interdependence day

alright then. i have a new goal, focus, plan, topic for discussion.

it seems to me that our current situation regarding cannabis is quite stupid and even counter-productive. we should legalize cannabis, which will reduce the strain on our legal systems (police, courts and jails) and even bring in some much-needed tax revenues. i think it will also reduce the violence in the streets because gangs battle for turf in regard to the lucrative market of now-illegal drugs. this is true on both sides of the border: mexicans are killing each other to get the profits of this trade.
