They are not but my point was legalization has been a talking point for libertarians far longer than it has been for liberals and conservatives. Now both parties seem to be in favor of it because the Dems say grow it and tax it and the GOP says stop wasting money fighting it. Either way, I hope it works out well and the projected figures are returned. There are a lot of influential organizations just waiting to pounce on a single mishap.
