The fact is, the prohibition against marijuana has to end in this country, and that’s why we endorse Question 7 (Regulation of Marijuana Initiative), which will make possession of up to one ounce of Mary Jane legal in Nevada for people over 21 years old. (OK, there’s more to it than that, check out www.regulatemarijuana.org.) With all the important things we have to worry about, it doesn’t make sense to spend one more cent of resources persecuting a mostly innocuous and private activity. Don’t prohibit it, regulate it. American citizens have been irreparably harmed by the so-called War on Drugs. There are dozens of reasons for ending prohibition and not that many for keeping it.
This is going to be interesting. Recent polls show it to be getting very close.
