On this issue of cannabis I have gone from tacitly supporting prohibition. To supporting decriminalization. To supporting legalization. (This was over many years.) It has become obvious to me that the continued restrictions on marijuana really are about lining the pockets of cronies within the government and outside of it, particularly in Pharma.
I will say that no drug is totally “safe.” And pot can cause dependence on a psychological level. But generally, well, let’s be adults about things.
