Alcohol prohibition didn't work. Marijuana prohibition isn't working.
People who choose to engage in substance abuse are going to do so
whether or not millions of dollars are spent on law enforcement or
collected in taxes from retail sales of marijuana.

Why not legalize marijuana and drive the black market marijuana
suppliers out of business, picking up a much needed source of revenue
at the same time? In Utah, the infrastructure is already in place: the
state liquor stores.
