Not attacking Ducknwood but your assessment is way off base.
It is the Taboo factor that attracts some teens to pot. If decriminalized or legalized, the mystic would be gone.
Todays teens prefer liquor because the smoking of anything, being tobacco or pot is not cool.
If a 21 year old can buy beer or booze than they certainly should have the right to buy pot.
But, my biggest concern is for the ailing that are forced on to perscription drugs with thier harsh and dangerous side effects when all they want is a simple herb that makes them feel much better, cost less and is much safer for them.
P S That forklift driver is going to be a heck of a lot more dangerous under the influence of booze, so maybe we should make that illegal. Besides, if the forklift driver were stoned, he would be driving it so slowly that everyone would have more then ample time to get out of the way!
