Study the dangers of pot use

As a former frequent recreational pot consumer, I know of the negative effect cannabis smoking can leave behind in a consumer’s body – in my case, a few months after I quit cold-turkey.

Nonetheless, if/when pot consumption does become legalized and regulated, hopefully it will be as progressive of a social move as its proponents adamantly insist it would.

But as with research into the health hazards involved with all legal/regulated mind-altering substances, the same zeal for knowledge must be just as prolifically applied to pot consumption.
