  1. I wonder how many of the people who oppose to legalizing marijuana would also support a ban on all tobacco products. Would they support a resurrection of the 18th Amendment and the Volstead Act?

    I’d ask anyone who would support a ban on marijuana, alcohol, or tobacco – but not all three – to help me understand their logic. Conversely, if one is okay, why not all? How do they differ?
