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