NYT: Legalize It!

The paper’s editorial board came out in favor of recreational pot, but one of their reasons might astound you:

There are no perfect answers to people’s legitimate concerns about marijuana use. But neither are there such answers about tobacco or alcohol, and we believe that on every level — health effects, the impact on society and law-and-order issues — the balance falls squarely on the side of national legalization. That will put decisions on whether to allow recreational or medicinal production and use where it belongs — at the state level.

Curious that the board doesn’t see many (any?) other problems where federalism might be the least bad solution.
