Look past tax revenue on marijuana issue

I am totally out of my mind when I see our elected officials want to legalize marijuana after reading day after day, articles about the possible damage to the brain, which every body already knows. Oh boy, we can collect $20 million by just legalizing the dope. It seems to me that every elected official has nothing on their brain, except how can we tax these idiots more so we can look good handing out bundles of money to all the failing schools and all the other wasteful projects.

There are a few of us still left who were born in the bottom of the first Depression when nobody had any money. Write this down somewhere so you can refer to it: it is just about to happen again, and i am so old and worn out now that I won’t have to hang around to enjoy the next one with you.
