Legalize now

Re: The healing side of cannabis, Feb. 16-22.

Should pot be legalized? Of course it should. How do you justify criminalizing something simply because you disapprove of it? To commit a crime you surely have to do something to someone else. It’s understood of course that pot smokers should be held responsible for harming others while under the influence. Simply decriminalizing pot might sound like a sensible compromise, but it would still leave us with a criminal distribution system.
