The Canadian federal government’s bill C-45 to legalize marijuana in Canada will jeopardize the health of young people and Parliament should vote against it, argues a new article.

Big Pharma is at it again.  “Toxic to neurons”, says the Editor of CMAJ.  Crock-o-shit, because cannabis has been shown to aid in neurogenesis– the opposite of what she says.  This purported toxicity has been debunked many times in the past.

Add to all this, show me a teenager that cannot acquire cannabis if she or he wants it.  It’s ludicrous to assume that if something ubiquitous as cannabis is illegal, that it cannot easily be obtained.  Legalizing it will just take the criminality of it away.  Think how many young lives are damaged by overzealous cops and school administrators “setting examples” and giving kids criminal records.

AuntieBS does not endorse young people getting high, but is realistic enough to understand the anti-cannabis BS from Big Pharma.  Government should stay out of the anti-drug business and instead teach young people that getting high is just another distraction from much more important activities.  The best deterrent to drug abuse is for people to choose to avoid them.  AuntieBS readers most likely avoid opiates because they are fully aware of the downsides of addiction, and choose to avoid them, despite knowing the attractive euphoria it produces.  They simply choose to not go down that road.  Adults must take responsibility to teach young people the facts, not exaggerated scare stories and lies, to help ensure that they avoid intoxicants, much like has been successfully done in Portugal over the past decade or longer.  Get government out of the anti-drug business!
