    The problem is not the harm that marijuana does. Obesity, lack of exercise, air, water and soil
    polution, genetically modified food, do far more harm to individuals than marijuana.

    The problems is if only 1 country in the world legalizes marijuana then legal and illegal markets
    will want to sell to the rest of the world underground or above board. How do you regulate the
    growth, cultivation, and distribution locally or in the rest of the world where it is illegal. That
    is the problem and the politics.
