Keeping pot prohibited enriches organized criminals and promotes the kind 
of dispute-settlement style that leaves people dead. If you want to see the 
end of the violence, then support the end of the marijuana prohibition. Do 
you think pot consumers like supporting organized crime, or do you think 
we'd be happier not having to deal with the kind of black-market thugs that 
prohibition has brought us?
