30 Days of Truth - Day 20

Day 20 → Your views on drugs and alcohol.

I've lived in the States and in Australia, and while the laws are different, I still think we have very backwards views on things.

For example: Alcohol is toxic to every organ in your body, and it is legal. Marijuana (just pure marijuana without crap added) is perfectly fine and it is illegal.

Another example: Alcohol is addictive - an addiction that can get passed through families. You could sit and eat marijuana cookies all day long and all you would get is twenty pounds and a nice buzz.

Tell me why we sell alcohol and not marijuana.

I'm just using the examples of general alcohol and marijuana because those are easiest to talk about. There are wine coolers you could claim never hurt anyone and there are other drugs that are the scourge of the Earth. But lumping all alcohol and all drugs into firm categories is like saying that one diet works for all people.

It just doesn't work like that.
