Happy 420 Day!

I really should be posting an app review right about now but 4/20 only comes around once a year, and that means it’s time for my short, once-a-year Legalize It rant!

I honestly don’t smoke pot and I’m lucky enough to not have anyone close to me suffering from pains that medical marijuana could alleviate, but I still think it’s ridiculous that the vast majority of states in the U.S. of A view the use of medical marijuana as a crime. Quite frankly, if it were up to me, I’d legalize marijuana and regulate it the same way alcohol and cigarettes are regulated. I believe people have the right to get high, just like they have the right to get drunk and/or light up a cigarette, and on top of that a whole lot of medical suffering would be curbed as a result. And then there’s the avalanche of tax dollars that would follow. Sigh.

I’m not running for public office here, but this issue is something to think about. And since it’s 4/20, you might as well think about it today! Think about why a plant that has both recreational and medical applications is still being demonized in modern society. Doesn’t make sense, does it?
