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.
There's no evidence at all that weed use leads to the use of harder drugs.

That's like saying having a few beers leads to drinking brake fluid.
