Drug use, distribution, and cultivation are three different things. The act (and crime) of smoking marijuana (or using any other drug for that matter) is indeed victimless. What's further infuriating about the illegality of drugs, is that the very fact they are illegal is responsible for the overwhelming majority of the death and destruction surrounding their production and distribution.
