What Leadership degree did a MD state King Solomon did not have, yet did have, in order to make wise doctorate decisions?
The Chicago Tribune article titled, U.S. health officials move to tighten sense of e-cigarettes, reported “US health regulators are moving ahead with a plan to designed to keep e-cigarettes out of the hands of teenagers……. etc.
When a king sits on his throne to judge, he winnows out all evil with his eyes. (Proverb 20:8)
Long life is in her (Wisdom) right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. (Proverb 3:16)
My son, keep your father’s command and do not forsake your mother’s teaching. (Proverb 6:20)
What’s My Point?
The issue of smoking or ingesting any drug for recreational purposes in human lungs or body is foolish health wise. No wise or loving father or mother would recommend any child engage in these bad health wise risky habits for recreational purposes only.
However, every parent should know how impressionable and foolish a child can be once they experience any form of pleasure in life. Especially, at a time in their life where wise discernment of the risks they take to seek pleasure or acceptance from peers.
My point is anyone in a leadership role who approves a law to make any known harmful substance become more available for recreational use is not wise. Any legislator who believes that by doing so will to reduce crime and will not increase the health and social risks exponentially for every adolescent does not possess the winnowing eyes of wise leadership discernment, in my opinion,
In My Opinion
“Build a ball park and they will come,” aphorism is applicable to this issue. Or in other words, when you increase supply of any recreational enterprise that brings about pleasure, whether it be a healthy sports entertainment pleasures, or a harmful drug because the more available the recreational product becomes, the greater number of people will indulge in seeking pleasure in life, whether wholesome or debilitating.
Exponentially our society will be better off health and economic wise to not pass any laws to approve selling recreational marijuana, or vaping products, or hard drugs. This is because in time the costs to society will increase exponentially to cure the health and society problems which will result especially in if a person begins in their adolescent years.
Ask any MD for their personal opinion of the medical history of cigarettes health issues and costs for previous cigarette smokers patients they are now experiencing in their offices who are on Medicare or Medicaid.
Answer to the MD Wisdom Riddle
“King Solomon did not have a university degree, but had a doctorate in common sense.” Matshona Dhliwayoo
Read the articles on this issue in the Source Links below.
Is it wise or foolish, or common sense to pass law to make harmful substances more available to impressionable adolescents even if the law states age limits?
Exponentially, which is worse economically, passing laws to obtain tax revenue from selling a s medically proven harmful substance will not result over time in higher medical costs by taxpayers in the future?
Or allow everybody free choice to harm themselves and then make taxpayers pay the costs and road risks similar to DUI or drugged drivers?
Or to make taxpayers pay for the folly of people who risk health and welfare because of lack of common sense?
