Re: Marijuana related ER visits among kids quadruple at Colorado hospital.

With pot legalization to take place on July 1, 2018, this is a scary
report for parents. There really is no surprise to anyone following
reports from the U.K., U.S. Surgeon General and the Canadian Medical
Association all stating unequivocally that the youngest smoking pot
run a greatly enhanced risk of suffering psychosis and other mental
issues. Yet Trudeau is ignoring these studies, setting 18 as the age
to purchase pot. Legalization is all about his pleasing a certain
voting block and of course raking in billions in sales. This is the
most dangerous move by any Canadian government. Early on Colorado had
warned Trudeau that legalization is the easy part, everything
thereafter, including the entrance of organized crime, much more difficult.
