In this post at Reason that also appeared at Time, the unbiquitous Nick Gillespie writes about the growing acceptance of marijuana legalization in the nation.  He concludes that, 

Legalizing pot won’t create a problem-free country any more than tearing down the Berlin Wall solved all the problems in East Germany or ending de jure segregation fixed race relations in the U.S. But it would reflect the will of an increasing number of citizens who realize the government has better things to do than tell us what we can and cannot put into our bodies. And it will also consign many terrible things about contemporary America to the dust heap of history.
