“大麻不能杀了你”是大麻社会上流行的副歌, 原因很明显. 不同于几乎地球上所有其他物质, 你都不能消耗足够的大麻过量而死.
当然, 其他任何事情一样, 吸食大麻可以启动一连串的事件导致你死亡. 例如, 如果你正在做一个民建联 3RD 楼的阳台上，你采取过大的一个打击，并获得头晕和脱落阳台, 你可能会死. 你可以噎死一个非常干锅布朗尼. 生命是奇怪，奇怪的事情发生的时间.
然后，有可能来自大麻使用可避免的死亡, 像患者的情况下谁 被拒绝的器官移植 因为他们所选择的医疗大麻. 人不可数数量已经给出更小的机会在生活，因为他们选择了一个更安全的替代危险和令人上瘾的处方药.
大麻合法化将解决其中的一些问题, others it would not. You still might need some milk for that brownie, regardless of its legality. And the fact that substances that are much more dangerous than marijuana and kill tens of thousands of people every year can be bought on most store shelves is a ridiculous set of circumstances, but even the proven safety of marijuana is not the main reason it should be legal.
Cannabis should be legal because the people who possess, consume, grow and sell it are not infringing on the rights of anyone else. Now, here is where many will begin talking about societal implications of marijuana use and claim someone else will be paying for the decision later, so rights are being infringed, etc.
The problem with that line of logic is that it can be applied to just about anything. Someone deciding to eat 10 Big Macs a month could very well be making a decision other people will end up paying for down the road. The federal government could ban Big Macs, and all other unhealthy foods, but who decides what is unhealthy and how that would be enforced? Are we going to prohibit all foods with a certain fat content or a certain number of calories? And all because some people will abuse the privilege of being able to eat as many Big Macs as they want?
As I’ve said before, if you don’t want to pay for the mistakes of others, take it up with the lawmakers who force you to. The alternative is banning every single thing that could cause harm to anyone.
Is that a world you would want to live in?
