VANCOUVER, BC — Mayor Gregor Robertson and four former mayors of Vancouver, British Columbia are seeking legalization of marijuana, which they agree will probably reduce gang drug-related violent crime in their city, the Vancouver Sun reports.

The paper noted that the mayor tweeted in support of an open letter from the former mayors to politicians in the province last week.
