Stoners, rejoice: Another senator has a logical argument for legal pot2/12/2013
Pennsylvania State Sen. Daylin Leach just earned the vote of every pothead in the commonwealth. The financially-minded Democrat has proposed a bill that would legalize all uses of marijuana in the state for folks over 21. No, he's not defending everyone's right to chill out and relax; he says ending the prohibition would fatten up the state's coffers through tax revenue and save money prosecuting stoners. Leach argues that there's a lot of "money that we are leaving on the table ... by forcing marijuana to be sold in an untaxed, unregulated black market," a point that has been backed up by economists. If he gets his way, patients could light up without fear and Pennsylvanians could buy weed at state stores or grow up to six pot plants at home. [Source]
