The marijuana issue is one of the most irritating stupidities in this nation. Let me help confuse matters:
1. Periodically i review the literature almost in the hope that someone will fu8nd something as "bad" about pot as ... well say, coffee. No way Jose. The worst I can find is this:
a. some possible loss of reflexes after years and tears of use with no evidence that this loss has any functional significance. Certainly less than the effects of getting older.
b. a reasonabkle suspicion that joints geenrates oem cola tars, like any other smoled vegetable matter, and therefore might contribute to cancer (no evidence just might).
c. when raised over one's head, a heavy bail of MJ, can .. whehn suddenly released, be lethal. (true story).
So, my best guess, as a scientist whose expertise makes it possible to read this literature, is that MJ is great in brownies. BTW fine chocolate also has THC so next time valentines day, ..
2. Given our many other arbitrary laws ... against prostitution, polyandry and polygamy, use of FUCKPISSSHIT but not HATEGUNSKILL on TV, public nudity, spanking kids, breast feeding, display of lingerie, trespassing on waterfront properties, consumption of horse meat, suicide, tits on the tube, foot tapping in public restrooms, hate speech,
and given our laws that PERMIT
Tobacco, Nyquil, Nodoze, motorcycles, guns, religious obsession, symbolic eating of divine flesh (funny this is OK but "devil worship" is not), mountian climbing, professional boxing and football, FAUX TV, sitcoms, Reilly, pro wrestling, Limbaugh, loud music, excess perfume .....
I guess a law against marijuana is pretty consistent with the rest of it.
PSSSSST ...please keep the THC content of chocolate a SECRET. My wife wold kill me if anything I did led to her vitamin C becoming illegal!
"Christian Felder at the National Institute of Mental Health estimates that a 130-pound person would have to eat 25 pounds of chocolate at one time to get any marijuana-like effect. "
