Washington Post suggests marijuana should be regulated to protect kids from accidental use; anti-libertarian?

The liberal Washington Post has come up with an “editorial board” piece, “Colorado gives D.C. a reason to tread carefully on recreational marijuana”   A friend on Facebook posts “Deny adults access to everything that children might misuse. Put down that laundry pod and no one gets hurt.”  You can make a similar argument about guns, of course.

Here’s a CNBC Documentary (42 min): “Marijuana in America: Colorado Pot Rush”.

The risk of such a business would not be for me, but in Colorado it also means jobs and income for a lot of people.
Pictures:  I don’t know whether people could be held liable for mind-altering plants that birds plant on their property wild, but there have been rare marijuana prosecutions in these circumstances in the distant past.
