Re: Legalization of marijuana
How do you keep it out of the hands of the kids if it's easily available. Do you think teenagers will respect the laws? Kids think they are invincible. My wife is a teacher, she has had kids under the age of 12 show up at school with bags of pot; would you want your child experiencing this sort of thing at school. The easier, more socially acceptable drugs become, the more problems will occur. It's a stepping stone to acid, then coke, then heroin for many people. Do we want as a society more people negatively impacted by drug usage? Coming from one who went down that road for a couple years early in my life, grew up, never did it again, but Hep C will kill me someday down the road over it all. I'm not saying throw all pot heads in jail, just to think about the repercussions. When it affects you personally, you see some things differently.
