All you people who oppose legalized pot need to wake up and smell the 
cannabis. Do you really believe that making pot legal will all of a sudden 
make it more accessible? It can't get more accessible! Canada is swimming 
in pot. Anybody who wants some can find it easily whether they are a 
60-year-old hippie at the folk fest or a high school kid at the senior 
prom. The only thing that legalizing pot and selling it like booze will do 
is remove the criminal element. I don't use it and like most parents, I 
don't want my kids to, either, which is why I would far sooner see it 
regulated like booze rather than having it sold on the school grounds.

than it is now.)
