I think The Netherlands have the right attitude to cannabis. It isn't legalised, but it is decriminalised. I suppose if you completely legalised it then it should be taxed the same way tobacco is - and you'll eliminate a big chunk out of the drug dealer market. Which is only a good thing on society.

Negatives for legalising it - main issue is mental health. Seen so many people fall victim of mental health offset by weed. Also it can lead onto the use of harder drugs - so perhaps in the short term a big chunk is taken out of the dealers' market, but eventually this will be replaced by a harder underground market.
