If you ask me the taxes on pot in Colorado are ridiculously low, Marijuana costs about 1/4 as much to get wasted as it does to get drunk, why should alcohol cost 4 times as much, and pot be cheaper than a can of soda pop to get high, if you want to do drugs and f up your life you should pay for it, not bitch about the measly 20% tax you are paying.
18 years ago I made one of the most important decisions of my life and entered a local Cambodian Buddhist Temple as a temple boy and, for only 3 weeks, an actual Therevada Buddhist monk. I am not a scholar, great meditator, or authority on Buddhism, but Buddhism is something I love from the Bottom of my heart. It has taught me sobriety, morality, peace, and very importantly that my suffering is optional, and doesn't have to run my life. I hope to give back what little I can to the Buddhist community that has so generously given me so much, sincerely former monk John
