    California Petitioner Says State Budget Problems Could Be Fixed by Pot

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,292799,00.html

    California's budget impasse has passed the one-month mark, social services aren't getting state-funded help they need to stay open, and other legislative priorities are being put off the table until the legislature can come to agreement.

    One California resident thinks he has the answer: Legalize the growth and sales of marijuana.

    Clifford Schaffer, who runs a marijuana advocacy Web site in his spare time from his day job as a computer programmer, says that California could easily clear up the $700 million budget gap still facing state lawmakers, and as a plus, the measure could even help improve national security. He has started a petition, and the number of those supporting his idea is growing rapidly.

    "We would honestly hope that they take our suggestion. Failing that, you know, what are the options?" Schaffer said in a telephone interview from his Agua Dulce, Calif., home. Otherwise, he said, "They're going to send another few billion to the drug lords in Mexico who are challenging the Mexican government."

    Not a bad idea, legitimize a business that is already making millions.. decrease prison populations, decrease the amount of people on probation and significantly add to the tax coffers. It exists, if you want it you can get it, things will not change all that significantly.

    POT:
    They might as well do it, there is more Pot growing now in California than anywhere in the world.

    Big Business, American people love their drugs

    Politicians, Judges, Lawyers, Cops, DEA, etc, love "Illegal Drugs"
