The illegal purchase of marijuana in the U.S. diverts billions to organized crime and provides the incentive to murder numerous innocent people in Mexico every year. Although we can't end the purchase of marijuana in the U.S., we CAN end the purchase of *cartel* marijuana by allowing our supermarkets to sell legally-grown marijuana to adults at prices too low for the drug dealers and cartels to match. When we legalize adult marijuana sales we'll eliminate the illegal marijuana trade and make our children and millions of other innocent people far safer.
