Cannabis legalised for intimidating looking people
When was the last time you heard of a booze or stogie dealer? It's because kids don't drive the inebriation market, adults do.
And if you're under the impression kids will get their hands on pot anyway (they will), would you prefer it spent 6000 miles strapped to a leaky gas tank or six months meticulously nurtured and pruned by a professional botanist? I doubt you care if teens smoke pot because you probably did and you came out just fine.
And don't pretend like that's the reason you think it or any other drug should be illegal.
You support stop-and-frisk, well-aware of its abysmal record on racial profiling and knowing it would be effectively useless without the criminality of petty possession.
cannabis regulation because you're really a decent human being.
And while you'd be right, the truth is that I want this to be a real issue for you because I'm not being facetious.
It's law-abiding adults who will begin using pot in greater numbers, and the associated lameness of watching their parents ripping a bong will, if anything, probably decrease teen use.
Still, the whole argument is hypocritical from the get-go.
