Is something morally wrong with legalizing marijuana?

My sister thinks its a great idea. I'm not so sure. What do you think?

i feel, like anything that we use to improve certain situations in our lives, it really isn't a question of if it's moral to make legal, but at what point does it's use become immoral?

Liquor has killed more people than marijuana.

It's immoral to punish people for it.

Legalize and tax it just like they do with liquor and cigarettes.

I suspect the first question to ask is: Is there something morally wrong with smoking mj?

Eudaimonist has disabled reputation
Legalize and don't tax it, but keep people personally responsible for any negative consequences of using it.

To answer the OP: I don't think it is the government's business to try to regulate moral behavior, as if it were a cosmic parent. It is there to enforce rights and secure individual liberty. It is moral to understand and respect this.

Perhaps it needs to be said, but I have never used marijuana and don't intend to, even if it were legal.


eudaimonia,

Mark

Even if it were legal, I don't think I'd use it. The smell is terrible.

That being said, I think it should be legal. Far more dangerous things are legal, and there's no good argument for making it illegal, at least from what I've seen.
