Does Luis Fábregas suggest that Tyler Wolfley, the poster child in his cautionary-tale column about legalizing marijuana, “Legal pot: Pa. needs to see the science” , was not dependent on pot before it was legalized in Colorado or that Wolfley would not continue to use it if it were to be recriminalized? The difference between Colorado and Pennsylvania is that in Pennsylvania, Wolfley would stand a good chance of being in jail.

I would be happy to debate with Mr. Fábregas the public-policy merits of Colorado's approach to marijuana use over Pennsylvania's. Pennsylvania has a lot of things to be wary about, but legal pot is not one of them.
