    thats whats wrong with people these days, everyone wants to blame everything on one thing instead of looking at the big picture instead of fighting the actual problem its just ban everything! and by the way if marijuana was legal recreationally it wouldn’t be in those hands. a plant has never made anyone kill someone thats just ridiculous but stupidity has. we are set up for idiocracy, except i don’t give it that long.
