Hatter, to answer your post, see above. ^^^
I don't like the arguments of the pro-weed crowd. They ignore all evidence that marijuana does in fact have strong negative effects, that it would take a large amount of infrastructure and expense to make it legal, and have yet to prove any reason why we should encourage the negative effects and overlook the high transaction cost of legalizing it.
In the end the response tends to always boil down to stupidity (see earfetish's response) or the same "you're harshing my buzz, man." When these folks try to talk about the subject, I shut them down. I don't want their skunk on fire smell to rot my debate time. When someone is willing to debate a subject on an intellectual level, as is RARELY the case with legalizing marijuana, I will do so.
Nothing about recreational marijuana use if positive. Nothing. While there may be some negatives to the current enforcement regime, unleashing a prodct with no positive benefit whatsoever, and known negatives, onto the public is not an acceptable alternative. There is a middle ground, but the pro-weed crowd wants none of it. They want their illicit past time to be legalized. That's really all they care about. Very rarely does one approach the pro-legalizaion argument with a motive that does not involve wanting to light up themselves with no consequences. That last sentence is perhaps the biggest reason I have such disdain for the subject.
