Legalize Cannabis/Marijuana

Im not saying let's let everyone just run wild and smoke crazy, I'm saying we put restrictions on it, like alcohol has. The government taxes it, sells it, possibly allow civilians to apply for license to grow and sell it and controls it. Not only will it create jobs, it will help stimulate the economy in a way many didn't think was possible. As of the time I am writing this, at 4:52 CST on 7/21/2011 we have spent $22,799,993,774 ...more »

Inefficiency in the name of safety

Over the past two field seasons, many of the forests in Region 5, including the Mendocino NF have implemented a "buddy system" out of concern for illegal grow operations occuring on the forest. The system creates an enormous burden on some of the most important individuals on the forest, those who prepare and execute contracts to meet the ecosystem management goals. These goals were not met last fiscal year, and will ...more »

End the war on drugs

It would also alleviate the astronomical spending necessary for enforcement and the subsequent incarceration of violations and violators of respective policies ...more »
