From P.J. O’Rourke (born 1947), American political satirist, as quoted in Busted : Stone Cowboys, Narco-lords, and Washington’s War on Drugs (2002) edited by Mike Gray:
Marijuana never kicks down your door in the middle of the night. Marijuana never locks up sick and dying people, does not suppress medical research, does not peek in bedroom windows. Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than marijuana ever could.
