Call us biased all you want, but it’s hard to find much wrong with marijuana legalization.
Legal adult-use cannabis sales have been good for schools, good for the economy and good for social justice. Jobs have been created, potholes have been filled and teachers and police officers (how’s that for irony) have been hired or kept on the job thanks to tax revenue.
Regulated and taxed cannabis sales haven’t caused a massive crime wave (sorry, Jeff Sessions), haven’t led to hordes of stoned teenagers dropping out of life (Instagram is a much bigger threat to society than weed) and haven’t led to dire political or social consequences for the lawmakers and citizens who supported them.
About the only thing we can name that’s been actively and possibly harmed by recreational marijuana legalization is medical marijuana.

The political situations in countries where there are more than two viable political parties can be understandably difficult for American audiences to comprehend. Britain is a great example.
The Conservatives, the current party-in-charge, are indeed conservative, and they’re clear to the right of Labour, the leading opposition party. Easy enough.
But then there are the Liberal Democrats, a sort of center-left party—but absolutely more center than left—who have only the tiniest of presences in the House of Commons, with eight seats out of 650 (and yet more than 100 seats in the House of Lords). They’re not rabid nationalists who eat austerity for breakfast, nor are they socialists. They’re, well, sort of like establishment American Democrats. They’re boring—and lately, they don’t really win too much.
This now may change, thanks to cannabis.
