I was asked in the comments to address the war on drugs and the potential waste of money created by it. The implication is that somehow the government would save money if they legalized marijuana because that would eliminate some "war on drugs" spending.
You know what else would decrease War on Drugs spending? If people stopped doing drugs. We could also cut medicare costs by not covering lung cancer. Or we could cut medicare costs by encouraging people to quit smoking.
