Legalizing marijuana is a very, very bad idea for many reasons.
Least of which would be the drug war between the American growers and the Mexican drug lords as they fight for control of the marijuana trade in the United States.
Legalize marijuana and you'll instantly bring all the Mexican drug violence into the United States.
Come on are the cartels here now battling big pharma companies who literally push legal heroin on doctors, who then push it on patients. I know away too many people hooked on heroin(oxycodone, fentanyl, morphine-thy are litterally legal heroin) and it sometimes hits too c,lose to home.
This is a major epidemic, I know its hurting the cartels sales of street heroin , I don't see them killing off pharmaceutical companys
