[…] There’s no argument from me on point 1, and polls show that many of the people in Colorado and Washington who voted to legalize cannabis did so not with the goal of seeing consumption increased, but because they thought that the resources being used to suppress consumption could be better spent elsewhere. The so-called “War on Drugs” over the last century has been such a disaster that even if cannabis consumption could be shown to be the most grievous of sins, the response by our civil government has been even more so.
