Marijuana - Soma for the Poor

  For those of you who haven't read 'A Brave New World', by Aldous Huxley, Soma was a drug that was dispensed to the masses. It kept them passive, unquestioning and in a content state. Marijuana is quickly on its way to become just such a drug for the poor. THC is the component of Marijuana that gives euphoria to its users. That level, in the genetically modified Marijuana of today, is incredibly high (no pun intended). Different strains can give you different effects, but all guarantee bliss. There's an article in today's NY Post  that chronicles the effect this drug is having on the poor. It also notes that those who are pushing for legalization aren't really the ones using it. I don't believe people should be locked up for it, but I certainly do believe it shouldn't be legalized or its use tolerated with teenagers.
