Can Not Harm

From “Stark gap in how doctors and the gov’t view marijuana” (the Cannabist):

None of this is to say, of course, that marijuana is completely “safe” or “harm-free.” As with any drug, using too much weed can lead to dependency on it. And as with any other drug, marijuana can have particularly harmful effects on young, developing minds.

Too much cannabis can lead to dependency and can have harmful effects on young developing minds somehow constitutes definitive harm?

The fact is there is no experimental science concluding any harm from moderate cannabis use (moderate simply meaning any use without objectively proven harm).

Moreover, cannabis dependency was concluded as “generally mild” (with a 9% dependency rate) in a report by the Institute of Medicine that was commissioned by the prohibitionist White House Office of National Drug Control Policy — so even cannabis dependency is not generally a serious issue.

Memory serving, there is even fairly recent research debunking (if not at least raising to question) the supposed harmful effects that cannabis has on young developing minds.

Stop “reporting” that cannabis is automatically harmful. That is fallacious.

Cannabis (like anything good in life) can be abused, and abuse by its very nature is harmful, but use is clearly distinct from abuse — even though flagrantly unethical people continue to interchange use and abuse merely to their demonizing convenience, so thugs with badges and guns continue to definitively (not possibly) harm people via the mass rights infringement known as prohibition.

I am an honest freak (or reasonably responsibly balanced "misfit", if you prefer) of an artist working and resting to best carefully contribute towards helping society. Too many people abuse reasoning (e.g. 'partial truth = whole truth' scam), while I exercise reason to explore and express whole truth without any conflict-of-interest -- all within a sometimes offbeat style of psychedelic artistry.
