Want to fix the Economy? Legalize (and tax) Pot. And legalize Gay Marriage.
I’m serious. You wanna fix the economy, Republicrats? Then let’s kill the war on (soft) drugs and tax the hell out of ’em, instead. Less jail, less crime, more taxes.
As for gay marriage, the civil rights issue of our time, The Christian Science Monitor did a good piece on what it would add to our economy today, if legalized in all 50 states. In the private sector alone, it’d mean an additional $18 million, and that’s not counting taxes or ancillary expenses like travel, home purchases, anything. Just the weddings alone.
