Marijuana Should Be Legal if Alcohol, Tobacco Are

While alcohol- and tobacco-related deaths have been documented, both substances remain legal, providing a source of tax revenue.  In his column in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Kingsley Guy writes that while marijuana may not be entirely benign, data indicate that it is no worse than alcohol and tobacco, and may be less harmful.  He goes on to argue the benefits of legalization.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
