE created? Pot isn't like meth or LSD, or even drugs processed from plants. Pot isn't a composite of chemicals or cleaning supplies. Pot is the plant and the finished product, like; created just that way. I've always thought the war on drugs was really just to manage and create jobs. Health care in rehab, and guards in prison. And let us not forget an entirely new Cabinet Post for the executive branch of our ever expanding government. Legalizing pot makes sense on so many levels, but specifically economically. If pot is legalized for medical use, or just legalized in general, it becomes an agricultural crop. If pot is legalized, it becomes taxable. Pot is still being used, now; but the government is missing the revenue. As far as more power to drug cartels if it's legalized . . . is the most ridiculous of arguments. Drug cartels are in business to deliver illegal goods. Moonshine and the runners thereof; basically went out of business when prohibition was repealed. I'm guessing the same thing would happen with drug cartels, at least where marijuana is concerned. As a natural girl with MS, I'm all for the legalization of it, but my state is far from open minded, so until it's legal, I'll not be partaking, but I'm all about this portion of health care reform.
