1. This is the standard line out of US Christian conservatism, that marijuana destroys lives, families, communities, and that supposedly the data to support this in incontrovertible. But when you actually look at their information it’s either decades outdated or ruthlessly cherrypicked.

    There’s a lot of doublethink going on in the cannabis opposition movement. For instance, they don’t like the idea that allowing medical marijuana brings marijuana into our communities, which is ridiculous because marijuana is already in our communities, just easier to obtain by minors through the black market than it would be if regulated.

    It’s cool that Christian conservatives are willing to fight to keep our communities strong, but this effort would be more admirable if it were based on more up-to-date, objective information.

    If they took a more reasonable position, it would be easier to take their objections and grave concerns more seriously.
