It is a grand irony that on the front page of the Helena Independent Record was an article on Montana medical marijuana caregiver Chris Williams facing years in federal prison for growing and selling the substance.
Meanwhile, on the back page of the sports section, a story ran about how some of the biggest banks in the world laundered billions of dollars for drug cartels and will get off with out anyone going to jail.
Why is it so hard for our government and justice system to understand if marijuana were legalized, controlled and taxed, this country could begin to solve so many of our drug crime problems.
This would put the drug cartels out of business, and put border patrol and drug crime agents into real jobs building roads and bridges. And maybe begin to pay off part of our $16 trillion debt.
