Cannabis (marijuana) prohibition is one of North America's worst 
policy failures in history (Canada's Pot Luck, Jan. 6, 2014), there's 
no legitimate reason for Canada to continue it for another day.

Cannabis prohibition produces, underground markets, cartels, 
increased hard drug addiction rates, contempt for drug laws, eroded 
constitutional rights, loss of freedom, escalated prison populations, 
corrupt politicians, race discrimination, trillions of dollars in 
wasted taxes and the list is growing faster than the plant itself. 
The sooner Canada ends cannabis prohibition the sooner the sky will 
stop falling in.

A sane argument to continue cannabis prohibition doesn't exist.
