Zako: “No” to Recreational Marijuana

In his latest piece, Lou Zako, the conservative columnist for the Petoskey News-Review, opines about the legalization of the recreational use of marijuana.

Dr. Zako, who is also a semi-retired physician, writes, “There is a growing body of evidence of the damage to the brains of teenagers from regular marijuana usage, and a growing number of traffic accidents and deaths due to driving by those who are ‘stoned.’ Further, the confusion over the legal status of marijuana usage, with it currently being illegal under federal law, while legal under state law in a number of states, leads to the same confused ‘public approach to this issue as the example of illegal immigration being ‘illegal’ under federal law, while ‘legal’ in some states and some cities. For those who doubt that marijuana is a gateway drug to addiction by narcotics and other hard drugs, I would challenge the reader to talk to a number of addicts or recovering addicts for their views on this question.”

As is said on the internets, read the whole thing!

P.S. Here is the language of the 2018 Michigan initiative that, if it passes, would regulate marijuana like alcohol.
