Well I watched a programme last night on this and it makes SO much sense to legalize it.
You can put age restrictions on it like cigarettes as tests have shown that if you smoke it either pre teen or just going into your teens then it has serious effects on learning. Start smoking it towards the end of your teens then no (or little) effect.
The only bad point that will be left is the addictiveness.

"Pot charge possible after Phelps’ pipe photo"

A spokesman for Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott, who is known for his tough stance on drugs, said Tuesday the department was investigating.
