I don't care what drugs people, to each their own, and I agree with allowing people the decision of what they want to do by weighing the pros and cons. With that said, you are comparing weed closely with cocaine. What the fuck? You have to be very misconceived about weed, even comparing it to alcohol, which a lot of people unfortunately do, is a pretty huge leap.
Just to clarify, the only harm weed will do to your body is if you combust it, it can cause smoker's cough and phlegm. It has never been proven to cause even cancer in your lungs. If eaten or vaped, marijuana has no proven harmful side effects (unless you consider increased appetite harmful). Studies show weed consumed daily over decades can even decrease the risk of cancer.
Sorry, just wanted to clarify that since you were trying to compare weed to cocaine, alcohol, and steroids.
Controversy first arose when the French-owned and Montgomery County, Maryland -based Keolis (already operating Virginia Railway Express trains) was the only bidder for the contract. The bidding process was suspended in the fall of 2010 due to lack of competition. Before bidding reopened in 2011, Maryland passed a law (at the request of Leo Bretholz and other Holocaust survivors) requiring Keolis's majority owner, SNCF (currently solely owned by the French government)  to fully disclose its role in transporting Jews to concentration camps during World War II (while SNCF was under control of the Nazi government), to the satisfaction of the Maryland state archivist, before Keolis would be allowed to place a bid for MARC service. Keolis faced similar issues while bidding for VRE operations in 2009, but in the end, they were allowed to run VRE.
