Legalize all you want. You cannot control the Cartels. I predict they will retaliate against retailers. Violent crime will rise. That coupled with gun control. Not a good mix.

LOL. You really think the Cartels are not going to give up a Billion dollar piece of pie that is Colorado?
They have been there for years. Coupled with stricter gun control laws, good luck protecting yourself

LOL - sounds like the plot of a sub B grade movie. The ATTACK OF THE ZOMBIE MARY JANE CARTELS! Run, everybody RUN!! Maybe legalization will make Colorado a big Hollywood destination.

Cartels aren't out of business yet, if only because they compete with lower prices since they don't have to hand over a cut in taxes. Unless/until all people who are unwilling to pay the higher shop prices manage to grow their own, there will be a niche in the market for the underground dealers.

And even if that dried up, they'd just send their shipments to the other 49 states in the country where it's still illegal. I don't see them waging violent war against shops, per se...armed robberies perhaps, though. And I could envision cartels trying to pressure and bribe legislators to make it illegal again.
