The week in weed: This week we’ve got a mish-mash of stories. States are beginning to really recognize that marijuana arrests have been mostly racially driven. I don’t know if a pardon is as good as expungement, but it’s a start on a road that should have been traveled decades ago. States are also beginning to recognize that the ‘criminalization’ of weed was not the right thing to do. It’s time to recognize that cannabis is just there. It’s always been a part of human culture and turning it into a ‘hippie’ drug was not appropriate.

There are still the naysayers in the crowd, who think it should still be illegal. Then they bring up the specious argument about all the societal problems. This argument is specious because taking all the arguments for the three main drugs; alcohol, cannabis and nicotine it would be clear which ones should be ‘banned.’ It’s not cannabis. Sure, there are plenty of problems with weed, but they’re not as bad as alcohol, tobacco or other legal drugs…think opioids. Society will always have issues with drugs. There have been drug problems for over 5,000 years. It’s not going away, so let’s get sane.
