    Cannabis prohibition is a stupid waste of police and court resources.

    An estimated $150,000,000,000 (150 BILLION) PER YEAR from recreational cannabis sales in America goes directly into the hands of organized crime and criminals. Legalization will take this fortune away from criminals and drug lords and place it into the hands of legitimate responsible business.

    Another $15,000,000,000 (15 BILLION) is wasted on needless cannabis law enforcement.

    Another $30,000,000,000 (30 BILLION) lost in potential tax revenue.

    BILLIONS and BILLIONS down the toilet every year due to ridiculous cannabis prohibition laws that make no sense and destroy people’s lives daily.

    Legalize, regulate and TAX! Vote YES Nov 8
