- In January, CBS news reported that 72% of liberals support legalizing marijuana.
- In February the National Institutes of Health reported that regular marijuana use among adolescents lowers IQ by about 10 points.
- This month researchers from Harvard and Northwestern Universities, reported that marijuana use by those age 18-25 creates abnormalities in the nucleus accumbens and the amygdala, parts of the brain that help people judge what is rewarding or aversive.
I don't anticipate this knowledge will change the liberal support for the expansion of legal marijuana use. After all, just like granting citizenship to illegal aliens would result in more Democrat voters, making people dumber and unable to think will also result in more Democrat voters.
Does this remind you of soma? Every conservative should read Aldous Huxley's Brave New World to see the future of what happens when liberalism is given free reign. Soma was a drug given to everyone to make them feel better so they were easier for the government to control.
It is one thing for a political philosophy to take a stand because it wants something better for its supporters, but it is nothing less than cynical unconscionable evil to support an activity that will damage the brains of young people and lower their intelligence, all for the purpose of controlling political power.
