I am the eternal optimist and still I am not convince that marijuana is the way forward. I discourage people I know from using it because I know the risk associated with it's use. Where I live it's still illegal but it seems like so many just don't care and don't ever intend to quit. Far from quitting, I'm sure many are eager to welcome me into the world of weed. Are those of us who discourage it's use, fighting a losing battle when we try to discourage people from using marijuana?
