America “needs to get to its children, before its children get to the drugs.” I’ve always believed in those words and went so far as coining it as a spokesperson for the DARE program in South Florida some years ago. Do I still believe it? Absolutely. But when it comes to marijuana, I now believe the way to achieve that vaulted goal is not through criminalization, but rather education.
That’s right, it’s time to do as the Uruguayans and legalize marijuana.
