S.E. Cupp makes good points about marijuana and gun control policies 
("Pot could put progressives in a tough spot," Jan. 7). But while the 
theory that less control leads to more safety is iffy when speaking 
about guns, it's quite true for marijuana. With legalization, many 
users may stop because they only sought the edgy, rebellious rush 
that came with smoking the illegal substance. Another benefit is the 
taxes to be raked in. As long as there are specific regulations and 
restrictions, like age and general mental and physical health, I 
don't see a real downside to the legalization of marijuana.
