    Of course it is. There is a lot of money to be saved by not enforcing laws on marijuana. Lots of people pay hefty fines then have to pay for court ordered treatment. Add in the tax benefits to sales (in states that end up legalizing it) and its an all around plus.

    It makes no sense to spend billions of dollars jailing people for using a substance less harmful than alcohol or tobacco.

    If they legalize it I might actually give it a whirl. Never been very interested in trying it after watching my brother go to jail for weed.

    I hope they get it though. There's more harmful crap i could go buy from walgreens right now.

    Since you brought this up I'm curious, though you don't have to answer, how exactly?

    Is it due to legal trouble he's gotten in? In that case, its not the MJ that's screwing up his life its the laws making it illegal and his choice to engage in it.

    Is it due to smoking it too often? Again, in that case its his self control that's screwing up his life, not the drug.

    Ditto if he's spending too much money on it.

    Is it because he's getting in with a bad crowd? Again, that is related to both of the above things.

    Unless he had some kind of allergic reaction to it or one of the extremely rare cases where it helps to trigger an already present mental problem, I'm not sure how you can blame the marijuana. Its no different than when people complain that guns kill people.

    Marijuana is for hippies and commies, if we legalize that, we'll become one of them and John Lennon will win. I don't want my country looking like that

    Why is it for hippies and commies?

    I'm pretty sure the Soviets banned marijuana when they were in power.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
