.. and meanwhile, legalization of Marijuana will allow many young people to lead normal lives without being branded as drug felons. .. and never will a young person accidentally shoot a brother or sister with a joint.
Listen, it's a drug, whether it's called medicinal, or not. And what do we do with our medicine? We keep it away from children. Don't leave your pot brownies next to the chocolate granola bars! That being said, I would rather a kid get into the brownies, as opposed to a bottle of pills. My dog ate 3/4 pan of pot brownies once. We didn't know he ate them, and thought he was sick. When we 'fessed up to the vet, he scoffed, and said "don't worry about it, he'll be fine, just needs to sleep it off". 80lb dog, lots of brownies, no worries.
uh oh! The kids were tired and goofy. The horror! Let's compare that with kids getting into alcohol or pills, which could poison them and even cause death. You won't read about that, but you will read about the "horrors" of MJ.
How many of these kids actually ODed on weed?
Why Minnesota has not legalized medical marijuana is beyond me. There are risks to all medications and it is up to the parents to supervise their kids. That is not our job. If the parents are not able to, address that issue. Time for Minnesota to legalize medical marijuana.
By this logic you can say having guns (or practically any product) in the house leads to injury to kids therefore guns should be banned.
