Apparently some people check Loyalty, Duty and Honor at the door. We have an oath to never leave a fallen comrade, that apparently is until their choice of medicine or relaxation is cannabis.

While my support is mostly for the medical use of marijuana, the results that Colorado has obtained in lowering the crime rate and the use of marijuana by children by bringing the use into the open by regulating it like alcohol can't be denied. There's also the taxpayer dollars saved by having their police concentrate on more important issues, and the money they've collected in taxes.
Industrial hemp is also too big of an economic opportunity for farmers in both the United States and Canada for us to ignore, so if we're going to take the "bacon" off the pig, I guess we need to look at the rest of the hog and also look at some of the other advantages of the plant.
Which brings me to the possible impact we can have if we get marijuana away from the criminal element and make it so dull that there's absolutely so excitement of breaking the law that gives some people their "I'm getting away with something" incentive for using when they're just as likely to do the same with anything else that's illegal.
Because some people just want to break the law, and marijuana has as a big part of it that "I won't listen to anyone" thing, but if we start growing it like corn and soybeans, and veterans take all the rebellion out of it, we'll see it sort of fade away as an issue, and people will just go on with their lives.
Because we're talking about a plant.

I believe we should have the choice. I can choose to go drink alcohol which has the potential to kill me or someone who may cross my path should I drink and drive. I can choose (for severe rheumatoid arthritis) medications with side effects from organ damage to death yet I cannot choose this safe alternative!
