Legalize MJ and then find out the huge effects it has on psychosis and many other mental disorders... wait I thought we wanted to get people better mental healthcare not throw them further into a mental health spiral including the onset of schizophrenia and many other things. Beyond that due to it's long half life in the human body once consumed, it depresses cognitive function a measurable degree for approximately 30 days.
But at the same time as proponents want to legalize this drug that can cause long term mental health problems while lowering cognitive function, the same proponents want to introduce single payer healthcare?
One or the other. I have no problem if people want to take that risk, but I refuse to pay your healthcare bills, or subsidize your means of living while you handy cap yourself. On the other hand if you want me to help pay your healthcare bills or subsidize your means of living, all recreational drugs should be banned and heavily punished.
Wanting both at the same time is absolutely abhorrent, illogical, and counterproductive.
How many millions are spent, and how many millions of people are effected with the dancers of smoking, alcohol and sugar?
It's not just about smoking marijuana. There are loads of health benafits when it comes to marijuana, so why should it be illegal?
As for things like schizophrenia. There is no evidence that smoking marijuana causes schizophrenia. I could be a trigger for people who were always going to get it, but it does not cause
It amazes me that people say this about marijuana, when we have legal substances like cigarettes, alcohol and sugar
But i say it again! This is not just about smoking
marijuana. It's about the other health benafits of this plant.
