Will the USA in time regret this law?
The Week published an article titled, Why America Will Regret Legalizing Marijuana.
Regret is a powerful sad word, which brings about many similar words and feelings such as anguish, grief, heartache, woe, and other synonyms in a Thesaurus.
The antitheses of regret are wisdom. In a previous post, I replied to a young girl who commented that “experience is the best teacher.” I commented in return, “ experience is one way to learn, however, the best way is to learn wisdom to prevent bad experiences from happening in the first place.”
The subject of this post is to question why we are passing a law that we know is going to cause regret to many users in time. We have medical evidence to prove the use of recreational marijuana will cause regrets to many Americans both users, families, and innocent victims.
