420 bail out in California, how legalizing marijuana could help close the budget gap | Examiner.com

Marijuana has not always been known as a class one dangerous narcotic.  In fact at one time the plant  was the third largest agricultural crop grown in North America, even some of our founding fathers were advocates.  George Washington cultivated and smoked medical-grade marijuana on his farm. Some believe he smoked the plant to ease his chronic tooth pain.  Thomas Jefferson too cultivated and smoked the plant, even drafting our Declaration of Independence on paper made from hemp fibers.  Benjamin Franklin cultivated the industrial form of the plant and started the first American paper mill, making paper exclusively from hemp.

It is SO time to bring back legal hemp farming. SO time. Fantastic assessment of the current situation and why legalization would be an improvement.
