Making room for marijuana

We admit, the thought is surreal. The idea of a perfectly legal state-licensed corner store selling marijuana, a retail operation not so different from selling cigarettes, pop and beer, is difficult for the mind long accustomed to pot prohibition to accept. We the law-abiding think of marijuana as fodder for the police blotter, not something people can walk down the street and buy.

Time for a reality check. People can walk down to the street and buy it now. They have been able to for years. It’s just that now, perhaps in a few months’ time, it will be legal. It will be controlled, monitored, and managed under law.
