What to expect in this episode:
- Exploring how marijuana fits in society
- Being Pro-decriminalization doesn’t mean there is no harm or side effects
- We’re in an interesting experiment to see what happens when we decriminalize a substance, the stigma goes away, & how that affects our society in general over time.
Marijuana Decriminalization | The Future of Addiction
I don’t think we really know over the long-term what it’s like to regulate self-medicating marijuana over 5 years 10 years 15 years 20 years and the impact that has on individuals and the impact that has on groups or productivity or our society as a whole.
So we’re in the midst of an interesting experiment to see what happens when we decriminalize a substance and the stigma goes away, which I think is a good thing, how does that affect our society in general over time.
So part of what will be understanding is what does society look like in relationship to mass consumption of marijuana over a long period of time.
