  • The cartels would be poorer, our public lands cleaner, and our children safer if we implemented a Personal Use and Cultivation Permit: $100 per year for a dozen plants. Split the proceeds between the States and the Fed.
    It’s time to put the cartels out of business.
    It’s time to let ordinary Americans grow a little marijuana in their own back yards.
