    that is legal.

    So why not be satisfied with that??? Everything was illegall during Prohibition remember.

    Truth is:if even the hardest drugs like heroin, meth and crack were made legal - there would be a consumer market for something else.

    Just human nature I guess.

    Some people are genetically predisposed to alcoholism and the same applies to all recreational substances. There is such a thing as the addictive personality. Individual biology (and psychology) has all to do with it.

    I dislike any kind of beverage alcohol, including beer, and I always have. I don't like the taste or the smell and I especially don't like the effect of it. I like marijuana, which is the only recreational drug I've ever used and I have no interest in trying any other. For me, marijuana has an extremely pleasurable, relaxing and intellectually liberating effect with absolutely no negative effect.

    But I'm well aware that many others like alcohol and either don't care for or respond negatively to marijuana.

    Never had much taste for Whisky. I did drink vodka (and rum) quite a bit when I was much younger, but not so much anymore. I prefer wine.

    The government has no right to tell anyone what substances they can or can't use.

    And neither do you.

    It shouldn't be....compared to alcohol it's much safer. People have died of alcohol poisoning...nobody has died from overdosing on pot.
