    It's way easier, once you're 18, to get a pack of smokes than a bag.

    At least in terms of cannabis, The tobacco companies are unbeatable- they have all that infrastructure, they have an unbeatable system of distribution, and they have (sob) legitimate reputations.

    And it's all already paid for.

      person to misunderstand.

      I'm saying if you merely "decriminalize", which is what the parent post to my comment advocated, then mass demand will still be there, but since it's not "legalized", the big industries won't touch it. Mom & Pop's will not be able to keep up with the demand, everybody won't take the time to grow what they want, and we'll probably see a big rise of mafia within the US to intimidate the growers and small sellers.

      Justified anger does not grant you unrestricted license.
