Comment Your Thoughts on Marijuana Legalization Below
The controversial marijuana legislation may see some movement with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer announcing that the Democrats are ready to push forward.
He said in an interview, “He [Biden] said he’s studying the issue, so [I] obviously want to give him a little time to study it. I want to make my arguments to him, as many other advocates will. But at some point, we’re going to move forward, period.”
It is hinted that during the Presidential campaign, Biden didn’t support the legalization of marijuana, and soon after holding office, he apparently disqualified staffers because of drug consumption.
Unbelievable, right? LOL
However, many seem to oppose Schumer’s statements arguing that the drug’s legalizations have led to several problems such as a spurt in crime rates and worsening in medical conditions of their parents.
Emergency room doctors in Colorado discussed the negative impact of marijuana on their patients. The medical experts told about an increase in all drug use, encompassing marijuana with Methamphetamine use rising by 143 percent, opiates, and cannabis up by 10 percent and 57 percent respectively. Data from the ER drug screens over the past seven years supported this argument.
Dr. Karen Randall told: “If you pump a community full of drugs, you’re going to have to expect everything that’s associated with them. You’re going to have to expect the crime, addiction.”
He further said: “We’re the canary in the coal mine. Our kids are failing. Our kids are using drugs more. I can’t find health care for them. I can’t find rehab. I can’t find places to put the kids in foster care.”
THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is considered the main psychoactive ingredient in today’s marijuana products and is now being extracted to achieve a potency of more than 80 percent. In the 1990s, the average potency of a joint was around 4 percent THC.
