Legalized Pot, Part 2

6 Comments

Tuesday’s show on legalized marijuana was so popular and impactful, we decided to do a part two on that topic this week. That will air on Friday. Here is what we posted for Tuesday’s show. If you didn’t get a chance to get on the air on Tuesday, be sure to call early on Friday.

It’s inevitable. Young people for decades have had easy access to marijuana. As if that wasn’t bad enough, now, as pot becomes “legal” in states across the country, has that made it even more readily accessible to those you know and love? So many advocates for legalized marijuana are rejoicing and proclaiming the “good news” that what was for so long illegal, is now legal for both medicinal and recreational use. Pot-growing facilities are popping up everywhere, with billboards, sign spinners and advertisements telling would-be customers where to find their products, which range from what you smoke, to what you eat, to what you rub into your body. Are you alarmed about this? Do you have children you’re concerned are going to find it all-too-easy to access marijuana, even though they are not yet old enough to legally obtain it? This seems like a foregone conclusion. But what do you have to say about it? Share your take on Tuesday’s show.

  1. Hi Jerry and Debbie!
    I agree with caller Scott. I believe that the recreational marijuana is going to cause more problems! I am a nurse that works with newborns. If a mom wants to breastfeed and tests positive we are to discourage moms per hospital policy because it can be transferred to the breastmilk!! I have other thoughts as well because of our country’s opioid crises and what I’ve seen in my 36 year nursing career! However it’s too long to put in an email.

  2. I think it should be legalized. I live in Georgia now where it is not legal, but I can get CBD oil without the THC in it. But where I used to live in Maryland its now legalized. But a little to late for my nephew. He got out of rehab wanted to get high and did the first thing he could and it was laced with something. He died. Had it been legalized he would have had access to clean pot. The town I used to live in now has a pot farm. Employing many people, also many who we’re not working are now working jobs they never would before because they we’re afraid of popping positive for pot. Harsher drug use is down. And anyone who uses has to have a medical card from their doctor for it. Easy to get though. I have fibromyalgia, and apparently it runs in my family because since my diagnosis years ago 2 of my sisters have been diagnosed as well. One of my sisters uses pot for her pain and depression. I can not because of where I live, and I can not use the medications for it either because I also have bipolar disorder 1 (diagnosed in 1987) and ptsd, and the medications for fibromyalgia give me suicidal thoughts and tendencies. I was hospitalized 3 times for suicide attempts while on them.
    So now since I have nothing to help me at all I find it hard to get out of my bed. I keep praying to God that this country will realize that He gave us Marijuana …. As a natural remedy for mood disorders and pain reliever

    But man keeps thinking they know better than God

    • Brenda,

      Thanks for your thoughtful comments. We will pray for your health, and, of course, will keep the soul of your nephew in our prayers. May the Lord grant you peace and resolutions to what must be very difficult conditions.
