legalisation = commonplace
I've recently been to Washington where it is legal, and it was horrible. The smell of cannabis permeated the entire city. If it's not illegal, people will smoke it everywhere. How will you stop that? I don't want my children growing up with that as a familiar smell. Also, how will employers continue to have drug free workplaces if cannabis is legalised? Essentially you're only legalising it for unemployed people. I also don't believe it sits well with our rather wholesome, outdoorsy international image. It's a concern because a lot of your other policies sound really good.
