The UK is starting to understand 

People in the UK will no longer be arrested for marijuana possession. They will get a warning and the drugs will be confiscated.

Imagine how much money this country would save if it would downgrade the seriousness of this 'offense': outrageously fewer convicts which would result is reducing the number of prisons and jails needed (also reducing overcrowding that is all too endemic), a lot less tax payer money being wasted on trials and imprisonment to punish drug offenders who often times are punished much harsher than much worse crimes (i.e.-murder).

I won't even break into the multiple uses of the plant that will help many facets of our lives (i.e.-hemp for paper, clothes, revitalization of soil, etc.)

I'm on a journey with no destination. The path is constantly changing direction but there are always adventures to be had. "Never" and "always" have left my lexicon.
