Who thinks it's time for TED to get behind the marijuana legalization movement?

Marijuana prohibition has been an utter failure. You know it, I know it, and I have to assume TED knows it. From a financial and social perspective, there isn't a better time to drop the 72 years of pointless social stigma attached to this plant and legalize it!

Perhaps a few talks from smart people demonstrating how insanely rational it is to end this war at a highly regarded conference such as TED would be enough to convince DC. Your thoughts?
