RoccoGiovanni saidSmoking is disgusting period. Smoking something that is illegal (whether you think it should or shouldn't be... it is still currently illegal) is even worse.
Yes, it's a deal breaker.
A point of note: it's illegal to have sex with someone you aren't married to, in most places, and sodomy remains illegal, to this day, in many states, but, folks do it all the time.
If we're concerned about saving lives, and think we should do it via the legal system, then, the very first thing we should do is to make being a fat ass criminal.
With 75% of all folks in jail on any given day for a pot offense of a non-violent nature, and with 85% of ALL folks in jail on a non-violent, drug offense; with nearly 3 MILLION folks in jail; a police industrial complex that bleeds money at $595,000 a minute on a failed drug policy, we really need to start applying some common sense and looking at policy in more advanced countries in Europe. Clearly, our current policy is getting thousands killed south of the border, bleeds money that could be used for other purposes, ruins the lives of so many, and is a dismal failure, even on a good day, that not even the GAO thinks is a good idea.
Just FYI, I don't smoke pot, or cigs, but, you don't have to be all that smart to figure out our current policy is beyond bad and is only lining the pockets of the folks involved in enforcement and the trade, and nearly 2.5 million folks are injected into the legal system, needlessly, every year, because of it, with HUGE costs to society.
