Decriminalize pot, win election

BC has the power to decriminalize marijuana. Marijuana is one of the most useful plants on earth.

It dulls pain, plus 2,000 other uses, without the side effects of prescription drugs, which are the number one killer of our society today, above cancer and heart disease.

The legalization of marijuana would allow BC to collect taxes that would cover our total health care system as well as decrease the criminal element in our province.

I believe the Liberals or NDP would win the election by including the legalization of marijuana as a major part of their platform but I find politicians clever people lacking intelligence. What is wrong with this picture?
