Marijuana Is Harmful: Debunking 7 Myths Arguing It’s Fine
This is a great short and sweet article by Kevin Sabet found by way of the Heritage Foundation on Debunking7 Myths Arguing the Legalization of Marijuana is Fine, found in its entirety by clicking on the link above…
one that I found particularly fascinating (although it also made me shudder) was Mr. Sabet’s point about the legalization of alcohol.
He points out that the argument for legalization for marijuana is due to our laws allowing alcohol, which presupposes that said alcohol laws are “good.” What made me shudder was the thought of alcohol NOT being legal…I know right?
However, I have to agree with most of his assertions that legalizing marijuana is not a good thing and as I pointed in my last post, I find it odd and rather disconcerting that what I learned while taking classes on urban planning at my local community college about the Netherlands and Sweden social experiments; the so-called “wonder” of liberalized drug laws and social engineering have all been dis-proven. Yet, those same failed “experiments” are still being touted as success stories on liberal campuses by crack-pot “professors” all across our fruit-cake laden planes.
I have YET to figure out WHY after we fought a war to gain our independence from the idiocy of England & by extension Europe, we now find ourselves following in their idiotic social engineering footsteps again…
Could we as a people/country/society puh-lease just recognize that WE up until this point in time have had the better form of government and ideas and can we stop trying to progress our way backwards into european mediocracy?
