You make it sound like someone just needs to flip a switch and do away with violent drug gangs. Yet there's been a multi-billion dollar "war on drugs" and they're stronger than ever.

News for you: legalization will kill cartels all by itself. Legalization of booze killed prohibition bootleggers. Legalization of corporate ownership of casinos in Nevada killed mob-run gambling. It's simple and painless.

Think what legalization of immigration might accomplish.

Well - maybe that's why they stopped this trafficking operation with the drug filled buses.

Now that drugs are quite legal in Colorado, they don't need the cartels running drugs up -- so you should be quite happy they stopped these cartel clowns.

Drugs are not "quite legal" in Colorado.

But no, it'd still be better to legalize on a federal level rather than desperately attempting enforcement at taxpayer expense. Do you think this arrest, for example, will have any actual effect?

Only for medical uses and growing is strictly limited. Obviously there is still demand that isn't being met through the Colorado legislation.

what? This really makes no sense at all. So in your mind "they" stopped this bus because now "they" have legal weed and "they" don't need the illegal weed anymore?

I'm not quite sure you understand how A) the weed market or B) law enforcement actually work.

Be thankful if that's all you get with your 'weed' from Mexico.

Years of vegetable growing with irrigation from sewage ponds and the use of carcinogenic fertilizers banned in the rest of the world would be another consideration altogether before I'd smoke the stuff.

Sounds like we should legalize it so it can be regulated socially and legally.
