This takes away power from organised gangs, the product will be safer to use if regulated. Police can use their resources a lot better for more serious issues like violent crime thus cutting costs. This will save the judicial system time and money. And if we have a system in place like in Colorado this will create a lot of revenue for our country and also a sector of small businesses. The revenue from those who distribute can be used on the nhs, schools, under developed areas & public sector.
