Odds and Ends

“bullet” (Arizona) Goddard Might Consider Legalized Marijuana

Attorney General Terry Goddard said Tuesday he might be willing to consider legalizing marijuana if a way can be found to control its distribution – and figure out who has been smoking it.
Goddard said marijuana sales make up 75 percent of the money that Mexican cartels use for other operations, including smuggling other drugs and fighting the Mexican army and police.
He said that makes fighting drug distribution here important to cut off that cash. He acknowledged those profits could be slashed if possession of marijuana were not a crime in Arizona.

Recognition of actual facts. Wow.

Drug Paraphernalia Tax Proposed

Rep. Darryl Rouson, D-St. Petersburg, has an interesting idea for raising revenues during these tough times.
House Bill 99 would add a “surtax of 5 percent” on items described as “drug paraphernalia” in Florida statute.
That includes not only “bongs” and “hypodermic syringes,” but also, according to state law, common items that can be fashioned into drug tools including “a balloon,” a “2-liter-type soda bottle” and “duct tape.”
