POT: Greed knows no boundaries

Disappointment and disgust greeted me as I read the business article, “Wall Street sniffs out opportunity in marijuana” (TNT, 4-21). I’m still waiting for The News Tribune to feature an in-depth article on the extreme (negative) physical and mental consequences marijuana has on the user.

Legitimizing and legalizing pot only condemns our youth to well-documented physical and mental health problems, including chronic apathy, a variety of cancers and pallid psychosis (to name a few).

If only our glorious federal government and the medical and health care industries would do their jobs.
