Thoughts on how to fix drug trafficking

in

Twenty states and the District of Columbia have passed medical marijuana laws legalizing the use and production of medical marijuana for qualifying patients under state law. Some states have legalized marijuana for public use with across the counter purchases.
Approximately 50 years ago, Switzerland legalized drugs. The result was the drug users took over all public facilities like parks and swimming pools. Used needles were strewn everywhere on lawns, sidewalks and over flowing trashcans. My wife and I witnessed that mess in Lucerne, Switzerland, in the early 1960s.

Prepping for the ‘real world’

Irby, Marna.jpg

My stay in my palace will be over on Friday, so I need to get ready for the real world, I guess. I can’t say it hasn’t been fun and I’ve loved so many of the new and interesting people I have met here.
