SONOFABITCH OF THE MORNING

"When cannabis is legalized, I hope to see this ratio as one of the parameters printed on the pack. I hope that time isn't too distant; the illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world."
--Great little essay on the joys, benefits and mysteries
of the glorious weed by, of all people, Carl Sagan - Mr. X

It is my understanding that this generation's cannabis is formulated more dangerously than past. ?

If by 'formulated' you mean more knowledgeably grown, and if by 'dangerously' you mean consistently having a bigger kick, I'd say your understanding is correct. But I don't think Carl would have disapproved; he'd just have taken smaller tokes.

Can't imagine the pharmaceutical complex wants to see cannabis possibly replacing many of their chemical meds -- think of the profits they'd lose. The fact it might be more beneficial for some patients and less costly doesn't matter, does it! 'Spose it could contribute to reducing health care costs?
