I thought that this was pretty hilarious, except that these people work for the government:
In November 2002 the Office of National Drug Control Policy circulated an "open letter to America's prosecutors" spelling out the administration's views. "Marijuana is addictive," the letter asserted. "Marijuana and violence are linked . . . no drug matches the threat posed by marijuana."

Marijuana is addictive? Yes, but only in the sense that *anything* is addictive to someone.

Marijuana and violence are linked? Give me a break. How in the world did they link this? Users of marijuana are incredibly passive. The only way I could see marijuana and violence being linked is as a result of it being illegal, and this would be the result of suppliers becoming violent to protect their turf.

No drug matches the threat posed by marijuana? My opinion is the opposite. The legalization of this drug stands to benefit society more than any other.
