Representative Rohrabacher couldn’t be more right. It is destructive to have a government allegedly striving to solve the opioid crisis and yet at every turn tries to deny the usefulness of medical marijuana in accomplishing this. More than half the states have legalized medical cannabis and many have decriminalized or legalized recreational cannabis and this demonstrates that the opinion of Americans is changing about cannabis. The people see its medicinal and economic value and are asking for change, yet the current administration has rejected the requests of the people and denied the science behind cannabis’ efficacy as medicine, and all because of paranoid propaganda.
Legalization is where we’re heading, whether our government likes it or not.
