The current marijuana laws are doing absolutely nothing to keep people from getting high, just like prohibition did nothing to keep people from drinking. Let's try regulation and see what happens.
I agree and would add for a set period of time, like 2 or 3 years to see results. And decide from there.
Of course some rules need be applied. Not in public, a set amount per week or month (all things in moderation) for use in ones home. Not to be brought outside of the home...
I'm sure others have more ideas to add to the above.
