Why do people smoke pot? Well, let me tell you from experience. Because 
when we smoke pot we get high from that one joint. The high is softer than 
the high from alcohol. No matter how many joints I smoke after the first 
one, they will not make me any higher than the first joint did. The high 
does not double its effect. Alcohol will make you higher with every drink. 
If you keep drinking faster sooner or later you will pass out. But on pot 
you remain at the same high joint after joint. With pot you can only get as 
high as a six-pack of beer. That's why it's safer than alcohol. And that's 
why we need to legalize and regulate and tax it. Take it out of the 
criminal market and into a legal market.
