Hmm,that's really a tough call.
From what I see when I work in the hood and people I talk to,I don't really know if legalization would work or not.
For example,yes,it would drop the price of these drugs now that are illegal,,,but the FED will want it's cut too.
Yes,it would cut into king pin's pocket as well,thus,causing their profits to majorly drop in sales,due to these taxes.
That being said,after seeing what I see and hearing directly from those there,If legalized,they will just boost up production,lace it with something else,and sell under the table,thus,never stopping what the gov't tries to stop.
Bottom line,the gov't doesn't really want to stop all this trafficking,it is costly beyond belief,not only monetary ,but also with lives to be lost.(cops ! )
The local govt's have no money to do this,any cop who tries to stop drug lords gets killed-period. Seen this many times.
The local gov's could stop the problem,but they won't-this provides easy money to them from the Feds to fight it as little as possible.
So,will it be better or not,it's all a matter of opinion until true facts are presented of outcome from both attempts.
Here's how I see it,do what ever you want to do...................just don't involve it with work,driving,or in a bad family environment.
If you choose to do that,that's your choice---but don't bring others who want nothing to do with it into your problem
