I'm actually torn about this one. I don't think pot should be illegal because it's pot. The detrimental affects of alcohol on society are far worse than smoking weed. I think it should be illegal for the same reasons smoking should be illegal. It's dirty and pollutes the air and land. I can't believe the amount of non-biodegradable butts that are left around every smoking area and tossed thoughtlessly out a car window by some ignorant son of a bitch. Not to mention the burden on the health system. On the other hand, at least weed has a purpose. Smoking doesn't even get you high. And if you toss a roach, it is biodegradable.
Given the nature of all this new information, I just convinced myself:
In the new world, marijuana will be legal and cigarettes will be illegal.
AND SO IT SHALL BE WRITTEN!
