Will rehab programs be paid for by taxes from the sale of marijuana or will it be treated more broadly under public health??

    How are these issues handled before?

    Why would they be handled differently?

    oh yeah...well....
    Always strive to never let your irresponsibility become someone else's responsibility
    once we worry more about our obligations and responsbilities and less about our rights and privileges the better things will be

    basically my concern is this...we already have vices that people use that often require taxpayer money to clean up the mess they cause...maily booze and tobacco. my personal thought is i should not have to pay for the damage for your bad habits. since we are legalizing a potential bad habit i am curious what mechanism is in place to deal with that?

    where do you draw the line on "damage" caused by your bad habits?

    tobacco? alcohol? fatty foods? pepsi?

    More money is wasted in trying to police/enforce MJ laws than will be spent dealing w/MJ 'Addiction'... since MJ is much less addictive than almost all other legal & illegal drugs of abuse... (does that help answer your question, or is it rhetorical ???)

    no argument there. just wondering what mechanisms are in place to deal with it. to answer green grin boy i would draw the line at food. you have to eat but you dont have to smoke or drink booze. it is an arbitrary line to be sure but that is where mine would be
