All consequences ascribed to alcohol would apply... driving under the influence, underage intoxication, etc...
I have not decided whether or not this should apply to "harder" drugs, though the free care for addiction, should.
That's my basic position and reasoning. Instead of criminalizing the problem, treat the problem... when there is a problem.

My former FIL had terminal cancer back in '98. I wish there would have been a way to get him something to help with the after effects of nausea and vomiting after he received chemo treatments via pic line. Like, marijuana.
He instead received THC pills, which did virtually nothing and he most times would vomit those up. He lost weight, was weak and overall nauseated all week until his next round of chemo.
To see someone you love in pain to the point that they starve themselves because their body is revolting against a chemical that is killing not only the bad cells, but the good ones as well ... is indescribable.
Maybe if he'd had access marijuana he could have *at least* been held some food down, maybe he would not have been nauseous all the time - maybe not. But he never got the opportunity. He passed away February 22, 1999.
It's not only "pot heads" that think medical marijuana would/could do some good. I get so angry when I read that only pot heads want to see marijuana decriminalized. Those people have no idea the motives why some of us would like to see this happen.
Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice....shame on me.
The majority support the legalization of pot in this recent nationwide poll.
That's good. Hopefully this trend continues until it reaches the point that a majority of likely voters approve of legalization

All is forgiven. Go and sin no more my son.
PS.... Commercial grade mexican in 1975 was 100.00 per lb and 160-180 for a kilo. A "matchbox" of weed was 2-3 dollars and you had to go to "the other side of the tracks" to buy quantities that small. Me and my friends would give away matchboxes should the friend be out of weed. Fat four finger ounces (lids) were only 10.00 bucks. Heck, I spilled more than a matchbox of weed without ever bending over to pick it up. If you bought doobage for 50.00 a pound you gotta be at least 75 years old.
Back on topic. Weed is addictive. I know. Any questions? Good. Case closed. Have a nice weekend class and remember. Monday. Class starts at 8:00 am. Bring pen and paper.

In college it was all about buying and frying some eggs, man. A dozen was an ounce and 3 egg omelet was a quarter. Then we (me and my cousin) decided to splurge for a pound. Coulda called that a chicken farm!
