As the rest of the world is starting to learn the real truth about cannabis after years of misinformation, we are still wasting time chasing a drug which does less harm than aspirin and is less toxic than coffee.

Perhaps cannabis use should be legalised, because it is less harmful than either alcohol or tobacco. The lawmakers have taken this approach in many of the states in USA. ( p.s. I am not a user, but I might consider doing so if i fell ill. )
