One of the problems that the marijuana reform movement consistently faces is that everyone wants to talk about what marijuana does, but no one ever wants to look at what marijuana prohibition does.
marijuana never kicks down your door in the middle of the night.
marijuana never locks up sick and dying people.
marijuana does not suppress medical research.
marijuana does not peek in bedroom windows.
Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than marijuana ever could.
