I think it depends on what "society" you are referring to. The demonizing of marijuana works great in small towns, but not so much in somewhat progressive places like Madison, WI. Most people here do know the difference between hard drugs and pot. As do most recent polls indicate that medical marijuana should be legal.
Many parts of Society are already on board and I believe it is only a matter of time before the the rest of Society is forced to recognize the truth about marijuana and realize it makes no sense whatsoever to arrest and lock non-violent people in cages for growing it to use as medicine or whatever else.
