  1. There are no pharmacological effects to worry about unless they worry about bacon and BBQ…this stuff is mostly cultural and isn’t much up to “scientific inquiry” unless we are talking mass sociological studies, not clinical pharmacological studies…you know, like people choosing to be less productive because getting high all day is rewarding enough- this doesn’t just happen as a result of “pharmacology” in its self. You can’t sit down with most of these individuals down and pin the cause on getting high in its self.

    Why don’t they study the effects of poverty with this money? We already know that poverty is more damaging than smoking pot all day.
