But extend your lack of logic. Jewelry sales are legal, yet people still steal and sell jewelry. Cars are legal to purchase, yet people still steal cars and resell them, and yes...marijuana is valuable so someone will be inclined to steal it. Just like they rob legal pharmacies today and steal pain pills.
Cartels won't wilt at all because the government has no intention of allowing people to buy what they want free of government intervention. Guess what? Cigarettes have a black market too and do you know why? The government.

No argument here, though a person could say the same of tobacco, opium, and cocaine, which have much more potential to do harm.I mean the act of making it illegal is nonsense. Sorry, I forgot a word. Making a plant illegal to grow, import, or sell is nonsensical since it comes from the earth and is nothing but part of the world in which we live. If we can't even accept all plants as part of life we might as well just give up on life as we are obviously not fit for it.
I tend to believe prohibition is counter-productive in those cases too, but marijuana is an extreme example of what government should not be blowing resources on.
