    Stop persecuting pot smokers for revenue generation. Look at the positive changes Colorado has wrought with their legalization? They have increased tax revenue and kept countless people out of the prison industrial complex for non-violent drug crimes. Get the mormon gestapo out of the legislation business (this is NOT a theocracy, neither the State or the nation). Look at the problem with smuggling? If pot is legal, you have fewer drug smugglers running through the State, which protects lives and safety. Law enforcement can focus on the harmful substances like pills, heroin and meth, which are the real problem in Utah.
