        The statistics cited are concerning, to say the least. From the rising rates of daily use to the alarming increase in marijuana-related emergency visits for minors, it's definitely a cause for concern. But let's not forget, there's also a lot of misinformation out there about marijuana. While I'm not denying the risks, I think it's important to approach this issue with nuance.

            For instance, while there's evidence of increased potency and addiction, we also need to consider the potential benefits of medical cannabis, especially for those suffering from chronic conditions. Speaking of medical cannabis, have you seen the prices for it in the UK? It's shockingly high, pun intended. It's almost as if the legal system is pushing people towards the black market with those weed prices. It's crucial that regulations are in place to prevent easy access for minors.

              Let's also consider that 99% of folks use weed to get high. Breaking news.

                  Democrat Oregon governor signs bill recriminalizing hard drugs, completing liberal experiment's U-turn
                  The signing of the bill ends the liberal drug policy and will take effect in September



                  Oregon has legislatively completed its U-turn on a short-lived liberal policy that decriminalized the possession of small amounts of certain drugs.


                  Oregon Gov. Tina Kotek, a Democrat, on Monday signed into law a bill that reverses Measure 110, a 2020 law that voters approved to decriminalize most illegal possession of controlled substance offenses and redirect much of the state's marijuana tax revenue to fund grants for addiction services.


                  Around 58% of Oregon residents approved the initial measure but since then, addiction and overdose deaths have skyrocketed in Oregon and nationwide as fentanyl swept across the country. In August, 56% of Oregonians said they disapproved of the pioneering drug law and both Republicans and Democrats introduced legislation to roll back the controversial measure.

                      What is really needed is proper and complete medical research into what component(s) is(are) beneficial for the multitude of conditions that it is claimed to help with. And also to determine if there might be a better means of delivery that has no potential for second exposure to others that smoking does. We see a lot of information about the effect of second hand tobacco smoke on others, especially children. But what about second hand cannabis smoke. Is there any research into the correlation between the rise in the use of medical marijuana and the rise of autism over the same period of time?
