Your Brain on Drugs: Neuroscientists Narc on Legal Marijuana



The legalization of recreational Marijuana is a huge mistake that will cost our society dearly. 
Of course Liberals look forward to benefiting from the fall out and chaos with more government programs for problems they created.     

Weekly Standard reports that heady scent of open-air pot-smoking is just another sign of springtime come to D.C. nowadays. (Move over, cherry blossoms.) Wednesday near dusk I met an otherwise upstanding young guy on the sidewalk in leafy residential Northwest, waiting for a ride with a crackling joint in hand—not an unusual sight, but it was the eve of the "marijuana holiday," I remembered: April 20, or 420, reportedly popularized by goofball friends of Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh.

The District legalized recreational and medical marijuana in 2015, but stodgy Congress is still blocking its recreational commercial sale—which means that girl who called her dealer from the Trader Joe's line the other day might have been breaking the law. On Election Night, California, Massachusetts, Nevada, and Maine legalized recreational marijuana, joining Oregon and Alaska—and Washington state and Colorado, who'd blazed (get it?) the trail back in 2012. But even they've found no functional regulatory framework to manage the mind-altering herb's non-criminal commercial distribution. And there's no simple solution for its dangerous neuropsychological side-effects either, proven to disturb teenagers' growing brains. (Like alcohol and cigarettes, recreational marijuana finds its way into the possession of the wily underaged.)

  1. I think it's no coincidence that Clinton won every state where pot is legal recreationally. The Liberals have long wanted to legalize all drugs through back-door channels, so that their pals in Big Pharma have monopolies and the junkies vote Democrat.

  2. It is the progressives who want to ban drugs because they love big government. The Drug War was started by progressives and Big Pharma supports it. Can't sell as many lab created pills when people can use a plant that works better and has fewer side effects.

    1. They're really doing more what Progressives, Socialists, and Communists always do: they want to take recreational narcotics out of the private sector and monopolize it---either by Big Government or Big Pharma. If one can only obtain a 'fix' from some political or corporate bureaucracy, one is liable to support the Party which supplies it.
