Marijuana War Being Fed by the Feds
The continued prohibition against marijuana and the lack of commitment by our political leaders to change this is creating a huge market for the black market drug dealers across the land. Individuals in the United States of America works extremely hard, and there are many of them that abide by the law. They work every day 40 hours sometimes more each week to pull in salaries of $30,000 to $50,000 a year. In one simple instance, in less than a week an individual can drive 200 pounds of marijuana across the country. Purchasing the marijuana in California and taking it to the east coast where medical grade Mary Jane is not readily available. Here the black market dealers charge as much as four to$3,000 to $6,800 per pound. For the sake of argument let's say they buy a pound in California for $2,000, and they run it across country to New York. There they sell it for $6,000. This is a $4,000 per pound profit for the black market dealers. This means moving 200 pounds less just say at a profit of $2,000 a pound, that one shipment nets $400,000 in profit. This one shipment can be made several different times throughout the year, and it is easy to see how this amount of money is tempting to many.
Black Market Dealers Make in One Year What the Average Worker Makes in Ten Years
These extreme profits being made by black market drug dealers would not be there if the prohibition on marijuana were to end. Individuals who charge $20 and $30 a gram for marijuana would be out of business. At $20 a gram someone who pays $4,000 a pound can sell that pound for $8,960. There is still plenty of money to be made for all of the black market dealers and this is being fed by the feds! With legalization there would be order. There would be licensed facilities that provide medical grade marijuana in a safe environment for individuals to obtain medical marijuana as well as recreational marijuana. This marijuana would be taxed and could be used to benefit each state in which the taxes were collected in. These taxes would pay for schools, roads, drug education programs, and would allow for police officers and law enforcement agencies nationwide to focus on more severe crimes such as burglaries, homicides, and other dangerous and violent crimes. Not to mention and increased war against cocaine and heroin would benefit people everywhere.
Supporting the Black Market Dealers by Supporting the War on Drugs
By continuing the war on drugs and prohibition on marijuana the federal government is fueling the black market drug dealer’s bank account. Although it would seem that the federal government has been protecting the cartels and big time drug dealers since way back in the 80's during the Reagan administration and before. Currently in the Obama administration we see the same thing as he is a wolf in sheep's clothing or should I say sheep in wolves clothing. I'm not quite sure. What I do know is that he has been worse for marijuana than any other president yet. He has stood there and lied to the people about his intentions. He is no different than the other individuals in the past and the rest of them out there that still stand against marijuana. They are greedy power-hungry individuals who need to be removed from office, and this will only happen when people together unite and put an end to the evil tyrant that reign throughout this country. By stopping the profits of black market drug dealers not only will the quality of life be increased for everyone but dangerous situations will be eliminated allowing for an overall relief to an already stressed economic structure that is on the verge of crumbling.
Stand United and Stand tall Against Evil Power Hungry Political Figures
We can make a change if we come together as a nation and rise above the childish ways and emotional temper tantrums of the political figures in office today. They are using every form of power they can to seal their records and hide their wrongdoings. Scott Walker, Hillary Clinton, Ben Carson, pretty much pick a person in office and there is the problem. I mean Hilary had over 250k raised to pay off her debt for losing the 2008 attempt at office. That is money that came from people who want favors in return. 121 people was all it took to raise those funds. To bad it doesn’t work that way for our soldiers.
