Drugs and age

I see the UK government is planning on increasing the age limit for smoking to 18 this October.

Which has given me an idea - why not legalise cannabis and set an age limit for it? Since the stereotypical image of a pot-smoker is a slacker who doesn't want to work (you can see how seriously I'm taking this), then I'd suggest an age limit of 65 would be suitable.

Think of the advantages of this - it has many medical uses, pensioners are less likely to use it as a "gateway drug", it's hardly going to cause problems with it being more easily available as it appears to be readily available anyway, and best of all it'll give marijuana an immediate image problem. "Pot? That's for old people"...
