  1. The FBI estimates up to $100,000,000,000 (100 BILLION) PER YEAR from “ Black Market” recreational cannabis sales in America goes directly into the pockets of organized crime and criminals.

    $30,000,000,000 (30 BILLION) is lost in tax revenue.

    $15,000,000,000 (15 BILLION) is wasted on needless cannabis law enforcement.

    BILLIONS down the toilet every year due to prohibition laws that make no sense and destroy people’s lives daily. Cannabis is much safer than serial killer booze which is directly responsible for over 105,000 deaths annually or tobacco which kills over 480,000 in the United States alone according to data from the CDC.

    Legalize, regulate and TAX recreational cannabis!!
