The Mexicans even take our illicit jobs. What’s a single suburban housewife to do? (Yes, that is a Weeds reference).

Of course, if we legalized marijuana, then we wouldn’t have armed bands of Mexican cartels invading the US and slash and burn farming our forests. Who knows, we might even make some tax revenue off it and create jobs. But enough crazy talk for one day.
