Henry Rollins.

Henry Rollins doesn’t smoke pot, but he doesn’t give a damn if you decide it’s right for you. That’s the way the entire country should approach pot legalization, according to the spoken-word poet and founder of hardcore punk band Black Flag:
“I think smoking pot is a monumental waste of time, so I don’t do it. However, I am not at all interested in keeping you from it. If America can regulate, tax and sell alcohol and tobacco – two wildly addictive and potentially harmful substances – you would think legalizing marijuana shouldn’t be an insurmountable hurdle.”
