The color green is what defines the planet this day in age. Money passages its murky way in and out of consumer's and producer's hands like the tide of an active beach. Green lights provide traffic with half of a frequent flow of normality and order system. Even the literal hue of the planet Earth is green, save for the blue oceans, due to the curtains of foliage which seems to blanket the landscape generously.

Why give money to the scum of the earth when it can go to the government to aid in the betterment of the country .yeah? This would not only help replenish lost revenues, additionally, taxation of marijuana would aid in the allocations of government surpluses because there would be more money to spend on public relief to programs such as Social Security and the growing number of unemployment.
