Poll: Are all illegal drug users responsible for drug gang violence? [View all]

More than a few posts over the past week hold non-criminal gun owners responsible for
enabling criminal use of guns.

I was reminded of this by my memories of a certain Canadian ex-DUer that would
occasionally remind us that the Canadian wholesale cannabis business is dominated
by violent biker gangs, so those who chose 'hydro' instead of Mexican for ethical reasons
(as opposed to taste) were only fooling themselves.
Said ex-DUer was/is also virulently antigun.

(Note: this does NOT include those who use it for medical reasons and get their supplies
from legal dispensaries)

Yes- but not if they grow their own cannabis, and strictly limit themselves to the same.
