Marijuana does not create crime! Period! What does create the crime, that some people associate with Marijuana? Prohibition. This is not rocket science people. A significant portion of our population wants access to Marijuana, they will get what they want, no matter how much money the government wastes on prohibition.
This lesson has been demonstrated time and again throughout human history. When government creates and enforces bad law, the population creates a black market to circumvent the law. The only people who benefit from the current state of affairs are the law enforcement agencies, those who build and run jails, politicians and the black marketers. Do you think that these people will give up the money and power that prohibition affords them. Not likely. Who suffers from this situation? Me you and the rest of the people who have their tax money wasted, and their freedom of choice trampled.
