    Please read this paper from Harvard regarding the health concerns regarding marijuana. Health_Concerns: WHAT ARE THE MEDICAL DANGERS OF MARIJUANA USE? https://cyber.harvard.edu/evidence99/marijuana/Health_1.html

      Thank you Patrick. I believe issues of addiction are and should be considered public health issues, and not criminal justice issues. There is no shortage of data and research supporting both sides of the marijuana debate. At the end of the day, I believe it’s use should be legalized and strictly regulated as is alcohol. We can agree to disagree I hope?

        I always enjoy engaging discussions and appreciate opposing positions. with your Very High Commitment to healthy living and especially you positions on pesticides and crops you may find this article informative. Farmers are very concerned on how marijuana cultivation will affect their crops due to new pests, fungi and lack of pesticide controls. This would be contrary to your anti GMO and pesticide use control. The report also touches on other social issues. Newsweek is hardly a conservative organization. https://www.newsweek.com/unexpected-side-effects-legalizing-weed-339931 Warmest Aloha, Pat
