Even though I agree "in principle" with people being able to smoke weed legally, I see no good that could come out of it. Other than a few medical advances that could be made and some pain relief there is nothing that it could contribute to our society that would advance us socially or make our daily lives better. It's like taking freedom to an extreme and fighting for something in principle and tripping over many issues much more important. Pick your battles and know when to let things go and when to hang on. The recreational use of either marijuana or alcohol has caused countless problems with deaths and diseases and in the end has done society no good and never will. When we legalized alcohol after prohibition we didn't do it because it was any good for you and the same will be for marijuana.
