Sorry, no featured properties currently.
Excel, whether it comes from Colorado OR Mexico, it is a symptom of it's illegality. Bootleg market will dictate that the product goes where it demands the most money, where it is illegal.
Rather than take the perspective that Colorado shouldn't have legal herb, the correct response is that NY and NJ should. That would take the commerce out of the hands of the criminals, and put money in the states budgets, instead of drawing them down to pretend we are making a dent in stopping it. Prohibition 101.
Topper11-smoking herb is victimless, unlike murder. Faulty logic.
THERE IS MORE MONEY IN PRETENDING WE ARE STOPPING IT THAN IN SELLING IT.

That spirit has 25 families out of their homes in central Ohio currently due to an unstoppable gas leak from a frack well.
Same spirit will leave same families without compensation for it because of the spirit of the fossil fuel industry's legal staff and bribed politicians in Ohio.
Screw the little guy.

"You suck because you frack" .
Merry Christmas to all you (hopefully) temporarily homeless.
Good thing we gave all those Texan carpetbaggers jobs. That makes up for it all, right ?

I referred generically to many of the studies available. I listed the first five google results to my inquiry.
You cited one, with no bibliography, and obviously right wing.
My main reference was statistics from the Justice department comparing population, arrests, and incarceration.
Water tight unless you don't want to believe. Which is totally the case. But you can't argue with stupid. You don't even know by your own admission, who CCA is, a very major player and beneficiary of doing justice the current way, by the highest bidder.
Done wasting my time.

There is more money made in pretending we are stopping it than in selling it.

I wasn't "debunked" at all. Steivo might as well have cited Faux News.
That's why I cited the Justice Departments figures and not a conservative think tank's SPIN on said numbers. Also, there is NO bibliography on the Manhattan Institute's article. Their #'s might as well be pulled from their arse.
I could have cited numerous ACLU articles and Studies which DO provide sources, but chose not to because of the likelihood of being attacked as partisan spin rather than actualities.
Incidentally, the Manhattan Institute also offers spin on Fracking, destroying the public school system, and defunding medicare.

I'm not going to do the research for you. It is common knowledge. There are studies abundant in a quick google search citing everyone from The U.S. Justice Department's Bureau of Justice Statistics, comparing arrest rates to incarceration rates and sentencing, to independent studies from groups like Human Rights Watch and the ACLU.
There are Law Enforcement interest groups like LEAP, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition who can help school your ignorant point of view, from their day to day experience in the streets.
Replace your anger and fear and thirst for revenge with knowledge, sanity, and a sense of informed justice, and I will begin to respect your OPINIONS.

Study after study has shown that whites and blacks use drugs at nearly the same rate. It fluctuates due to population demographics. Those same studies show that non whites are jailed at a much higher rate.
But I'm going to quit trying to teach a mule to read....

I'm misguided ?
But YOU don't know anything about CCA and your only answer to this issue is to remain doing the same thing that has not worked, and has wasted taxpayer money, on racist policies since Nixon ?
Sheesh ! That's a good one !
