Marijuana, like most drugs, is dangerous because it's fun with minimal effort.
It is also intoxicating, which means impairing.
Because it takes up a lot of time, it also becomes a lifestyle choice that separates one from the mainstream.
There is no escaping these facts.
We give up many things that are fun in the now for things that are better in the longterm.
I may support the idea of legalizing marijuana seed sales ONLY IF we also create the death penalty for any marijuana sales.
That way, those who can get their act together to grow it can enjoy it; those who sell it face a penalty that's too serious to ignore.
We should send a clear message, no equivocation: either our society supports it, or it doesn't.
If we do away with equality, we can say "For Shamans and homegrowers only" and sidestep a lot of the problem.
But the fact remains that most of our citizens are bored, miserable and confused, and love to get high. It does them no favors in the long-term.
Should we let them do it? It doesn't kill them before they breed.
