Say what you will about Hugh Hefner (no really, say whatever you will about him), but the guy did nail it on cannabis. How many lives have been harmed or even ruined because of cannabis prohibition. What basis is there for treating cannabis so differently from alcohol? And why would you think that cannabis prohibition can work when it never has and when alcohol prohibition failed so miserably. Whether you approve of cannabis for recreational or medical usage, can you not agree that the time has come to end its prohibition? Isn’t it just compassion and common sense at this point?
