GOOD IDEA –
Turning all those abandoned factories in the GTA into grow ops. Cause as of this time next year the federal government says marijuana is gonna be legal.
Even if you don’t smoke it, even if you don’t like it, you still like money. And that’s what that green sticky plant can do. It can make us money. Loads of it. Alcohol brings in over 4 billion dollars to Ontario. And I’m not saying Marijuana can bring in the same amount. But let’s just say it brings a quarter of the revenue. That’s an extra billion dollars to build roads, schools and hospitals right here in ONtario.
That new Gardiner interchange over where it meets the DVP, you could see the whole thing paid for in a few years rather than a few decades. Those issues we’re having where schools are having fifty kids rammed into a single classroom? Gone. Reasonable class sizes. You can do a lot of things when you have a few extra billions kicking around.
Talk to a cop, ask them how much money is spent harassing people who have an ounce or less of marijuana, the short answer? A LOT. How much administrative time is spent ensuring that sentences are passed. How much court time gets eaten up? How much money is spent incarcerating people who are growing a plant? All that money will be saved to be spent on better things.
And how much money will we be taking out of the pockets of organized crime, because people will be able to grow their own without fear of fines and harassment.
This is great news. No way around it.
