Forum: Marijuana confusion
The number of states legalizing the sale and use of medical marijuana is growing rapidly. This is rather confusing to say the least.
It’s confusing because most of the country is against smoking, especially cigarettes, primarily due to the health risks and effects of secondhand smoke. But smoking marijuana is OK?
To add to the mix is the fact that marijuana is an intoxicant, not to mention a gateway drug. Are we nuts or what?
Smoking has been banned just about everywhere except in open areas away from people. Yet we are advocating the use of marijuana, which is probably more harmful medically than cigarette smoking.
To add to the confusion, federal law makes the growing, use and sale of marijuana illegal.
This makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
