I absolutely agree that the "war" has been a failure... it is obvious. But the usage of drugs doesn't seem to be increasing - it seems to have mostly stabilized and oscillating...

But for the California Prop 19, it is not necessarily a good idea - while legalization of marijuana is an obvious ideal, the drug is illegal in the US (and Canada) under federal law. And the Obama administration quite clearly made it known they would continue to arrest, charge and etc people for marijuana trafficking and any other drug offence throughout the American territory. Since the federal law by nature supercedes any state law, the only visible outcome of a positive response to the question would have been a lot of confusion and wasted money in courts... it's the right idea, but really the wrong place.
So live this day that you can look every damn man straight in the eye and tell him to go to hell.
