Drugs, the Victimless Crime...

...or maybe not.  From the local radio station in Washington, DC:

WASHINGTON - A Loudoun County teen is in the hospital after overdosing on synthetic marijuana which is often found in gas station type convenience stores. The 15-year-old was taken to Inova Loudoun Hospital in critical condition but is now listed as stable.

Dr. Ed Puccio, the medical director of the hospital's emergency department says these cases of young people overdosing on this drug can be common in Loudoun.

"There could be several cases in a week and sometimes there maybe be several weeks without a case," he says.

If you want your kid to wind up in the ER in critical condition, by all means support legalization, and thus even broader use, of drugs.
