1. I’m sure it won’t be safe immediately, but if you want the answer, it’s yes… just look at the violence that one happened around the Canadian border cities during alcohol prohibition and note that we don’t have the Budweiser gang doing driveby shootings these days.

  2. $113 billion is spent on marijuana every year in the U.S., and because of the federal prohibition *every* dollar of it goes straight into the hands of criminals. Far from preventing people from using marijuana, the prohibition instead creates zero legal supply amid massive and unrelenting demand.

    According to the ONDCP, at least sixty percent of Mexican drug cartel money comes from selling marijuana in the U.S., they protect this revenue by brutally torturing, murdering and dismembering countless innocent people.

    If we can STOP people using marijuana then we need to do so NOW, but if we can’t then we need to legalize the production and sale of marijuana to adults with after-tax prices set too low for the cartels to match. One way or the other, we have to force the cartels out of the marijuana market and eliminate their highly lucrative marijuana incomes – no business can withstand the loss of sixty percent of its revenue!

    To date, the cartels have amassed more than 100,000 “foot soldiers” and operate in 230 U.S. cities, and Arizona police are now conceding that parts of their state are under cartel control. The longer the cartels are allowed to exploit the prohibition the more powerful they’re going to get and the more our own personal security will be put in jeopardy.

    1. You can’t stop it, no sudden new crackdown terror would survive the public backlash, not to mention that’s already a rampant adversary in these violent cartel security teams.

      Legalize legalize legalize.

      End the police madness, just fucking legalize our freedoms.

  3. If they could stop people from using marijuana, it would’ve happened by now. They’ve tried everything and nothing works. The only clear answer is full and total legalization.

    BTW, this is the best thing America could do to support the forces of order and liberty in Mexico. Sending the Mexican government a few billion dollars worth of helicopters and infrared goggles won’t do shit when we’re sending their opponents hundreds of billions every year.

    Obama, in all likelihood, won’t try to stop California from legalizing it if this passes. God, I hope it passes.

  4. Well first off, I hate to break it to you, but your not Mexican, your American, of Latino/Mexican decent. Ask a true Mexican, they won’t say your Mexican, but Chicano.

    As far as your question…yes. It would have had a huge impact on the way the drug cartels did business. Hopefully they would have started to kill each other off when the money started running out. I would imagine it would get safer in Mexico as a result.
