It costs $4000-$6000- to process a normal arrest through our system. Marijuana raids involve an average of 6-35 state employees and cost us anywhere from $25,000-$1,000,000. Meanwhile tens of thousands of AACO residents visit the local liqour store or bar to buy hard drugs til their hearts content. Personally id rather see all of this wasted money used for our childrens schools, our roads, our parks, our bridges, or any number of other useful projects. This is our tax money being wasted literally by the truckload and what do we hope to accomplish? Marijuana is everywhere and its not going away. Its been a part of human culture for as long as weve been recording history. 1 raid = 1 lost school teacher.

Since the state House and Senate both passed the medical marijuana bill it has sat on governor O'Malley's desk in-signed while the states of Colorado and Washington vote to legalize it outright and benefit from the tax Revenue we have to ask ourselves how many more years will patients and residents of this state suffer from outdated laws and cowardice in our government?
