pot prohibition is still a massive failure, and legalization is the better choice. i tend to be skeptical of any reefer madness type articles. drug dealers don't card; legitimate marijuana retailers do, and drug dealers will be selling about as much pot as they do alcohol.
eventually, it will be legal nationwide, and we'll stop wasting money and ruining people's lives over simple possession. this will piss off a lot of prohibitionists, but we tried it their way for like 80 years, and it didn't work.
