Obama and Congress... Can't you see how easy this is...
Raise taxes by 2% all around
Tax Cannabis at 7% sales tax
Require a License to grow Cannabis(Domestic License, and Commercial prices differ)
Require a License to sell Cannabis
Paying more taxes into the Gov. means the Gov. is doing less debt-spending, which means borrowing less money on the dollar.
By spending non-borrowed money, effectively...
YOU PAY MORE TAXES FOR MORE MONEY
Because foreign goods depreciate because YOUR DOLLAR IS WORTH MORE.
No-longer linked to the 'gateway drug' being as no one in the F*CKING WORLD STARTED SMOKING POT AND SAID, " HMMM THIS IS GOOD, I REALLY LIKE IT. I'LL TRY CRACK NEXT. "

Cannabis non-sarcastic Pros:
Anti-carcinogen, stress-reliever, pain-receipting blocker, useful for many illnesses but no-longer requires high amounts of jumping through hoops to get DNotes.
Blacks will stop being harassed due to racial profiling of 'random drug checks'
It's no-longer at an officers discretion to look at a group of people in a park that just-so-happen to have tie-die shirts on and funky shorts to 'break it up'
Cons of all this:
We'll need more people to fill all these new jobs for licensing branches- People absolutely hate finding jobs.
