Marijuana is scheduled that high because the DEA has to ensure the business climate in the US is always as profitable for the drug cartels as possible, in other words, they have to keep the cartel bosses happy and content.

Without the steady flow of drugs into the US, there would be no drug war to fight.

An interesting way to look at this...those that are against legalization of any drugs, the drug cartels have this same opinion, they do not want drugs to be legalized either.

I would think this fact alone would be enough for opponents of legalization to realize their stand on the drug war is not what it should be....its pretty scary when drug cartels and good moral citizens share the same opinion on policy!!
