I don't smoke it so I don't care in that regard. I care more because it affects a lot of people. I know several people that do smoke it. A few I really would have liked to have met prior to them smoking to determine if it was the drugs that made them stupid or they were just stupid to begin with. But it kind of is ridiculous that marijuana can have harsh penalties that can be worst than other crimes that are violent or sexual in nature.
