it’s possible that a large crack down on drug use during the last few decades has created generations that are unaware of the effects of marijuana. this is how I would explain the problematic legalization of pot. too many are unaware of the effects. those of us who grew up in the 70’s and 80’s have a greater understanding of what a pothead is. we know that it is not a matter of simply the time frame when a person is actually smoking the pot. we know the big eyes and the corresponding lack of intelligence. in later years we know how those who were on pot a lot in high school are just no longer around. they didn’t grow up and go on to normal lives…. they disappeared.
I’m not sure what is in the minds of those who wish to legalize pot. but I’m pretty sure they are very unconcerned about the youth. most proponents to legalize pot are those who’ve been smoking marijuana anyway, and hope for the prices to go down. and don’t lose sight of those who are part of the industry to supply it.
I’ve only seen one news article addressing the effects of pot and marijuana on young and developing brains. but the scientific information is there, that use of marijuana creates permanent lower IQ for the youth that use it.
therefore efforts to legalize marijuana is an overt attempt by an older generation to sabotage newer generations to come. it is not rocket science…. simply very very sad.
