    All one had to do was watch movies to know that marijuana legalization was just a matter of time.  Since the late 1960s, if a character in a movie smokes a marijuana cigarette, you are supposed to like that person.  In fact, so potent is the audience-endearing power of weed, that never in the last 45 years of cinema have evil characters been allowed to smoke it.  By "evil character," I mean not merely a criminal, for the movie-goers often like criminals, but rather I mean someone the audience would like to see die, or least come to a very bad end.

    This cannot be said of any other drug, from heroin to aspirin.
