No benefits

Resident expresses concerns about decriminalizing marijuana

The adoption of liberal values has led to the breakup of many families. The latest liberal cause, the legalization of marijuana as proposed by the Sensible B.C. campaign will only exasperate this problem.

The only relevant question regarding legalization is, will increased marijuana use by teens and young adults help or harm them?

Specifically, will it lead to:

n Lowered academic achievement? Yes.

n Impaired brain function and increased schizophrenia in young males? – Yes.

n Decreased vocational and career success? Yes.

n Difficulties in maintaining family relationships? Yes.

n Increased traffic fatalities from drivers testing positive for tetrahydrocannabinol?

And finally, will they derive any benefits from increased marijuana use? No.

Society’s most important role is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children.

The liberal enticement of soft drugs and casual sex, coupled with alcohol abuse, has been a potent recipe for destroying families.

This, in turn, has led to increasing problems for children from these relationships including poverty, lowered academic achievement, increased crime and social and behavioral problems.

This relationship can be restated using the following formula: liberal permissiveness leads to family breakdown, which in turn leads to problems for children from these relationships.

However, liberal fundamentalists are deliberately blind to the chaos that their philosophy helped to create.

Societies most important role is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children.

The legalization of marijuana will have the opposite effect, but this fact is unlikely to deter  fundamentalists.
