    I don’t think it’s even a question. Yes, marijuana should be legalized. First, the number of people doing it right now with no harm makes it a health issue but clearly not a legal issue – certainly no more so than alcohol. Second, right now the costs of incarcerating people that possess marijuana are so substantial that you could conceivably save billions upon billions of dollars by releasing them. Third, there will always be underground markets. The more harmful hard drugs would be easier to manage for lawmakers and police officers if the other drugs were legal. How much easier would it be to prevent illegal drug dealers if marijuana dealers were less common? Half of them would go broke.

    I have never done marijuana in my life. I have no intention of ever trying it. But you’ll have an impossible time convincing me there is ever a reason to make it legal. It’s a ridiculous law.
