    What a complete and total WASTE of TAXPAYER MONEY and resources. Prohibition creates the black market while doing nothing to address supply and demand, and not stopping anything; it is on the other hand quite efficient at filling prisons and clogging the court system, but it hasn’t stopped anyone from actually acquiring cannabis (or actual drugs). Prohibition actually creates a more dangerous environment by its association with the black market, if you legalize and regulate you eliminate the criminal underground, and you control the access, i.e. less access by minors, etc. (dispensaries ask for ID, dealers ‘t!)
    It’s time to legalize cannabis, and decriminalize hard drugs, give people that have addiction issues with hard drugs the medical and mental health treatment that they need rather than locking up non-violent ‘criminals’ for the crime of using a natural, non-toxic, non-addictive plant!

    Colorado Department of Public Safety report 04/21/2016
    Marijuana arrests way down
    Teen use has dropped slightly
    DUI rates increased only 1%
    Hospital admission rates due to cannabis consumption up. No injuries or death, they just sent them home after the paranoia wears off. No harm.
    It’s more obvious than ever that legalization is the only thing that makes sense.
