Legalize Marijuana

Regarding the letter by Larry Greenlaw in the June 19 edition of the
Valley Voice, I agree with Mr. Greenlaw that marijuana should be
legalized. Under the current situation, most of the proceeds derived
from marijuana cultivation end up in the hands of Organized Crime.
Legalization would remove this source of revenue from criminal gangs
and could result in significant tax revenues which would reduce the
current tax burden on all of us. Mr. Greenlaw should be commended for
taking this stand.
