On Marijuana

The headline (on the article I’m not even going to bother linking to, because it’s so bloody obvious) said “New Study Finds Marijuana May Be Effective Against Depression”  and I thought “Well, duh.”

You know what else is effective against depression?  Music.  Dancing.  Handicrafts.  Italian food.  Chinese food.  Chocolate.  Wine.  Pets.  Sports.  Long walks along a tropical beach at sunset. Sex.  Movies with the 3 Stooges.  Basically, anything you like to do is going to be effective  against depression, at least temporarily.

Of course, I’m sure the article was talking about clinical depression and not what I think of when I think of depression, which is basically having a bad day and not being in a very good mood.

Even so, I think it was stating the obvious.  Marijuana is a mood altering drug.  It makes you feel light headed, euphoric.  I’m pretty sure it won’t make many people feel more depressed.

Another very positive development for the pro-marijuana crowd is that legal pot has been so successful in Colorado, it may lead to tax rebates for all of its citizens.

Of course, there is also the massive amount of evidence that it  cures various forms of  cancer. Mostly anecdotal evidence, so far, but I haven’t seen much evidence to refute it.

So, lots and lots of good reasons to legalize it everywhere, across the board,   but it  doesn’t look like it will happen any time soon.

Why is that?  It must be because some people are making big money  keeping it illegal.
