Legalize it!

Andrew Sullivan has been running an ongoing series on The Daily Dish about legalizing marijuana. Essentially, it's an attempt to cut through the lies, hysteria, and self-justification of the authorities by having actual users tell their stories anonymously. The latest entry is from someone with bi-polar disorder who's only able to function when he's had his hits:

"Am I psychologically dependent on pot? Probably. Am I a textbook case of irresponsible self-medication? Almost certainly. But can someone please tell me what the harm is?"
As the late comedian Bill Hicks put it on broader grounds (and I'm paraphrasing), it's nobody's business what I do so long as I do not harm another human being.
