If the alternative is incarceration, fines, loss of jobs, breakup of families etc., then absolutely YES. Putting people in jail for possessing or using cannabis is ridiculous. Drug use - including alcohol, is a social and medical problem, not a law enforcement issue.
The war on drugs has become a war on privacy, and on personal rights. The war on drugs has become a more pervasive problem than the drugs themselves.
Governments should stop protecting the vested interests of tobacco and alcohol purveyors, under the guise of protecting the common good.
