  1. That makes me want to cry! The only reason they don’t legalize marijuana is because they haven’t found a way to tax it for everyone and keep people from growing their own plants. This is a bunch of B.S. My love goes out to the souls of those innocent animals that were brutally slaughterd!!!! STOP THE VIOLENCE AND THERE WILL BE NO ISSUE!!!!!!
