BY THIS TIME NEXT WEEK, we’ll all be smoking pot.
Or at least, we’ll be able to smoke pot legally, trusting of course that there are no underagers in the audience.
There is reason for concern about what happens on October 17, but it’s not the kind of concern that stems from reefer madness-type hysteria.
The evidence that many more people will be using cannabis once it is legal is still unconvincing.
We all know that those who had a taste for contraband up until now could and would use it, with the legal recourse being rare and minimal for casual users.
