“Don’t worry, it’s harmless”

…is what the marijuana crowd has been telling us since I was a toddler in the Eisenhower Administration.  Well, if the States are a Laboratory for Democracy, I’d say that the Marijuana Experiment is crashing from the “unexpected” side effects.

Peter Hitchens, writing in The Spectator comments

Marijuana has been the beneficiary of one of the slickest, most sustained advertising campaigns in human history. Not only do millions believe it is some sort of medicine. Most people, even law enforcers, describe it as a ‘soft’ drug. This is an absurdity. Lifelong mental illness is not a ‘soft’ outcome.

Why, it’s almost as if it were a big scam, and Big Dope didn’t give a sh*t about their customers.  Pointers to the real dope shows up in Rod Dreher’s review of Alex Berenson’s new book Tell Your Children.

Tip from Ed Driscoll writing at the Instapundit.  Read the comments to see a microcosm of all the self-serving arguments about marijuana.
