Just curious is there anyone who believes that weed should not be legalized? And if so what are your reasons?

A better question is if there are any people who think week should be legalized, but not other drugs, and why.
My work here is, finally, done.

By legalized do you mean unregulated?

Decriminalized.
I am not opposed to regulation, similar to alcohol or other drugs/foods.

Yes. & No.

Yes, I think conventional wisdom says: weed should be legalized.

No! What we really need is... De-criminilization not legalization

Dsclmer: I am allergic to weed. So I am not in the core target group here.

By legalized I mean regulated in a similar manner to alcohol.

Well cocaine for example is certainly much more harmful than weed is. I don't really think they can be compared.

Of course they can be compared, depending on why you are comparing them.
Cocaine is harmful, so is alcohol and tobacco. Should they be outlawed, too?

If the reason is personal liberty, then it is irrelevant how dangerous the drug is.
If it is safety, then why tobacco?
If it is something else, it just seems subjective.

This isn't true necessarily, there is a threshold where highly risky behavior not only endangers yourself but also others. Crack and heroin addicts tend to do highly unethical and often illegal things to obtain the drug. The same can't be said for weed, alcohol, and tobacco.
