Because every human being born has an endocannabinoid system, a network of receptors exclusively designed to capture cannabinoids and process them. Prohibiting the only source of cannabinoids, Cannabis, aka marijuana et al, prevents this receptor network from functioning. Everyone has this receptor network and everyone should be allowed to supply it.
