Let the lemmings do whatever they want, leave us alone. Libertarianism. Mmmmmmm.
I thought you opposed my opinion on letting people have guns? If you want to be a Libertarian you have to oppose prohibition, and that includes guns.
But not hand grenades and rocket launchers. Wink

The "market" is created by people, not the government. So, if anyone can grow it, we'll have a new economy for the strong drug as opposed to the "over-the-counter" weak drug (if that made any sense).
It didn't make sense. I'm assuming when you refer to this "more dangerous" "street-level" substance you mean more potent pot with higher THC levels.

To say that's more dangerous is like saying a litre of water is more dangerous than a cup. It's more potent, but that means the average stoner just uses less. Do you drink a bottle of whiskey like you drink a bottle of wine?

You would have an increase in immigration so that the drug can be trafficked back to another country at a higher cost, specifically Mexico. This is just a thought though, hence "this is a long shot."
Long shot is an understatement.

You won't see anyone going out of their way to smuggle marijuana into Mexico. You really think California legalizing pot would completely reverse the drug trade? Seeing how nobody in their right mind would want Mexican ditchweed when there is a legal, high-grade American alternative available, there would be an ABUNDANCE of weed available to anyone in Mexico who wanted it.
