Late last year, the realization that universal health care would be passed, and so the goals of this website were under reevaluation. While the authors of this site firmly believe that the legalization of marijuana could positively contribute the the overall benefit and well being of the general population, it is also evident that the two positions - universal health care and the legalization of marijuana - will not merge. This does not dampen the call for legalization. While health care legislation has taken a surprising turn in recent months since December 24th, 2009, the debate still continues, and so shall this website.
With that being said, I would like to address the adjusted goal of this website. While the combination of health care reform and marijuana reform seems to be far fetched, I still strongly believe that any reduction in restrictions on the drug should be made carefully, and any benefits should be closely guarded, as to not allow state and federal governments to miss out on any possible advantage. For this reason, the call for fiscal responsibility still stands, as well as the protection of government resources to help prevent monetary crises, such as what states are currently experiencing.
