In reply to: Pot votes in 2 states challenge US drug war »

November 8, 2012

Maybe if pot were legalized in all 50 states and grown in the U.S., the Mexicans would not have to worry about pot going over the border. Maybe the cartels would find less demand for their product. Maybe the drug trafficer would go the way of the bootlegger. Maybe it could actually be a profitable crop. Maybe this crop could be a source of tax revenue. Maybe our law enforcement could spend time and resources on more important issues. Maybe we could free up some jail space for more serious criminals. Maybe our government should quit trying to control our lives. Maybe Monte Python will make a sudden resurgence. Maybe stocks of Frito Lay would go through the roof.

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child.

An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
