There is a move on the Left to legalize marijuana or to make it less punishable. Marijuana is a path to harder drugs. It is proven that it is addictive and can lead to the hard stuff.
As a teenager, I saw the beginning of the drug culture. I heard about the "nuts" like many of Barack Obama's friends who experimented with marijuana.
I also heard my sons talk about kids at their school in the 80s who did the same. They were tempted by these "potheads" but always said no. Thank God our family was and is rooted in right versus wrong. Our kids, now in their 30s and 40s, were smart enough to avoid the stupidity of drugs!
