Well, this should piss people off. You know those states that champion states rights? Those states who's citizen's hate the federal government and the taxes they impose on people? These states are most likely red states. In which their citizens bash progressive states for their spending. Guess what the liberal states are spending their money on- THE RED STATES! The state of Oklahoma which has some of the most anti marijuana laws and is the most conservative voting state doesn't pay federal taxes! Matter of fact, like the welfare recipients they hate, get $1.53 for every dollar they spend in federal taxes! Therefor, the money given to them by mostly progressive states is used in some degree to support their infrastructure. Alabama get's even more money. Sarah Palin's mental picture of Alaska has a rough we're not America, down with the fed, bearded mountain man exterior. When in reality they're more like an overfed welfare mom with another kid on the way. These are states that hate the titties but suck the most off the nipple's. What they receive for every dollar sent to the fed: North Dakota ($2.03) Mississippi ($1.84) Alaska ($1.82) West Virginia ($1.74) Montana ($1.64) Alabama ($1.61) South Dakota ($1.59) Arkansas ($1.53) The states that nurture the spoiled babies. New Jersey ($0.62) Connecticut ($0.64) Illinois ($0.77) Minnesota ($0.77) Massachusetts ($0.79) California ($0.81) New York ($0.81) Wisconsin ($0.82) Colorado ($0.79) Michigan ($0.82) Washington ($0.8 What really pisses me off, all ridiculous partisan political banter aside, is that many of the states that have strict marijuana laws are the same one's that use federal money from people in more marijuana friendly states to support their authoritarian anti mj policies all the while screaming "States rights!"
