Dennis Prager writes a fascinating piece about what’s happening in Colorado. With recreational use of marijuana now legal, more and more teens are lighting up.
"When something desirable is made easier to obtain, more people will obtain it. It is difficult to imagine an exception to this common sense observation.
“So, legalizing marijuana is foolish because it leads to far more use of the drug and the availability of ever more potent forms. But the foolishness doesn't end there. Equally foolish is that as a society we have made peace with marijuana while making war on tobacco. This has been a classic example of upside down thinking, and we are reaping exactly what we have sown. We have produced a generation of young Americans who would never put a cigarette or cigar near their lips but who increasingly get high on pot.”
Prager then makes the case that given a choice, it would be less dangerous if young folks smoke cigarettes rather than joints. Oh, and that liberals have essentially wrecked America over the past 40 years.
It’s a great column.
Here’s the TV news segment Prager writes about.
