That's probably true since the state government can't run anything else properly.

Makes a lotta sense when you think about it, really. And not even necessarily related to organized crime.

Prisons are big business. Take away a large part of your prison population and the need for more prisons and the money associated with 'em goes away.

Marijuana — it’s one of the primary reasons why California experienced a stunning 20 percent drop in juvenile arrests in just one year, between 2010 and 2011, according to provocative new research.


The San Francisco-based Center on Juvenile & Criminal Justice (CJCJ) recently released a policy briefing with an analysis of arrest data collected by the California Department of Justice’s Criminal Justice Statistics Center. The briefing, “California Youth Crime Plunges to All-Time Low,” identifies a new state marijuana decriminalization law that applies to juveniles, not just adults, as the driving force behind the plummeting arrest totals.


After the new pot law went into effect in January 2011, simple marijuana possession arrests of California juveniles fell from 14,991 in 2010 to 5,831 in 2011, a 61 percent difference, the report by CJCJ senior research fellow Mike Males found.



“Arrests for youths for the largest single drug category, marijuana, fell by 9,000 to a level not seen since before the 1980s implementation of the ‘war on drugs,’ ” Males wrote in the report, released in October.

Oregon makes tons of money off MMJ. And we don't even sell pot, just licences to grow it:

[link to www.thelundreport.org]

July 27, 2012 -- When the state legislature raised the annual fee for Oregon Medical Marijuana Program cards from $100 to $200, it did so in hopes that public health coffers would increase accordingly: based on budget numbers released by Kathleen Vidoloff of the Oregon Health Authority, the state's budget for the 2011-13 biennium anticipates a total of $12 million in revenue from the program – with $5.3 million supporting the marijuana program and $6.7 million supporting other public health programs

That is license fees, only. A dispensary system would make a billion or more, easy.
