    As was this:

    Anne Blood, assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, said that the areas affected were "core, fundamental structures of the brain".

    "They form the basis for how you assess positive and negative features about things in the environment and make decisions," she said.

    At what age do you recognize this right? If an infant begins crawling towards the edge of a balcony, do you just allow him/her to proceed?

    I would pay top dollar to see the reaction of the pot heads if the legalization were to be revoked.

    I'd pay top dollar to see the reaction of binge-drinking/alcoholic So-Cons if prohibition were somehow brought back.

    Because you have a prescription means it's better for you?

    Prescription drug abuse now more deadly than heroin, cocaine combined - CSMonitor.com

    There is a reason we have age limits on cigarettes and alcohol and I haven't heard anybody suggest that there shouldn't be one for legalized marijuana.

    Of course there are violations on scripts but for the most parts they are drugs prescribed by a doctor for and ailment.

    Okay, pot can hurt you. So does cholesterol. So does red meat. So does a chocolate chip cookie. Take some risks in your life. Not everything is always safe for you. Ever drive above the speed limit? That's dangerous, too.

    Nobody seriously thinks pot is harmless, just not very harmful and worth the risk.
