Arnold: Let’s Debate Legalizing Pot, Not That I’m For It, Mind You

Calfornia Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger says it’s time to debate legalalizing marijuana.  But he also says he’s not supporting the idea;  just the debate about the idea. Talk about straddling a political fence.  But at least he wants the debate.

Democratic state Assemblyman Tom Ammiano says legalizing marijuana for adults over age 21 and taxing it at $50 per ounce would bring the state more than $1 billion a year. He has a bill in the Legislature but has delayed seeking approval until next year.

Now, if they’d legalize prostitution as well, and both marijuana and prostitution were legal in every state, maybe tax rates would go down.
