Along with any drug or narcotic it has its place of what is appropriate. Marijuana has it's place in modern society. Well off successful individuals manage to use the substance at a rate that is no problem to them or others. There is no position in society that allows cigarettes to be openly available to 18+ , but disallows marijuana to all. Law enforcement takes up too much of their time to fight these individuals taking it to extremes.
Marijuana needs to be changed to a lesser degree on the scheduled narcotics scale at least. It has shown to be non physically addictive and actually have medicinal purposes. The tide is turning on this subject and it will be beneficial to get a head of the storm. We are at a time in our lives where the benefits of marijuana outweigh the cons and the longer the wait the more harm becomes our country.
