Mayor’s getting ideas

Some good ones.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Mayor Larry Campbell has proposed legalizing and taxing marijuana sales … to raise money for treatment of the effects of more dangerous drugs. …

Campbell said regulation should be similar to that of tobacco and alcohol, citing the example of Amsterdam, where cultivation and sales of marijuana are legal within certain regulations.

Studies indicate fewer residents of the Netherlands than, for example, Americans, have tried marijuana, and cannabis use among Dutch schoolchildren has fallen, he said.

“The conclusion is pretty clear,” he said. “Legal, regulated sale of marijuana may actually produce less consumption.”

Looks like that new study I’ve been talking about is getting around.
