Dear Editor,

Actually, its marijuana prohibition that alters the economy [Pot alters 
economy, June 6 Letters to the Editor, Langley Advance News].

If marijuana were legal, it would be worth what other easy-to-grow weeds 
are worth. Very little.

By insisting that marijuana remain a criminalized product, our governments 
are squandering hundreds of billions dollars in potential tax revenue.

Now marijuana is untaxed, unregulated, and controlled by criminal gangs. 
It's time to end this insanity.
