#1 Marijuana is not heroin and not cocaine. While I do not think there are a myriad of pluses I do not think there is overwhelming evidence of the negatives (the most prevalent seeming to be impaired memory and general amotivational behavior). In the larger sense, much like alcohol, I think the citizens would benefit from building their own private determination of the pros and cons of its use rather than being impelled by the state. Most I think if left to their own devices probably would not imbibe since it will, under legalization, probably attain the same social standing as smoking or alcoholic inebriation eventually. Also there probably is some uncertainty with the respiratory risk of smoking marijuana as well as other health concerns including long-term mental effects.

#2 other health concerns including long-term mental effects.

I've read about an increase in paranoid schizophrenia in the susceptible, Unclassifiable. And as we are already seeing a problem with such people suddenly shouting "Allahu akhbar!" and attacking those in the vicinity, I'm not sure we want to drive the creation of even more.

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
