I have no problems with legalizing it but let's not pretend that marijuana is a perfect drug
I'm not going to pretend like other people here that it's a harmless drug, especially with many people overdosing on edibles, mellowed people don't shoot their wife or make some young kid take a diver out of a hotel window.

Even if everyone you saw mellowing out got criminally violent, how many people would that be? 100 1000 not only would that be an anomaly but statistically thats a drop in in the bucket. Not to mention you hang with a very hip crowd, or you are in law enforcement where you are automatically exposed to the worse night in and night out. Would you not agree incidents of violence or much more likely under the influence of alcohol as opposed to cannabis.
and we haven't even talked about it's likely medicinal properties. Sure regulate and tax the hell out of it, but make it easily available to those that need it medically, nation wide. At the very least.
