Diane Goldstein details all the ways in which legalizing marijuana is ultimately a good thing for law enforcement, and how in the end, marijuana related crimes are much less of an issue to deal with than say, rape or child abuse in this country. Many feel marijuana legalization is long over due, and should just be regulated like alcohol.
