Wanting to get high and seeing the negative effects and futility of the drug war are not the same thing.

Saying "the prohibition of marijuana is not stopping people from using and we might as well legalize so we can tax and regulate it" is not the same thing as "I wanna get high."
O yea

To get around the black market issue, sell licenses to smoke. A thousand dollars a year (or some other agreeable sum) could be charged to those wishing to partake. This would be their get out of jail free card. If you dont have said card, you still go to jail. Sort of like a drivers license. But setting people up for failure is the only thing that will be accomplished by decriminalizing weed. If a person wants to find a job, they will still have to pass a drug screen in 98 percent of the cases. We are just creating another welfare class.
Just sayn
