One side of the story.. What about it's addictive nature and mental health effects? Speaking from experience, I wouldn't encourage it's legalization.

Speaking from experience, marijuana is not physically addictive but it can be quite strongly mentally addictive. ie. if you are forced to stop, you can get pretty pissed off, but you don't fall ill. As for mental health, it seems that people who do have problems were likely to have been unstable to begin with. However, it does seem that early use of marijuana (pre 14 or 15 years old) can be more detrimental than the same use at an older age. Perhaps that has something to do with a developing brain.

One point I rarely hear made in favour of legalisation is that the goal of a drug dealer is to recruit more addicts, whereas the goal of a government would be to educate the public about the risks of drugs. Legalisation would put the responsibility of drugs into the hands of government, not perfect but preferable to gangsters.

I think legalisation is a no-brainer. The most recent killer argument I heard is that drugs are the main source of revenue for terrorist groups. I can't substantiate that but it's easy to believe. Legalise drugs and that revenue is cut.

Why not legalise all drugs for 5 years, after which there would be a referendum on whether or not to return to our current drug laws. Then we would find out if billions really are made through taxation and saving police and prison time, or whether unanticipated hidden costs emerge that wipe out those billions. Whether drug use goes up or down, how criminals change to make up for their lost earnings and the other effects on society both positive and negative. People can then make a more informed decision. What can be wrong with that?

Wow if I'd never learned anything about cannabis before watching this I'd wonder why the hell it was illegal... Unfortunately none of the arguments against legalisation are addressed, so I guess I'll never know if these are outweighed by all of its super brilliant qualities of cannabis we've just seen.
