It's too depressing to even talk about why weed it became illegal in the first place.
But what I'm trying to say is that legalising weed only in Canada doesn't solve the gang issue. Actually, legalising weed in Canada but not in the U.S. will cause the gangs to produce even more and sell it to the States.
