Though I am in favour of legalizing cannabis, it is worth mentioning that it won't solve completely the problem. Check for instance the Emerald Triangle in the US. Around 700-800 people going missing each year in such a small region (the biggest cannabis yield in the US) and less than a fifth of the cannabis producers requested an official permit for growing cannabis after it was legalized, meaning that still most of the cannabis is produced in illegal farms without governmental control nor taxation and employing illegal immigration.
I am a liberal. I am completely in favour of the legalization. But legislators and law enforcement should pay close attention to the potential disadvantages that legalization by itself cannot solved, based on proven examples such as the Emerald Triangle.
