When drugs become legalised the means of getting them do too and crime rates go down. Legal drugs are cleaner and safer. Though to me weed is not a “drug” like the others, it has no overdose potential and a long list of benefits.
I am an ex meth addict, I had to do terrible things to get it and then when I did it was cut with nasty additives. When drugs are legalised they become regulated and use is more controlled. There is no reason to go rob or steal for drugs if there are regulated cheaper legalised safe drugs on offer.
I have glaucoma and weed helps slow down the degeneration. My mother works as a care worker and struggles to fathom why her clients with motor neurone disease, Huntington's, Multiple Sclerosis, epilepsy, Parkinson's, sensory processing disorder… the list goes on, cannot have CBD oil which helps so many people in places that have legalised it.
