Good grief. We. Know that cannabis is not harmful to the adult mind and we know it’s helpful for many physical and mental conditions. Old white men have demonized the “weed” and used it to incarcerate thousands of young people - mostly people of color. It’s one of the factors that has led the US to have the highest prison population in the world. Possession and use of cannabis in a non- violent situation should be decriminalized, these people shouldn’t be in prison. They should be released to their families, helped to find jobs, and join the ranks of supporting members of society. Good grief. I still think that the cannabis conundrum stems as much from racism as anything else.
