Good article with excellent points.
However, it needs to be remembered that just because people like it, it doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. I’ve seen lives ruined by marijuana — seen them personally. It is NOT a harmless drug, regardless of how many fewer crashes it causes than alcohol, how much less cancer it causes than cigarettes, etc. And, regardless of how much propaganda you may have read to the contrary, it is addictive.
I’m absolutely in favor of legalization and regulation, but that doesn’t mean I think it’s a great idea. It’s just the only one that is likely to improve on the one we’ve been beating like the proverbial dead horse for the past 80 years or so. The best drug is healthy living and dealing with your issues — not turning off your brain.
