New York Times Endorses Marijuana Legalization

Big news this weekend - the New York Times editorial board endorsed marijuana regulation, arguing it should be a state issue and not a federal crime:

It took 13 years for the United States to come to its senses and end Prohibition, 13 years in which people kept drinking, otherwise law-abiding citizens became criminals and crime syndicates arose and flourished. It has been more than 40 years since Congress passed the current ban on marijuana, inflicting great harm on society just to prohibit a substance far less dangerous than alcohol.

The federal government should repeal the ban on marijuana.
