Why legalizing marijuana affects us all: We will be inhaling their pot smoke at bus stops and as they pass us on the sidewalks. In apartments, hotels and motels, the smoke will waft into our spaces. Smoke will come through under the door. When they smoke on balconies and porches, the smoke drifts into other apartments.
I know because a pot smoker below me fills my apartment with his smoke when on the balcony. It's such a rotten smell. In bars and at dance clubs, others will get high from the pot heads smoking there. All of the people standing outside their workplaces will "infect" us such as Giant Eagle, offices, hospitals etc. Some of them might stand five feet away from the entrance but we still have to pass them to continue shopping or getting to our cars.
Legalize other drugs that can't be smoked so they can just "stupefy" themselves rather than those nearby. Cigarettes shouldn't even be legal either because we have to inhale their poison on a daily basis on the streets and in our apartments.
Instead of cleaning up drugs, politicians are encouraging them.
