“Marijuana in its natural form is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man.” — Francis Young, Drug Enforcement Administration administrative law judge (1988). These words ring as true today as they did almost 35 years ago. The DEA at the time disregarded its own judges ruling on whether cannabis should be rescheduled to a less restrictive level. With the passage of Question 4 on the ballot, which passed with almost two-thirds approval, cannabis will be legal for recreational use on a limited basis. I see the disconnect between how we treat this compared to alcohol and tobacco. There is no law that I know of which limits how much alcohol or tobacco you can have if you are over the legal age limit.
