I think Texas.

They're desperately clinging onto a failed "war on drugs" as though stiffer punishments for minor drug offences is in some way going to lessen the impact of crime, it's not. I do however think that pot offences down there do need to be looked at more seriously than up here. In Canada, your weed is likely grown in someone's basement and changes hands only a few times with relatively peaceful criminals. Down there that "harmless" weed is fueling a real war south of the border, I think the people smoking it and thinking nothing of it need to accept some responsibility for that violence.

Real solution? Legalize it, coke too!

So on the one hand, these drugs are fueling a drug war south of the border.

On the other hand, legalize it?

How does that make sense? Don't you think the cartels will fight for the "drug" contracts then and for the land to make the cocaine? What did you think they were fighting over?

Or is Molson/Coors going to grow cocaine for us??

Absolutely if it becomes legal big business will hop on-board and profit off it. You'd be naive to think they wouldn't for fear of tarnishing their reputations. Profit is profit, and guaranteed someone will be willing to grow pot/poppies/coca in North America once it becomes legal.

No the cartels are not going to get any business once it becomes legal. How much tobacco or barely is being grown by organized crime groups?

Sometimes I think you argue just for the sake of it.

man if that was the case 1/2 of Jane and Finch people be in jail.....the cops even told me if you carry less than so many grams the worst thing is they would ask you to open the bag and dump it on the ground,of course they can also arrest you but the other cops would laugh at you and the judge would definitely throw the case out or small fine.

Yep, Yep, those drugs will be made and distributed for free or very close to free. They will be sold in super markets at 1/10th the price of it's current street value! It's any wonder how the government will tax that product, or make any money from it at all.

I never said that, I simply said values would decrease and crime would subside. History tells us this is true, claim what you'd like.

I agree with this, yet I have a problem with legalizing drugs like cocaine and heroin. It's a slippery slope. Not to say that everybody will indulge, but those drugs (not talking about weed here) are WAY more addictive than alcohol, and can really fock up someone's life. When things are legalized, it sends a general message that they are not that bad for you. So more people might try them, leading to more sketch bags running around. We already have enough! This is probably a huge part of why governments don't want to legalize that shit.

Um...yes, because when legal it's value is going to decrease below what it is worth when the only way to currently get it is illegally ($200ish/oz).

Buy a bmw yet...or still just trolling?
