LETTER: Cannabis prohibition has social consequences

Re: "Youth psychiatrist disappointed in Nova Scotia’s marijuana age decision," Dec. 9.

Do "health officials" and "provincial and national health organizations" ever think about the social consequences and harms of cannabis prohibition?

They are so narrow-minded and seem to only think about the safety of a product. If it isn't 100 per cent safe in their minds, they think it should be illegal. If they had a chance, they would probably make everything illegal that humans do, except for using pharmaceutical drugs, of course.

Do they not understand that criminal records and jail sentences for young-adult cannabis users and growers are unhealthy?
