-10.7 Billion dollars down the drain
-Not to mention the 30 Billion we’re missing out on by not regulating and taxing marijuana.
-829,627 people are arrested every year for marijuana offenses. That’s more than the entire population of North Dakota + the entire population of a small American city
42 BILLION dollars that could have been spent on:
-We could pass the State Children’s Health Insurance Program that Bush is threatening to veto (because it costs too much!): 7 Billion
– We could hire 880,000 schoolteachers at the average U.S. teacher salary of $47,602 per year.
-Or give every one of our current teachers a 30 percent raise (at a cost of $15 billion, according to the American Federation of Teachers) and use what’s left to take a $27 billion whack out of the federal deficit.
-Or use all $42 billion for a massive tax cut that would put an extra $140 in the pockets of every person in the country — $560 for a family of four.
PS-no dumbass jokes please (r u high?)

9 out of 10 people agree so far…. I would say that if you surveyed the entire country, the numbers would be similar
