How do you feel about the marijuana legalization movement?

I'm in favor of legalizing drugs. Legalization will neuter the drug cartels and potentially eliminate a lot of violent crime here and in Mexico as well as South America. Legalizing currently illicit drugs will allow for open treatment of addicts, it will eliminate the forbidden-fruit appeal of drugs, and it will raise large amounts of tax dollars. It's a win-win in many regards.

People are often concerned that legalization will encourage drug use, but I don't believe that's the case. The people who want to do it now, do it now. Those who don't, don't.

Ask me anything
