As to your point in the papers you cite, that is NOT the point. Nice straw man.

0) Advocates for legalization readily agree that cannabis is not for developing brains under the age of 18.

1) Realists realize that Prohibition has FAILed to keep pot out of the hands of children.

2) The current laws also FAIL to keep pot out of the hands of adults.

On the other hand, advocates of Continued & Increased Prohibition can point to the terrible demise of Canada as it is foundering in a miasma of Legal Cannabis that is sapping the vital energy of the people, nosediving the economy, with rampant sex in the streets and drugged out zombies breaking into homes just for the thrill of it.

Or not.

Canada had the second highest rate of cannabis consumption before legalization but Canada did not elect tRump or allow him to steal the Electoral College.
