Madness... Reefer Madness, that is...

Okay, I seem to be on a marijuana kick... not smoking it... blogging about it... This will be number three in the last two weeks...

I'm struck by the former drug cop who is marketing a DVD to help people not get busted. He's moving beyond just talking about it, and he's doing something about it... Although I wonder if providing a DVD to people who are trying to circumvent law enforcement is really going to change policy in America.

From an article titled "Cannabis, Mental Health and Context: The Case For Regulation,"
The phrase "relatively safe" is appropriate in any discussion regarding cannabis and mental health. No substance is harmless and in many cases, the relative dangers of a drug may be increased or decreased depending on set and setting. Cannabis is no different.
Okay, perhaps the folks over at NORML have a bit of a bias, but they have a point: everything has dangers. Everything. Perhaps we ought to outlaw Diet Coke, tobacco, sugar, trains, planes, automobiles, cell phones, and computers.
