    I have only skimmed this thread, so please forgive me if this has already been mentioned. But, in regards to the tax benefits... (with legalization) if the tax was high, and the potency was controlled, don't you all still think there would be an underground market for super-potent and tax free pot?

    For those looking for sound arguments on the legalization of marijuana, here are some very good sources of information.

    View on youtube Judge James Gray, Milton Friedman and Dr. Ron Paul on their views regarding this topic. They all present a case that open your eyes a bit to reality. Particularly in the case of children, their access to illegal substances and how prohibition of drugs offers little or no protection for minors because drug dealers don't ask id to purchase these drugs. Marijuana and other drugs are going to be used legally or illegally and the world is better off having these drugs regulated by the citizens of the country and not by the dreadful people who are getting rich selling them like at present. Given a choice, if you were to buy beer for a barbecue, would you buy it from a private source that provides no information about the contents of the bottles or would you purchase from your local beer store that content is listed and quality control on the product is enforced. Come on, let's stop being so ignorant and naive.
