I'd like to add that the cannabis-legalization issue is not whether
cannabis is completely safe for everybody, including children and
adolescents. It is not.

The issue is freedom of choice for adults. Children have died from
eating peanuts and peanut butter, but we don't cage peanut growers,
sellers or consumers. And the voters in Colorado and Washington have
decided that we should not cage cannabis growers, sellers or consumers.

California adults have the freedom of choice of whether or not to
consume legal alcohol. Shouldn't California adults have to same
freedom of choice that Colorado and Washington adults have?

Those opposed to cannabis use would still have the freedom to not grow
it, sell it or use it.
