I am a liberal when it comes to legalization. I am against criminalization. After all, alcohol is legal and very dangerous to society.
That said, I have seen pot destroy the lives of many friends and acquaintances. It is often a gateway to coke and other more harmful drugs. And it really does make people stupider and more forgetful.
I don’t think anyone should smoke pot. But I don’t think the government should ban it. It’s a personal decision.
Besides, the more people smoke pot, the smarter I seem by comparison.
