    Legalize it! That huge windfall of cash from sales will be a billion a year. Fund schools, roads, police. Small businesses are done. State budgets are in shambles. Only way ahead is inflation. Unless the stock market crashes. And with so many pensions plans done away with the 401 k plans will absorb the losses. 6 months till vaccine shot will be available. Cannabis money is very generous to the states coffers. Do it!

      It makes too much sense to legalize it so it won’t be legalized.
