Happy 4/20

No, I don’t smoke marijuana.  In fact, those times when I did smoke cannabis in college, I never got high.  (I concluded that I must be high 24/7.)  But it strikes me as silly that pot is criminalized while more deadly things, like cigarettes and other forms of tobacco, are legal.  In this video, Ezra Klein recites the facts about marijuana and why its illegality — in the face of more dangerous substances being legal — is so absurd.
