    It's easier to go into your parents' liquor cabinet than it is to leave the house and find someone selling pot.

    I agree with you.

    However, that's not really an argument to legalize marijuana.

    But you are talking about the fringe minority. Most people who try LSD, coke, speed (meth) and opiates do not ever get hospitalized because of it or violently freak out or experience hallucinations.

    Those are relatively rare outlier reactions, not the norm.

    I never said the vast majority. I said that it happens, and it does. It happens with alcohol too though. These substances are literally poisons (other than perhaps marijuana). They can and do change some people's behaviors drastically.
