Why Not Pot ~ =_?

All my friends really love their pot
You ask them why, they say why not
They sure do laugh and giggle a lot
Worrying that they might get caught

"It never did kill anyone", says Scott
Points to his head, thumb half cocked
Yells out "BANG" and does a flop
Gets back up and eats a Tater Tot

They go into panic whenever there's a cop
Hide their bag of weed and pipe in their sock
Go over their story's in case their stopped
Possession charges are hard to get dropped

Legalization would really rock
All the other States would begin to talk
Smoking pot shouldn't equal a cell block
Let the real criminals caught, sit and rot

Alaska legalized it, have you forgot?
It didn't cause a problems at Woodstock
I think we ought to give it a shot
Food for thought people, remember Scott?

    Mitch, I read your comment that you sent my way regarding this topic....and your reply really hits the issue over the head--The tax revenue and massive influx of job creation is a HUGE plus side, to outweigh some of the negative issues....and the negative issues are not as heavy as drinking and driving or becoming addicted to pharma-pills with names that have a bunch of x's in them lol. Chris.

    I am not going to advocate drugs....but I grew up in British Columbia, Canada, so it is easier to stop throwing people in prison for marijuana charges, and fill the cells with pedaphiles, murderers and rapists. But then people say that guns and murder go hand in hand with dealing drugs....this is true, but I am talking about a bunch of hippies growing outdoor for their arthritis etc....Chris.
