A number of U.S. states are planning to legalize marijuana. Do you agree or disagree with this policy, and why?

It isn't a matter of being 420 friendly, so much as the fact that one of the things making it possible for me to stay alive, able to eat, able to sleep (sometimes), etc. I have a prescription for it and would love to see the state take over the sales of it, especially if it meant that eventually it would be able to be paid by my insurance like my other medications with a co-pay. Unlike now where I have to pay full price, as does anybody else with a legitimate medical use for it.
