Governments don't want us living too long, if we do we will cost too much in pensions and hospital care.

That's what I've always read about Amsterdam and other places. Part of the sales job for legalized pot is that the bad guys who sell the illegal pot and other drugs will be completely undercut and will disappear along with all of their other misc criminal activities.
But they don't.
