In this video, Ezra Klein from vox.com explains in 2 minutes how legalized marijuana could make America healthier.

Legalizing marijuana is typically presented in the media as a kind of defeat: Drugs are bad, of course, but the drug war is even worse.

It’s possible, however, that legal marijuana could be a huge public-health win. Alcohol is a far, far more dangerous drug than marijuana — and there’s some evidence that marijuana can curb alcohol use. But the government doesn’t need to stop there: marijuana can be legalized in ways that make it much more attractive than drinking.
