1—I have never smoked.
2—I support medical marijuana use.
3---I support Kentucky’s plans to cultivate industrial hemp (NOT the same as marijuana) as we used to do.
I would seriously restrict tobacco smoking as much as possible, including the statewide ban that failed in the last legislature, mainly because it is the most preventable cause of serious sicknesses.
I believe, and wait for scientific proof, that smoking marijuana has some similar health problems as tobacco.
BUT, that proof is lacking today.
Three states that have legalized marijuana have had traffic accidents among marijuana smokers DOUBLE in recent months.
A AAA researcher says there is today no consensus of what might be the equivalent for smoking marijuana of the .08 blood alcohol level for drinkers.
I think it’s out there…and the research goes on.
I'm just sayin'...
