    The “it’s a plant that God made” is an old, silly argument. It’s a poor method of trying to get it legalized.

    However, arresting people for this is a waste of taxpayer money and throwing them in prison is a bigger, lengthier waste. We are being asked to approve increases in taxes for bigger jails while a majority of people inside them taking up space are because of drug-related offenses. Leave the jails for those who are abusing and killing others not for stuff like this.
