Like me. I have never smoked marijuana, yet I am wholeheartedly for its full legalization, not only for matters of principle, but economics. Not only should people be free to use this low-risk substance, but I, as a taxpayer, am sick and tired of paying to enforce this prohibition. Between police, judicial, and other costs, the active cost of prohibition is in the tens of billions of dollars, and that doesn't even include all the lost productivity caused by hassling honest citizens about their private behavior. That figure also does not include if marijuana were a legal crop, how much tax the industry which produces it would pay.

Not to mention that ending prohibition would seriously cut into the profits of violent, organized crime.
But women and water are in short supply
There's not enough dope for us all to get high
I hear it gets better, that's what they say
As soon as we sail on to Cane Garden Bay
