“We’re encouraged and more convinced than ever that we will eventually prevail,” said David Sloane, a spokesman for DFW Norml, a North Texas group that promotes marijuana legalization. “Prohibition is far more harmful to our communities than marijuana ever will be, and taxpayers are sick of their money being used to support failed drug war policy.”

    We have so much of this coming across the border illegally, so it sure is selling somewhere. We need to legalize it, tax it and regulate it, just as we do tobacco and alchol.
