If Dr. Sabet’s reasoning makes your head hurt, try working through it backwards. He says legalization of marijuana would increase abuse, thereby increasing arrests, thereby leading to more costs. So, then, if we went returned to a strict new alcohol prohibition where anyone caught with a beer can be arrested and jailed, fewer people would abuse alcohol, we’d make fewer arrests for alcohol, and we’d have lower criminal justice costs for alcohol.

I want to dedicate this speech and this post to the hard-working volunteers for the Yes on I-502 campaign who endured boos, catcalls, jeers, taunts, angry shouts, and rude treatment at Seattle Hempfest for, unbelievably, promoting a legalization initiative that has made the ballot, has several high-profile, mainstream supporters from all walks of life, including law enforcement, is polling well, and has a good chance of passing.
