    (Reuters) - Former Mexican President Vicente Fox took his crusade to legalize marijuana to San Francisco on Monday, joining pot advocates to urge the United States and his own country to decriminalize the sale and recreational use of cannabis.
    Fox met for three hours with the advocates, including Steve DeAngelo, the Oakland-based executive director of California's largest marijuana dispensary, and former Microsoft executive Jamen Shively, who hopes to create a Seattle-based pot brand now that Washington state has legalized recreational use.

    Are you against his proposal? Are you on the side of fighting a fake war on drugs? Also, do you really think our Government is not in bed with the Cartels?

    They may as well legalize and tax pot... people are going to use it no matter what, and at least there would be some much needed tax income as well as a weakening of the cartel stranglehold on the market.

    Dude seriously? How does 99% of drugs get through? The cartels make 100 million dollars a week, no one is getting paid? There is a Cartel leader "Chapo Guzman" Hiding in plain sight in Mexico yet we cant find him? You tell me Sherlock.
