Can we please have statistics as to how many PHARMACIES were held up in the last year? PROHIBITION artificially inflates the price and makes it more valuable than it should be.(It's a plant.) This is a smear piece to make medical marijuana seem "dangerous" and instead does a good job of pointing out the difficulties of an artificially inflated price caused by a failed policy of prohibition. Yes, street violence would fall as well if people weren't fighting over the drugs and "turf." How many beer distributors are shooting each other on the streets and robbing each other? They have a legal means to handle any disputes- it's called a court of law! Same could happen for cannabis. We just have to make such a decision as a Nation.

Oakland, CA is now referred to as "Oaksterdam" and the revival of the once violence-plagued city has been noted by everyone, including their own city council (and it is taxed and regulated.) Complex problem, simple solution.
