Can someone explain to me why Marijuana is illegal in many countries including the United States?

I'm not looking for the, "because the law says so..." kind of answer. I am looking for root reasons. In the US a few days ago we nearly experienced a shut down in government over budget issues. We spend billions every year in the US dealing with marijuana, is it worth it?
