The concert Malia was attending was in Chicago. A few years ago, Chicago loosened up its fairly strict marijuana laws. Now possession of a small amount of marijuana gets you a ticket instead of an arrest, but the fine is several hundred dollars. Smoking in public, however, is a different offense and can easily lead to arrest. No one is arguing that Malia should be arrested for her smoking (if she was) ó but then why should anyone be arrested for it? The rules should apply to everyone, including the presidentís family, in the same way. And itís the rules themselves that need changing. A Federal ban on marijuana remains in place, even in states that have legalized it. If the presidentís Harvard-bound daughter is smoking marijuana without repercussions, perhaps other people should have the same benefit.
