I am writing this letter in concern over the consideration of legalizing and taxing marijuana in Oregon. I must say that I am having trouble finding information regarding this subject but I know that the vote is taking place in 2010. The citizens of Central Oregon deserve to be informed of this so they can vote and express their opinion.

Legalizing and taxing marijuana would stimulate the economy as it is the number one cash crop already in the U.S. The plan states that marijuana would be sold by vendors to those old enough to drink. So I say it's time to legalize the herb! What the hell is wrong with puffin' a little smoke and feelin' good for a while? And not to mention marijuana can be used for other purposes.

Bottom line: if legalizing marijuana can save the dying economy in a huge way, produce fabrics, medicines and get you high without all the negative effects that every other drug has, why not give it a chance? There are bad drugs and good drugs (such as aspirin) and marijuana should be viewed as a good drug. I would really appreciate an article explaining the issue of marijuana legalization in Oregon because it's a very controversial subject that must be talked about.
