uncharted waters

Written by: andrew delapruch

as Colorado & Washington
have thrown the dice,
the first big step in the direction
of legalizing pot
has made people against the 
measure begin to stir in their
ridiculously naïve funk,
whilst proponents who do not
live in either of the two states
are no doubt, discuss with their
significant others is
a lot of rain & a lot of
snow,
is worth the move.

while there is question as to whether
the feds will step in & crush the
measures, or how commercialized
the actions could become if they are
allowed to experiment in these
uncharted waters,
“domestically grown
marijuana is thought to be the second
most profitable cash crop in the United
States.”

whilst the dead horse does not have to
be beaten, that is,
we do not need to go back in time &
look at how economically 
successful Prohibition was
in comparison to the wealth of profit &
jobs which the industry has continued to
pump into our economy since its 
repeal.

idiots (growing closer to death now) will stand
up & yell 
“it’s a gateway drug,” as if everyone who smokes a
joint follows by tying off,
but the ways in which legalization
could help the economy of this country is
undeniable.
