Re: “Drug companies fight medical marijuana

Marijuana prohibitionists inadvertently introduce MJ users to harder drugs
People who advocate for the prohibition of marijuana and allow the current federal laws to exist are helping drug dealers up-sell more severe drugs and services. Any business that offers more than one type of product or service will up-sell their services when a customer is considering a purchase. It is a widely used form of marketing not only in legal business practice, but illegal business practice as well. Thus, all who oppose MJ legalization, are in fact helping introduce people to crack, meth, heroine, guns, chop shops, and any other form of illegal practice that may be offered by the black market.
I am not suggesting that legalizing MJ will put a stop to sales on the black market. The black market will always exist. But considering that marijuana is one of the most popular substances people purchase on the black market, and it is relatively benign, I think it is a safer alternative to legalize marijuana to reduce the number of people who are introduced to harder substances and more severe criminal activity.
