It was disappointing to hear Prime Minister Stephen Harper say he 
would not consider legalizing marijuana. He offered no meaningful 
justification for his position, simply stating "drugs are bad," while 
simultaneously promising a crackdown on drugs, guns and gangs. It 
clearly hasn't dawned on Harper that the surest way to crack down on 
gangs is to legalize drugs, cutting off their main source of revenue. 
Until then, expect the violence to continue.
