Now I know that educating america's youth is a major issue at hand, since education builds the foundation for the country's and the world's future. But I am wondering why our government spends so much time uselessly educating teenagers on the so called "danger" that Marijuana brings into society. As being High (From smoking, eating, or vaporizing) does not cause any violent intentions in it's user's minds (unlike PCP, Crack, or Coke), I cannot see why it is acceptable for the nations public schools to educate kids and teens about the "dangers" of a substance that became illegal because of government corruption and racism. Anyone else agree with this stance? I have received many demerits/detentions for stating medically accepted facts about marijuana in school (in both health and chemistry class), I am tired of our government failing to accept that it was wrong in the past and it is time for change, and I am even more angry at the fact that they refuse to accept every single study that says marijuana is not harmful to the users and that it has MANY accepted medical uses. Does anyone see an issue with this part of our school systems?
