    It should be legalized and taxed. This would cut down on crimes like this. It would help the US tax debt. It has so many helpful property in medical research, making paper to help save trees, can be used to make clothes. And would make the crime rates go down. there is nothing bad about pot. there are no related death linked to pot. its just big tabacco and big alchol company keeping it illegal to make more money for the selves. meanwhile people die everyday from their products. something is very wrong with that. these people would like to have more money in there pockets than having peoples live.
