    You say this:

    I am all for banning tobacco and alcohol.

    And I have to ask: if we did that, while legalizing marijuana, wouldn't that be trading one criminal enterprise for another?

    I agree, marijuana's NOT as harmful as those other two drugs that we regulate. But prohibition is prohibition.

      The first try was such a legendary disaster that nobody will do that again.  Even now, nearly a century later, the memory is painful.
