Stop the tiresome mantra about legalized marijuana

Opposing legalizing marijuana for fear it might become easier for teens to get is nonsense. Any kid who wants it can get it now. That it's outlawed merely adds the allure of forbidden fruit. And please, no more chanting that tiresome mantra that pops up whenever anyone wants to stigmatize the age group: teens brains aren't fully developed yet. Oh yeah? Then there must be legions of chemists, physicists, doctors, lawyers, educators, engineers, architects, artists, businesspeople and other professionals who are full of regret that their brains didn't develop because they smoked a few joints at parties. 

I'm 77 and as far as I'm concerned, my brain's still developing.
