Let's be real here for a second, weed isn't GOOD for you like some want to think. It also isn't what you said it is. The biggest gateway drug is alcohol but you don't see states or the govt wanting to ban that and for good reason.
They are making too much money off of it so it's not even on the table. Weed does make you lazy, it isn't good for your lungs and more than anything makes you procrastinate about the important things in life.
Just like anything else though, it's ok in moderation. I drink once in a while and that doesn't make me an alcoholic. Same with someone who wants to come home and smoke a joint to relax from a hard days work, nothing wrong with that.
Most important thing is moderation and educating one's self about what it really is and what it does.
