Theres no doubt that the HEMP industry has some major profitability potentials...I just don't see weed really taking off as a mainstream drug (ex: alcohol, tobacco,etc). Hemp industry may have well been surpressed by the paper/wood industry idk that documentary some kid said that was what happened.
The amount of people who smoke every day, if it was taxed, would not really make a major difference in our deficit. This is just classic high school kid mentality who really has no idea how the real world works. You want to make a difference with taxes , etc to help our generation? Don't vote for dumbass liberals. America has become a nation of want want want, with the mind set of doing as minimal work as possible in order to get it.
Detroit is a perfect example. A city with extremely low economic diversification, run by black liberals who were voted in on more than likely race, and mega unions which leech off of the city. People retire at 50 and expect to have full pay until they die. Legalizing weed there would do nothing but have everyone running around high off there ass all day, doing no work, and really not making a major difference at all.
