The sad thing is that the payoffs can be so big that it entices the law enforcement to get a piece of the pie. It also is sad because casual users don't really care about how they are paying for this violence and they don't care about their health and the costs to the health system. Of course now we have national medical care so they don't have too worry about their care and possibly even their supplier of pot.
A really great argument for making pot legal.
Sorry, but your incorrect about pot being bad for your health. Studies say the exact opposite.
