There are some strange attitudes about cannabis down here

I have a lot of friends in the US, so I tend to visit once or twice a year. In most ways I love this country! There are a few things that give me pause, however. As much as I like to visit, I’m not sure I could ever live here. It’s not entirely about weed, but that does play a factor. In Canada the attitudes about marijuana are very different than they are down here. The weirdest part to me is that a great many people use religion as a way to disparage cannabis. First of all, I am not sure why churches have any say in what the government decides, about marijuana or any other matter. I thought this country had a separation of church and state, but that only exists on paper. Currently there is a big surge in marijuana legalization across this country, and that’s a good start. I know for a fact that thousands of people are still in prison because of cannabis possession. If the US was serious about making amends with the cannabis community, they would immediately release all these prisoners and expunge their records. There was never a legitimate reason for cannabis to be illegal – not one single legit reason, ever! You can challenge me on that if you want, but you’ll lose the argument, because there has never been a proven link between cannabis and crime. The most insane part of all is that it took years of battling to make cannabis legal, but at the same time Big Pharma fills the TV screens with ads for harmful drugs.
