    First of all, I believe people have the right to choose what they consume, whether it is a specific type of food, a crack rock, or a joint of marijuana. It is personal freedom and no amount of laws will stop it (actually, less laws will reduce it more). However, no tax payers should be funding drug habits. When it comes to people collecting tax payer funds to support their lives we should make sure it is not being spent on a drug habit. If you support yourself you can do what you want.
