Cannabis Legalization?

By Leo Gura - June 22, 2018

Here’s a really intelligent discussion about the ramifications of cannabis legalization:

I don’t recommend pot use because it tends to become addictive. I never use it myself even though it is legal in my state. But I do support nationwide legalization because this war on drugs is absurd, counter-productive, and we need to pave the way for legalization of psychedelics, the prohibition of which is a clear violation of 1st Amendment rights to freedom of religion:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

— U.S. Constitution, 1st Amendment

Anyone who claims that psychedelics are not a religious/spiritual tool is inexperienced and ignorant of religious history and numerous scientific studies. If psychedelics are not an exercise of religion, nothing is. In the future, this will be recognized by the Supreme Court and the criminalization of these substances will go down in the history books as yet another example of 21st century barbarism. We ain’t out of the Dark Ages yet.

P.S. Congrats to Canada for finally legalizing cannabis this week!
