No. One of my best friends in high-school was destroyed by it, and my son, years later in California, had a friend who became “perma-stoned.” I also had a lot of friends who lost a lot of time to it...because it was considered “harmless” and there were, in fact, no penalties for using it. Maybe selling, but still cool to use...and in fact, I knew people in the 80s in CA who were feeding it to their children in cookies. They thought it was “healthy.”
It’s not healthy, especially for adolescents, but social approval by the left has promoted it. We wouldn’t approve this use for alcohol, so why approve it for a substance which is quite possibly more dangerous?
Also, a family member who is a LEO in a state that legalized pot a few years ago said that in 100% of the fatal automobile accidents, there was marijuana in the blood of one of the drivers involved. It’s only fairly recently that they’ve developed a fast field test for marijuana use, but again, that’s because pot use is so PC that nobody has dared to go there and challenge the narrative.
Statewide? I call Bravo Sierra.

Nobody proposed legally approving such uses of pot - and your stories show that criminalization didn't prevent extralegal approval.
So what else was your best friend using? Most heads were not just smoking pot back in the day. Everyone I knew would use nearly anything available at least once, twice.
Don’t believe the LEO account. Nothing is 100%, there would be states with zero traffic fatalities to balance this state.
Evidently, judging from the post by marijuana users/apologists, marijuana use quickly kills off those brain cells that alert to its dangers and replaces them with alien malware.
Marijuana IS a GATEWAY DRUG. My brother a struggling heroin addict, clean for 3 years now, says so. I asked him if it was just an excuse, which addicts are always making, and he said that 9 out of 10 heroin addicts in every counseling session over his 25 year addiction say it all started with smoking a joint and getting high. It started a chase for the next, better, high.
Smoking pot doesn’t mean you will become an heroin addict, however, it certainly facilitates the possibility.
If Pot use proliferates you will inevitably see more serious addictions.
100% of accidents one or both drivers have pot in their systems?
Utter codswallop. Show the blood work.
That is the same kind of nonsense that the MADD cows with their “alcohol involved” lies.
“Alcohol involved” means that there was booze in one of the involved, whether it’s a person, bicycle, or vehicle. I pick up a bottle of wine on my way home for dinner, and some old lady t-bones me, THAT is now considered alcohol involved.
An associate of mine nearly lost his job because of the alcohol involved thing, even though he was absolutely sober.
Seriously, is that the kind of world you want to leave our progeny? Lies and propaganda, with the rule of knee-jerk emotion?
” a family member who is a LEO in a state that legalized pot a few years ago said that in 100% of the fatal automobile accidents”
He lied to you.
That statistic doesn’t hold up in any state.
