I don't partake... but I also don't see how anyone can think pot will be the downfall of this country. The people smoking now are smoking whenever they want to and they will continue to do so with very limited (if any) government intervention. There is virtually no problem with access to weed for most people. High school kids actually start smoking pot because it's easier for them to buy than beer.
By the way, alcohol is a just as much a gateway drug.
The best thing the country could do is to completely legalize and tax the bejezus out of it. It's a multi-billion dollar industry.
Charge distributors an annual fee, tax profits, and tax the consumer some crazy percentage. The country could solve some serious financial problems here by just taking money from people who are happily giving it to illegal dealers.
