California voters may pass "Proposition 19" in a statewide ballot on 2 November effectively legalising Marijuana. Once it is passed in California there will be domino effect on all of the other states, in a similar manner as when prohibition on alcohol ended.
The effects of decriminalising marijuana would help end the vast drug cartel earnings in Mexico alone. Mexican drug trafficking crooks earn some $1bn- $2bn (£630m to £1.26bn) annually from smuggling marijuana to the US market and of course that figure may be greatly underestimated.
Needless to say if the proposition is enacted a very lucrative amount of tax will be collected in state taxation on legal spliffs.
If marijuana is legalised in California, how long will it take for the same to happen in Europe? How long will it take to happen here?
You only have to look at the money the "legal" headshops were raking in and earnings taxed, now of course due to the idiots in government, handed back to drug dealers and other scum.
I would be happy to see marijuana being legalised, taxed and monitored, hopefully much better than the alcohol drug industry in Ireland
