  1. Excellent! From the people that brought us the Iraq War, we now have a defense of the Drug War. If we just throw in another two or three or 10 trillion in taxpayer dollars, surely victory is near at hand. Don't give up now, America!

  2. My friend (a doctor) had a close family member who killed himself from psychosis. He was already predisposed for psychosis, but everyone blames marihuana for his death. Anyone with a predisposition for this mental health issue should be careful of the increased risk with marihuana use. However, for a balanced approach to public health, arguing against legalisation seems disingenuous and unfair against the overwhelming benefits marihuana has on treating pain and opioid addiction which the federal government seems perfectly happy to promote as the preferred drug (not medicine) for chronic pain sufferers.

  4. Puritanism is a disease. Ban that. Then the rest of us can get on with our lives in peace.

  7. Looks and sounds like a relevant, smart discussion on a emotionally charged issue. I would agree with the featured author but I know several people who would not. If THC has been causing psychosis AND violent outbursts of users these are facts, not opinions. Perhaps some of the gun violence is caused by pot, but people seem to blame guns.
