How interesting so many are concerned about the kids and cannabis, but they don't seem to be as worried about the effects of alcohol and tobacco.

Let's look at our level of concern for the kids.
The Eagles, where people drink on-site, is located right across the street from the Little League baseball fields.
The Sugar Bowl, another on-site alcohol consumption place, is right next to a residential area. The local Liquor Store is located between a Sporting Goods Store and a Pet Store. And where do we allow the sales of tobacco, quickly addicting and deadly? Oh, everywhere.

Give me a break. This is about the decades of government fueled and financed Cannabis Bigotry. Cannabis doesn't kill. As far as what drug addicts started with, I would guess that alcohol and tobacco were actually the first drugs used, unless you want to count mother's milk. Disgusted with the usual rap.
