A number of U.S. states are planning to legalize marijuana. Do you agree or disagree with this policy, and why?
Not in America, so it's not like it has a huge impact on me... but I wholeheartedly disagree.
There ARE negative side effects associated with marijuana - people who think there aren't are kidding themselves.
People compare it to alcohol - but the thing about alcohol that is VERY different is this - you can't get drunk standing next to someone who is drinking. The same is not true about any smoked substance. (Yes, I also think cigarettes should be outlawed. And I think this move sets that movement back.) Make your own damn choices, fine, whatever - but not when it has impact on OTHER people who DIDN'T make that choice.
