Canada tokes at 4 times world average: UN

My wife is very anti-drugs and will definitely have a lot to say about this. Me, I don't use but I don't care much about drugs.
I do care about rational public policy and as such I think we should tear down the existing policies and redraw them around a minimal harm and medical rehabilitation framework.
That's why my wife and I don't talk about these things much.

He added: 'The real effect is on young kids who take it. We regularly have kids who take it at the age of 11 or 12. If your brain is growing, you can kiss goodbye to that - by the time you are 16 or 17 you will be in a psychotic state. It is an enormously dangerous drug, but a lot of middle-class families don't see that.'

Just go read this, okay?
