POT: Higher costs ahead

Print Article

Thereís much discussion on recreational marijuana as more and more states vote to make it legal. Can any good come from this? I think not. Why would any rational person want to smoke something that causes them to look stupid, act strange, and be obnoxious, unhealthy and spacey? Oh, I know, itís THEIR bodies and they can choose to do whatever they please! Itís kind of like a womanís ďright to chooseĒ ó itís HER body and she demands the right to take her babyís life. Amazingly, both are legal but it makes no sense to me at all. Maybe Iím getting old or maybe Iím the stupid one. Letís think a moment: Would ANY employer knowingly hire a person who smokes marijuana? If they do, how could they possibly use them anywhere to do anything? Letís take this a little further ó could marijuana usage lead to meth or cocaine or whatever else is more desirable? YEP! Now, a bit further, if nobody will hire them and their parentsí money runs out and their health deteriorates, what now?

The millions being raised by taxing marijuana will be just peanuts compared to the health care costs for those with pickled brains. You donít believe me? Just observe a marijuana smoker on TV or anywhere else. Many are nice people but would you hire one to baby-sit your child or even your dog? Not if YOU have a brain! Folks, our nation is going to hell in a handbasket ó full of weed!
