The reason Marijuana was outlawed was to get rid of the Mexicans coming across the border to escape the Mexican Revolution in the early 1900s. The Mexicans used marijuana to relax and as medication. To stem the flow, the U.S. made marijuana illegal, to discourage the influx of Mexicans. Nothing is ever as simple as it outwardly appears.

Another reason was after the repeal of Prohibition the liquor lobbyists worked to criminalize marijuana to boost alcohol sales

If the government can't keep drugs away from inmates who are locked in steel cages, surrounded by barbed wire, watched by armed guards, drug-tested, strip-searched, X-rayed, and videotaped - how can it possibly stop the flow of drugs to an entire nation?

There is nothing good about drug abuse, that being said I believe these strict marijuana laws have done much more harm than good, not to mention prison overcrowding. I know many times armed robbers and thieves, sometimes even murderers were let out early to make room for drug offenders. It seems outrageous to do such a thing

Do not suppose that abuses are eliminated by destroying the object which is abused. Men can go wrong with wine and women. Shall we then prohibit and abolish women?

Especially if the government is incentivized by pocketing the enormous profits from what they make illegal to fund black budget projects. Just consider the chart below, and look at the Opium production since the US invaded Afghanistan after 9-11.

NOTE: This video was produced for BoilingFrogsPost.com on October 14, 2011. It is being made available in its entirety here for the first time. Just as the British Empire was in part financed by their control of the opium trade through the British East India Company, so too has the CIA been found time after time to be at the heart of the modern international drug trade. From its very inception, the CIA has been embroiled in the murky underworld of drug trafficking. There are billions of dollars per year to be made in keeping the drug trade going, and it has long been established that Wall Street and the major American banks rely on drug money as a ready source of liquid capital. With those kinds of funds at stake, it is unsurprising to see a media-government-banking nexus develop around the status quo of a never-ending war on drugs - aided, abetted and facilitated by the modern-day British East India Company, the CIA. This is our EyeOpener Report by James Corbett presenting the history, documented facts, and cases on the CIA’s involvement and operations in the underworld of drug trafficking, from the Corsican Mafia in the 1940s through the 1980s Contras to the recent Zambada Niebla Case today.

Don't do drugs because if you do drugs you'll go to prison, and drugs are really expensive in prison.

Alcohol didn't cause the high crime rates of the '20s and '30s, Prohibition did. And drugs do not cause today's alarming crime rates, but drug prohibition does.
