Increased Marijuana Smoking Also Coincides With Fewer Fatalities…

…according to some recent research, at least. You can read all about it in The Wall Street Journal HERE. Marijuana prohibition is essentially the same thing as alcohol Prohibition. Neither have worked, and both have succeeded in creating HUGE social problems that are worse than the supposed harm caused by people exercising their inalienable American …

More meanderings from on this: Despite the (still) prevailing hawkishness within the GOP, I feel that the tides are turning.
