Some people view it as something as bad as someone addicted to Meth! Ummm...If you look at a meth addict's MRI of their brain you will see a huge difference. Others said it will lead to people using other drugs. Well, like the saying you can take a horse to water but you can't make him drink. Marijuana doesn't make people upgrade in drug use, PEOPLE choose to upgrade. Many other things were said but I finally had enough and stopped them all in their tracks with this statement.
Can you overdose on prescription drugs? (them) YES
Can you overdose on alcohol? YES
Can you overdose on cocaine? YES
Ok, can you overdose on Pot????? (them) silence......................
Well? Hmmmm, I never thought of that.
I left them scratching their heads on that one and just walked away smiling.
My point of view is that I have seen the many medical benefits and if it helps than why not. In this day and age people are so attached to new technology and drugs that they seem to forget something.
In the dark ages, medicine and other products were derived from plants. One of which was cannabis. Look at any health food store, though some are questionable in product quality, and you will find many natural alternatives to today's synthetic products. I do agree that illegal drugs should be stopped but this should not be in the same category.
By making it legal it can be relegated by the state, gain money for the state in taxes, divert police resources to fighting the hard-core drugs, and by growing and supplying it the need for supplies from the drug lords in Mexico will stop. Hmmm, am I missing something or is there more benefits in the long run here.
Ok, the only true side effect that I know of is that you may go broke from a munchies binge or you may upset your girlfriend by falling asleep!
Ok guys, you are welcome to have at it and let your comments fly!!!!!!
