I am a pot smoker as are many of my friends. The only thing the
eradication program has accomplished is to drive the pot prices sky
high. But it is still readily available. They will never stop it.
People are going to smoke and they'll always be able to get it. I
favor decriminalization and channeling the money into education and
rehabilitation for people.
