I think so. It's less dangerous and addictive than alcohol. And if it were legal it could be regulated so that people who smoke weed (or make it into hash brownies or whatever :) ) would be safer. Also there are a tonne of uses for hemp other than for use as a recreational drug that aren't being used because of it's illegality; eg. in moderation it can help relieve symptoms of a lot of illnesses (physical and mental), and it's excellent for making very environmentally friendly paper (because of how fast it grows and how durable it is )
I think every drug should be decriminalized (ie. some things would be illegal to sell but not possess), because then addiction could really be tackled as a social issue; it's a health problem, not a criminal one. And addicts could get the help they need far more easily if they didn't have to fear being imprisoned (they generally aren't dangerous people, just people having a really bad time in their lives)3

Yes but just like with alcohol you shouldn't be allowed to drive or operate other heavy machinery.
It should be legal because you can tax it, introduce a quality standard, and grow it locally. Imagine how many jobs this will open up.4
