Fundamentally I believe that the drug wars have been a failure. The way we treat Marijuana now is similar to how we treated alcohol during the prohibition, and that led to an uncontrollable black market.
We must regulate the market of marijuana so we can restrict sales, similar to alcohol, to adults over 21. With no regulation currently in place it is easier for our kids to get their hands on hard drugs than alcohol - this makes no sense!
Criminalizing marijuana has led to the United States having 25% of the worlds prison population, while our population only represents 5% of the global population. We must do something to stop this trend now!
