I'm not sure how I feel about this. I find it sad that many people are desperately addicted to these products, but just like Cohle I'm not too sure that this would have the desired effect. Looking at the history of the US it appears that illegalizing substances has actually increased consumption. In my opinion the root of this is probably cultural, and it isn't probable that legal decisions like this would amount to changing the ways people are accustom to living.
Nope, bad idea. Cigarettes will become just like pot. Everything being done illegally and in secret. If people want to smoke, they'll find a way to smoke. And this is coming from someone who hates smoking.
Just kidding I understood, what was meant was a term for cannabis commonly used by baby boomers in a derogatory manner.
