Exactly....and further saturate that market. Legalization of marijuana will not increase rates of meth use.

Users smoke marijuana because they like the effects.
Dealers sell marijuana because it is illegal, and generates enormous profits.

Thus, there will be more dealers in a smaller illegal drug market. Eventually, many of them will be forced out by increased competition and lesser profits, but also because the police will have the time and resources to pursue users of harder drugs, once marijuana enforcement is no longer a priority.
