    States should pay anyone who has marijuana (the drug) sources to give the product away. This would satisfy demand sufficiently that supply would not be so profitable, and the crime associated with the drug would disappear. Experience would show whether this policy could be extended to other addictive drugs. It should be illegal to sell any amount of marijuana for use as a drug, either by individuals or by government agencies. There should be no penalties for using it; this is an individual choice with no effects on any but the user.
