WRONG

Canada came NO WHERE CLOSE to legalizing Marijuana. We came close to decriminalizing it yes, but it still would be illegal. No crime rap sheet, just a fine. I think Canada will legalize it one day, hell Amsterdam has a lower crime rate than the states by...hm....12 times lower?


Also, Marijuana isn't a gateway drug. It's been proven that something along the lines of 2% of all users have moved on to Harder drugs. Also, we'd be cutting off organized crimes main source of profit.

British Columbia alone, makes $6 Billion a year JUST on Marijuana.

The drug industry/organized crime makes 600 billion a year. I think we should turn that into government money.
