Have you ever legalized marijuana? 

Thoughtful — and very long, as is his style — essay from Steve Yegge on the subject of legalising marihuana.

Steve makes a very good argument for his cause — ‘it’s hard’ — but I find it a little odd, and he seems to say there’s something unique about marihuana in this sense; which is obviously ridiculous. Making any kind of law is hard, and saying it only applies to marihuana is a little weird.

But it might be useful in the future for people who believe it’s be possible to legalise (or indeed, prohibit), and be over with it. That’s just not how it works.
