I'd like to add that marijuana is relatively safe in that it has never caused a documented death from its use. However, marijuana prohibition is very dangerous. Dangerous because marijuana is now sold only by criminals. Criminals who often sell other, much more dangerous drugs, and who offer free samples to their marijuana customers.
For the sake of our children, we need to regulate and control the sale of marijuana.
Only legal products can be regulated by our government. Only legal products can be controlled by our government. And only legal products can be taxed by our government.
Speaking of taxes, it seem to me that non-marijuana users would be very much in favor of taxing a product that they don't use.
Around here, taxing someone else's vice is very popular.
