Ryan said - "The legality or illegality of a drug has no connection whatsoever with the rate of use."

How do you marry that statement with the factual evidence that seatbelt use has gone up since becoming a requirement, drunk driving continues to drop and gun crimes are much lower in Canada than the US.

It would seem to make sense that the same principle will apply here. People always knew it was smart to wear a seatbelt, but most didn't bother until they knew a fine would come their way.

How do you arbitrarily pick and choose when to apply this basic concept of action=consequence?
