Well I'm all for keeping marijuana banned. As stated in the posts that are above me(most of them) we already have to many drugs that are legal the way it is. Personally I've drank and smoked and quite both of them finding that all they do is distract me from what is real. I never went as far as to smoke marijuana, but I have had friends who did and I've seen how it affects people. I agree with nexusolus that alcohol and other such drugs should be banned. So to answer anime_being_god's question...it's not nessicarly that alcohol is isn't as dangerous it's more of just it's been around to long to get rid of. As for marijuana it's not a legal prominent part of our soceity and we don't need to make it one.
