Don't jail drug offenders, but jail 'employers'? Both are just as detrimental to society as the other. Plus, legalizing weed isn't going to cause a huge pile of money to appear because all the problems of weed go away. Weed will always cost us a fuckton because people can't take care of themselves.
Not employers, politicians. Politicians make laws that allow the illegals to exist within a system not built for them. (And despite the lies, not paid for by them.)
The point is to eliminate the appeal for people to come here and NOT work (IE: Sit around, collect checks, and vote Democrat). I honestly couldn't give a shit about people coming here to actually work, but if they're staying we need to force them to seek citizenship and join our society, not live here without the need for citizenship, the language, following the laws, etc.
You'd be surprised at how much money legalizing weed would save. Not just from the sale and taxation, of it or the elimination of law enforcement budgets and cost of crime related to it, but do you have idea how much it costs to house marijuana offenders? You know why prohibition hasn't been attempted again? Until you ban alcohol, the argument for banning weed doesn't hold water.

I've thought about that as well. Just fucking invade and call it a day.
