Fifteen years ago I heard a lecturer say that in a generation we would wonder why it was ever illegal in the first place.
Actually, it should be "illegal in the second place". Marijuana was outlawed more so for it's commercial competition in industrial uses than for any kind of drug reasons. But I always find it curious, liberals generally hate tobacco but love marijuana, whereas we're generally the opposite. Why is that?

As Eric Blair 2084 told me on another thread, liberals may prefer a stoned population. Nicotine, on the other hand, increases focus, making it more difficult for the elites to get their shenanigans by the people. This theory would help explain the budding passion for limiting e-cigarettes as well.
