    • Really?

      I’m not against legalizing it but to say that it has zero health implications is false. Like alcohol it slows your reaction time. It also can have negative reactions with some people. Long term studies do show that like other substances (nicotine, caffeine, fatty diets, etc) it does have implications later in life.
