I thought I was pretty explicit in saying that I didn't want to get into this kind of conversation, but I'll bite: the short answer is "no".
The long answer is (in part) "No because:
1. Marijuana is decriminalized in MA, so even assuming I considered marijuana to be worthy of being wholesale illegal, I would be about as concerned with any innate hypocrisy as I currently feel for my past speeding / parking tickets as I do for smoking marijuana in the past and present.
2. "One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws." - MLK; IMO there is no justification for marijuana to be "illegal" and the argument for it to be a fineable offense is fairly weak."
Your logic makes no sense. Just because YOU don't think it should be illegal doesn't change the fact that it is and that you're going to be a member of the bar.
I think I should be able to drive as fast as I want, make sports bets with a bookie, and punch someone who offends me without criminal penalty. Should I just be able to do that stuff, too?
