Is legalizing/decriminalizing marijuana unfair to non-smokers?
Since all non-smokers are against it and hate people who smoke it, I can imagine that they all must feel very outraged and upset over the sudden change in the laws regarding it. I can't think of one reason why a non-smoker would support legalization of something they don't smoke and know it's bad for them.

It should only be allowed for medicinal purposes only as far as Im concerned. It causes people to be paranoid, unmotivated and very dependant and unable to function without it.

Like I said before, Booze is WORSE than weed but it's legal. If weed stays illegal Booze should become illegal too.

I have never smoked marijuana in my life, and I think it should be legal. I just think it is logical. Is it any more harmful than alcohol? No, it's probably less harmful. So, if alcohol is legal, marijuana should be too. Plus, I know a lot of people who smoke marijuana. I think about them, and I ask myself: is... More

Well for one you need to get your facts correct, I for one have never smoked, and never used pot. But I really dont care if it was legal.

If it's not around you, why do you care? No it's not unfair to a non-smoker. You have no right to tell me what I can do with my body if it's not affecting you.

I don't smoke marijuana, and I support legalization FOR ADULTS. I don't want teens getting their hands on it, but..... if adults want to smoke up, it's all right with me. Why did you say all non-smokers are against it? I'm against smoking pot, but that's mainly because it's against the law. It would be nice if I... More

I don't believe so at all. To make a statement that all "non-smokers" are against ending Cannabis prohibition that is completely false is unresponsive and a very weak argument. The fact is that there are many non-smokers who support legalization. Any foreign substance can cause harm to some individuals, while some are... More
