The marijuana thing again. Eck.
It's a drug. It's a useful drug with appropriate applications. It should be standardized with respect to purity and dosage, and sold in pharmacies subject to the same rules as work for other non-opiate "addictive" substances. The resistance to the proper use of the stuff is all politics and hysteria. And it's annoyed me for decades, now. It's a drug, it belongs in the pharmacy, my doctor should be able to prescribe it.
And if the FDA would just come around to my entirely reasonable point of view, the amateur recreational use of the herb would then logically fall into the same "recreational use" category as the recreational use of other prescription drugs.
My other objection to the use of marijuana is mostly that I distrust amateur growers about as much as I distrust amateur chemists. How clean are they, how pure is the product, is it free of contaminants like bug spray, and so forth.
For recreational use, I view rules similar to those that apply to alcohol as a reasonable set of restrictions. Folk that are high don't need to be driving, operating machinery, etc.
This is like when I argue contraception with the Pope. Neither the Pope nor the FDA want to listen to me
