At least you admit the hypocrisy, that's pretty cool of you. And wine can be very good for you at the rate of one small glass a day...but of course most wine glasses are basically small boats these days. As for why you hold cannabis in contempt, it's because it's what you've been told about it by society. If you are interested, look into the history of why it was banned. It was basically a big bunch of racism. Before cannabis became synonymous with Mexicans and black people (hence the common term "marijuana" which is actually considered to be part of the racism by some and is why you will hear people in medical circles using "cannabis" instead) you could buy it in your local pharmacy for tooth pain. One of the common media taglines at that time was "marijuana makes darkies think they're as good as white men".
