Should ObamaCare have been "rolled out" the same way as Marijuana Care?

I am not really a fan of Marijuana for people under the age of 30, I think it makes it easier for people to hide out and simply hang out with others who do MJ as well. Not only that, but do something with your life FIRST, then if you feel MJ is a reward once you hit 30, then I am basically neutral. 

The vision of people in their late teens smoking MJ seems over the top for me. Go fight a war, build a house, volunteer your time for the elderly, veterans, or the terminally ill, then maybe you've earned the right to chill out. I think it makes sense to EARN the right to do something that may be pleasurable.

While I definitely don't think people under the age of 30 need marijuana, I do find the gradual roll out of Marijuana Care one or two states at a time interesting when compared to the rush to get Obama Care up and running right away.

The U.S. has become such an all or nothing country that the idea of gradually introducing something new never seems to be given much consideration.

Perhaps the all or nothing approach has more to do with whether or not a new idea or proposal is a federal idea vs a local idea. A federal idea by its very nature is supposed to be implemented everywhere at approximately the same time, whereas local ideas (state by state) happen when they happen.

Perhaps the fear in rolling out ObamaCare slower than everywhere at once was that there would not be enough revenue if the first states involved in ObamaCare were deficit users. Rather than make every state profitable, the federal government can hope for an overall balanced budget in which the deficit spending states are balanced out by states that run a surplus. lol, that is the dream.

I am personally a proponent of slow but steady wins the race. Many times what we end up with is something new that takes so long to become law that the "slow and steady" approach left the building during the negotiating process between democrats and republicans.

I think it should have taken 3 to 5 years to roll out ObamaCare, with major changes made as new data came in every year. The idea that ObamaCare can be initiated everywhere at once and be up and running and working and successful within the first year is somewhat laughable, and pretentious to boot.

The thing about Marijuana Care is that as a state here or there legalizes marijuana, new, never before seen data will begin to emerge which allows all the other states to consider if, when, and how they delve into legalizing marijuana.
