My sincere condolences to the deceased’s friends and family. This event graphically exemplifies how unnecessary death is occurring on the streets of our Country. The failed policy of the drug war must be revised. Ask yourself this question… Did the drugs cause death in this case or was it drug prohibition laws that brought on death? The year alcohol prohibition ended violent crime fell by 65%. Al Capone didn't kill people because he was drunk, he killed people that got between him and his drug money. Prohibition fuels an un-regulated, un-taxed illegal market. End the prohibition and replace it with drug regulation and honest education. Drug addiction should be addressed as a health issue not a crime. There has only been one successful anti-drug campaign, it targeted tobacco. Almost half of all smokers stopped using that highly addictive drug and no one went to jail or got hurt or killed. IT CAME ABOUT THROUGH EDUCATION NOT A WAR ON TOBACCO USERS. Regulating drugs is the only sensible answer to ending the multitude of harmful consequences caused by the failed policies of drug prohibition and the drug war. Where there is a demand and the ability to pay the price there will always be a supply. If we remove the ability to profit from illegal drug sales we remove a long list of problems.

Exactly right, the violence and harm come from the failed Drug laws. If people were allowed to grow their own Cannabis there would be NO market for it.
