Pro-marijuana activists have been beating the same drum for years.
If I had a dollar every time I’ve heard or read that “marijuana has never killed anyone” or “not one person has died directly from using marijuana.”
It typically is the number one point made by marijuana advocates when the discussion centers around marijuana legalization.
The truth is when it comes to kids, there are numerous studies that reveal damaging effects to the brains of adolescent marijuana smokers.
Adults are another story, and we are not talking about marijuana.
Now, the health minister of British Columbia says that pure MDMA or ecstasy is relatively safe and it’s only been tainted by gang street chemists.
I’m not sure why there is always a push to legalize all substances.
How about we continue to push the message that all drugs are bad. They are unhealthy one way or another.
There will always be someone with a title or a degree who stands up for any type of drug being safe. But what’s important is that nearly all of those advocates would agree that drugs for the adolescent are damaging.
Ravers and ecstasy indulgers will love this news. But we have to think about the 12 and 13 year olds who are starting to use in middle school.
This teen drug use must be prevented. Adults making choices is a whole other situation.
