I don't like alcohol. I don't like it, I don't drink, I don't like being around drunk people, so I avoid it.
Does that mean that every person who drinks alcohol should go to jail? Should their lives be destroyed for it? Or can informed adults choose what they want to put in their bodies or not? Alcohol consumption carries many risks (alcoholism, cirrosis, DUI, etc) while remaining perfectly legal. You can go into any grocery store and buy all the alcohol you want.
If you have even a minute amount of cannabis you can be arrested. You cannot overdose on cannabis, no matter how hard you try. It doesn't take much effort to give yourself alcohol poisoning.
Legalize cannabis and regulate it. Sales can be controlled, sales to minors would be prohibited, illegal operations would be out of business, and we could finally get some of the profit made from this incredible plant.
Please don't buy into the anti-cannabis propaganda!
