I'm not sure where certain persons get their information in Las Vegas, but 
I can assure you that I'm am not a Colombian cartel member, I'm from Ohio. 
While the Marijuana Policy Project may have a few members from Columbus 
Ohio, I seriously doubt that Colombian cartel members have decided that 
they make too much money and now want to share their revenues via taxation 
with the state of Nevada.

No sir, there are two types of people who favor prohibition of marijuana, 
those who profit from its prohibition and those who profit from it's 
prohibition, the cartels, and the cops. Both groups of people stand to lose 
a great deal when Nevadans vote to evict the cartels, reassign the police, 
and regulate the sale and possession of marijuana.

It's quite simple really, prohibition creates cartels, regulation 
eliminates them, those who lack accurate knowledge on the subject should 
check the history books under alcohol prohibition and the cartels it 
created during the 1920s.
