When the framers of the constitution finally ratified the document, it included certain rights, which form the backbone of this country. The right to privacy is a basic human right, which is included within the constitution. Two score and five years before that, the Declaration of Independence guaranteed "life, liberty and pursuit of happiness." According to this, people should have the liberty to do anything as long as it doesn't create a danger to others. Following this reasoning, drinking beer is okay at home but not while at the workplace. The same logic should apply to marijuana, since a person should be able to smoke within his or her own doors, behind which the government should not have any jurisdiction (81, Marshall). For example, many college parties consist of people drinking beer kegs until they vomit in someone's apartment. However, when people smoke marijuana at a party the difference is that everyone has smiles on or his or her face, and no one is potentially dangerous to drive under the influence.
