Stop Pretending Marijuana Prohibition Protects Children

We must protect our kids from the scourge of marijuana.

Brooks argued last week that even though he smoked pot in high school, Colorado is wrong to legalize pot because governments should aim to “subtly encourag[e]the highest pleasures, like enjoying the arts or being in nature, and discourag[e]lesser pleasures, like being stoned.”

While pot can definitely muck with a teen’s development, Harper and Brooks both miss the greater danger the drug poses to young people here and around the world: crime and its consequences.
