One of the saddest things I have seen in my lifetime is the legalization of marijuana in many US states. It just does not make medical sense. We have seen now 2 deaths in local patients from adulterated marijuana. In the Netherlands, where I have many friends and family, marijuana is a scourge! Many students have lost their minds, committed suicide, and lived “lost” for years addicted to this poison.
For a state population to pass this as legal is malpractice! It is not meant for the general population and should only be used in medically-necessary cases.
