•  Protect the lives of police officers who must enforce ineffective marijuana prohibition laws
•  Reduce access to marijuana by teens by taking marijuana out of the underground market, putting it behind the counter, and instituting strict age-limits
•  Restore mutual respect and good relations between law enforcement and communities bearing the brunt of the current marijuana laws
