NO. Too many studies show marijuana damages the developing brain, critical planning, judgment, decision making, personality, these are the last areas to fully develop around 25 years of age. In immature teens the endocannabinoid system this compromises neurodevelopment, stress response and emotional control. Teens have a hard enough time trying to avoid common problems and to compound these with a drug that will guarantee brain function loss is crazy. To legalize marijuana will make it easier for teens to get it. The democrats are big on protecting us from ourselves, like limiting consumption of sugar and sizes of our drinks. This is the democrats chance to make money, 5% tax to go into a Opportunity Trust Fund. Whoo! Whose hand will be in that till? Job training for the substance abused that will be legally getting drugs. If they can’t get/keep a job now, what kind of training will that be? Loans for small businesses in marijuana industry for the socially economically disadvantaged? This will make it easier for the drug dealers to sell where they are already selling. GREAT IDEA!!!
