Actually, in places where pot has been legalized and not made a big deal of, research suggests that the use in children has gone down. If it isn't the "wrong" thing to do, kids won't experiment nearly as much. And, from what I understand, Pot isn't really addictive. I know many people that have put it down and never touched it again with no problem. Can't say the same for alcohol or tobacco. As for having problems, most of the problems caused by pot are caused by the criminalization of it. Competition for sales by gangs, cartels slashing and polluting national forests to grow it etc. If it becomes legal, the problems would practically vanish. Making it legal will NOT cause any more people to smoke it than what do now. Unless you live in a cave, you know it is easy to get, and millions of people smoke it whether it is legal or not. Legality will only make it possible to use without going to jail.keep it illegal! if it becomes legal we will have a lot of problems and people especially kids will get addcited to it too!
It's a simple thing. Give people a choice. I have tried pot, and I don't like it for myself. But I don't like to drink alcohol anymore either. But millions of people do. If they want it, give it to them. Pot doesn't cause half of the problems that alcohol does and has many medical uses, as I stated in my story above. Besides, a little relaxation would do this society some good.
