Many men on Medicare and Medicaid resell their Viagra prescriptions.
Many prescription medications in the US are available under different names without prescriptions in other countries.
This is another Liberal Trojan Horse to legalize marijuana and other illegal drugs.
*Even* if it were - why is marijuana illegal? Because someone decided (based on false information) that it is. Why is a death-causing prescription narcotic legal? Because someone decided (sometimes due to massive donations) that it is. The universe doesn't label chemicals with little signs stating legality, legality is *decided*. Why are steroids illegal? The answer given by the Dr. that is responsible for drug policy "Because I think they should be". Not a specific medical or scientific reason - in fact, this stance is in opposition to the medical association recommendation. In other countries they are legal, or regulated differently, so it's not as if it's a cut and dry stance.
Unless you're basing your decisions on what is/should be legal on science and logic, you're basically falling back on the old "I don't like it, so you can't have it" argument, which means that illegal/legal is basically someone's whim, and should be ignored.
