One Impact of Legalizing Marijuana as Medicine

December 16, that must be in any law that legalizes marijuana. If voters in any state take that step two years from now, we want to make absolutely certain that a commercial marijuana industry cannot market or sell the drug to anyone under age 21.

    Whatever one’s position on the usage or legalization of marijuana, what thinking person can believe that use of marijuana by minors is not detrimental and dangerous? Multiple studies have shown that the human brain does not reach it’s full development until sometime in the mid-twenties. How can we not be concerned about increasing use of (literally) mind-altering substances by young people, much less countenance a change that can only increase that use further?

    Pitkin County, Colorado (Aspen), not generally a high crime area, experienced a 300% crime increase following the introduction of legal “medical” marijuana.

    If you support legalization, visit Potlegalization.com and tell us why.

    I wish more people would write blogs like this that are really fun to read. With all the fluff floating around on the net, it is rare to read a blog like this instead.

    I really appreciate your website. I never knew the best way to keep kids from using drugs is to lie to them about the consequences. I find the approach of “Just Say No!” incredibly useful as it satisfies two important criteria, firstly it’s simple ( and as we all know kids are stupid so lessons must be kept simple) and secondly it requires almost no research and knowledge on the part of the parent. This theory of just say no combined with not providing education is fantastic, it is probably safe to say it can be applied to anything parents don’t want their kid doing.

    -What utter garbage. Hey lets nurf the world and let the govt raise the nations children. Just because a thing can be abused doesn’t mean that thing is inherently bad. There needs to be a website called http://www.butwhatabouttheparents.com, it instructs parents on how to wake up and start being a part of their child’s life, lead by example. It’s websites like this that make me genuinely afraid of the direction the United States is taking.

    The impact won’t be different from the impact when tobacco and alcohol were introduced in the society.

    Despite the different opinions about using medicinal cannabis for treatment, people with serious ailments can testify that it relieved them from the painful and debilitating symptoms and provide them a functional life.
