The only solution is to decriminalize marijuana, tax it, and control it. Let the state(s) and the public get the benefits instead of the drug gangs and cartels. Until the profit is taken out of it the cartels will always be able to bribe people from any branch of government they choose. Everyone has a price, and they're making so much money smuggling marijuana that they can buy judges, prosecutors, Border Patrol agents, you name it.
They won't stop until there's no money in it for them.
The two major groups who do not want marijuana to be decriminalized, taxed and controlled are the drug gangs and law enforcement. The gangs know they'll only make these huge profits if marijuana stays illegal. Law enforcement agencies have seen their budgets grow enormously to fight the 'war on drugs'. Like any bureaucrats they don't want to see their empire reduced in size and budget.
We tried prohibiting alcohol consumption in 1919. During the 14 years until prohibition was repealed, organized crime in the U.S. went from nothing to a mega business with powerful political contacts and inroads into rackets, prostitution, gambling, and labor unions. It all grew from profits based on smuggling booze.
If drug gangs and cartels are allowed to continue to pocket these huge profits who knows how they'll use the money in the future? In Columbia they "own" major politicians, military leaders, judges, cops and even control what appears in the news on TV and in the papers.
Do not think it can't happen here. It has already begun.

Dear Mr/s Asinov,
Do you honestly believe that the US government (or those who control the politicians) do not already "own" the media, the military, the police etc.? Who owns Fox News and feeds you bulls**t everday? Who runs th war effort and why does every mlitary action last years if the the US is such a superpower as they tell you? Who makes money from such a war? Why do all the newspapers tell the same old rubbish day after day? Too late I say, the war against the machine has alread been lost. Unless we get rid of two of the greatest evils in our society, namely money and religion, we will never have peace in this world. Not in my lifetime.
