Since pot seems to be one of the main topics on this forum, I thought I would post this:
As if it were the only drug that can provide them relief. I don’t buy that. Just legalize it already.
Unfortunately, we can never just “do” something that makes sense in this country. Every change must be dragged out out over years or decades through a glacial change process, until everyone’s “ready” to handle it. The only time we do anything quickly is when we’ve screwed things up royally and we’re in a panic (the bailouts). And then it usually isn’t done right. I’m sorry to sound negative, but this is how I feel sometimes.
