Not Everyone is Buying Marijuana

Not everyone is on board with marijuana legalization in this country. There are many who believe that the side effects outweigh the good.

Legalizing marijuana sends the wrong message to young people, R. Gil Kerlikowske, Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), said this week. “We are certainly not sending a very good message when we call it medicine and legalize it,” he told The Oregonian.

ONDCP claims marijuana to be addictive and unsafe, especially for use by young people. Marijuana, which was recently legalized in Colorado and Washington, remains illegal under federal law. Kerlikowske pointed to a 2012 survey that found 7.4 percent of California drivers tested positive for marijuana use - more than for alcohol.

“It is clear that we’re in the midst of a serious national conversation about marijuana”, wrote Kerlikowske in a recent ONDCP web post.
