    Sorry Tim, but Gary is correct about Mexico being a major supplier and importer of marijuana into the U.S., but you are also correct about the other drugs and illegal immigrants as well.

    Why not allow medical marijuana? We spend way too much money trying to enforce the laws, and we don’t even come close in stopping it. Instead, we make criminals out of people who are harming no one, except those killed in gang related crimes trying to profit from its sales or importation. Of course, most Americans are cold and feel very little sympathy for those killed, viewing it as just another loser killed, especially when it occurs in Mexico to Mexicans. The problem with that, is it is often innocent people that are caught in the cross fire or are killed by mistake.

    Having chronic pain, I’m on high levels of opiates and will probably be for them for rest of my life. If marijuana works as well as the opiates, and is not addictive like opiates, I would much rather be on marijuana instead of the opiates.

    Sorry Tim, but Mexico is one of the major suppliers of marijuana into the U.S. But you are also correct about the other drugs such as cocaine and heroin, as well as illegals too.

    Gary, people bringing drugs through the border are not bringing in marijuana, they are brining in cocaine, heroin, and illegals.

    Should be complettly decriminalized, I could give 20 reasons to 1 why it should be. One being it would eliminate the black market for it.cut down on the crimes along the border.
