Hot Topic – Marijuana Legalization
Where I was born and raised, Palacios, Texas, “Mary Jane” (marijuana) use was
somewhat limited to musicians like Janis Joplin, strippers like Candy Barr and patrons of cantinas.
I don’t dismiss the possibility one of my Palacios ISD classmates used the stuff, but I never actually knew anyone who did. For the record: no, unlike my president, I have never used marijuana.
Hemp smoking became legal, at least by state standards, in several states. Federal challenges will probably wait for another president to come to office.
The premise for legalizing marijuana: “It’s way lots safer than a lot of things, like alcohol.” or “It doesn’t harm anyone.” “Legalizing marijuana will free up prison space.”
What is the truth?
