Sheriff Baca says pot dispensaries are a crime target. 'More reason to legalize' marijuana, readers respond

In the wake of a triple murder in West Hollywood stemming from a large drug deal gone bad over a large quantity of medical marijuana, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca stated this week that the industry has been taken over by drug dealers, thus the growing violence.
"The medicinal marijuana program that voters authorized years ago has been hijacked by underground drug-dealing criminals who are resorting to violence in order to control their piece of the action," Baca said during a news conference Wednesday. "There are predators armed and seeking easy dollars in sales of marijuana."
Over 70 readers of the article commented on the Times story, most of them like Kennet expressed the feeling, "More reason to legalize it!"
