21. legalize it and tax the sale of it, as with alcohol
and then, hey, you've got a revenue stream for the state! and a productive agricultural enterprise! Current black market drug traffickers would probably be upset, but they'd get over it...maybe they could become happy, socially integrated entrepreneurs instead of worrying about getting arrested all the time.

And there would be all kinds of other potential benefits from this amazingly useful plant.

I think drug prohibition is stupid in general, but extra stupid when it comes to marijuana.
