Legality of marijuana is best determined by the states. This debate is outside the scope of the federal government. Citizens and lawmakers are better equipped to make decisions about drug use at more local levels. Creating a national debate allows values of one end of the nation to influence the laws in distant areas of the nation, which is not just. Also, the individual should have the freedom to choose what he or she wishes to put into his or her body so long as no one else is harmed.
