Cigarettes are legal - I don't smoke. Alcohol is legal - I don't drink. It's about the individual having a right to choose. It's been proven to be beneficial for medicinal purposes and it should be legal for recreational purposes as well. For the gentleman stating that his company can't hire 'stoners' in his line of work I'm curious how many of his employees drink alcohol and how often? Most would not consider coming to work under the influence of alcohol as I'm sure most 'stoners' wouldn't go to work under the influence.
