probably some of the best reasons to legalize it. keeping it illegal causes more problems than if it were to be legalized. half the thrill of most doing most things for kids is getting caught. how many times as a kid were you told not to do something and it made you want to do it even more. its just like prohabition in the 20s, alcohol usage and sales went through the roof when it was outlawed and than drastically declined when it was legalized again. another great point i came across while reading this article is the fact that marijuana is a so called "gateway drug" but if you leagalize it and keep kids away from drug dealers the chances of them having harder drugs is less likely. also if marijuana is controlled youll never have to worry about having your weed laced.
and i know for a fact if i was stoned at a bar instead of drunk that i would never make a mistake of hooking up with an ugly girl..
