BILLIONS, MADE LEGAL

While it is true that, overall, crime rates are down, street gangs
and organized crime groups, often fighting with rival groups or
gangs, continue to flourish (Canadians Get It: Crime Is On The
Decline - Jan. 26).

This year, gang violence in Vancouver and Montreal, for example, has
already brought shootings in the street and firebombs. This is, in
part, because people want products or services that are prohibited or
tightly regulated by government. An end to the prohibition of
marijuana, as suggested by the Liberals, would get at organized crime
and street gangs where it hurts - in their pocketbooks - since the
value of annual marijuana sales in Canada is measured in the billions.
