Synthetic yes, paper no. You mean the timber industry that provides fiber to the paper mills. Hemp would help out the paper industry although the usage of paper is going down regardless.

What is moral about marijuana laws?

If you oppose this for moralistic purposes you are not for small government in any shape or form. Anyone who wants to legislate moral behavior is no better than Bloomberg wanting to ban sugar. You are cut from the same cloth as him.

Increasing personal freedom grows government? The ATF already exists... Adding weed to the list won't "grow" government.

So, there should be no criminal laws? Making murder, theft, or rape a crime is legislating morals. Sorry, I know this board is full of no-government, anarchist libertardians (most of which are registered and vote R), but most laws have a moral backing.

Increasing personal freedom would be to decriminalize...legalizing, regulating and taxing isn't necessarily small government initiative. Alabama will create a regulatory agency, probably run the "stores" like they do with the ABC, add staff to manage tax revenue, add state services for the "addicted", etc. In addition, local govs will probably create their own licensing departments. The primary goal to legalization, much like a lottery, is to grow government, not increase freedom.

How is marijuina less moral than alcohol? One causes millions of deaths a year because of its side effects and the other causes millions of deaths due to it being illegal. One causes liver failure and the other can help prevent the growth of cancer cells.

We should outlaw more things to shrink the government.
