Here's another angle maybe some of you are not thinking about. What other countries out there in the "developed" world, allow the use of this stuff? Amsterdam not included, lol. How much would a private citizen be allowed to have and store? Would a rpivate citizen be allowed to grow their own? If so, i want to be able to legally brew my own moonshine. But aside from that...look at how the US treats other countries that are known drug suppliers to this country. How then, would other countries treat us, because we would, essentially, become a supplier, whether we set out to or not. By us legalizing it, we would, in essence, be forcing other countries to do so as well, in the long run. Making them have more reason to have disdain for the US, since it is portrayed as an imperialistic country that likes to have authoritarian control over it's own citizens, as well as those of other countries.
Now, I'm not saying this is a valid reason NOT to legalize pot, or any other drug. Just saying it's something to think about.
