Its all relative, though. The alcohol trope is a good comparison. Do we NEED to allow people to buy grain alcohol? No, but restriction by potency is a slippery slope...hello Utah, lol.As somebody who used to get what was considered the best pot ever n the 90s I must say the potency of today’s weed is out of control. I buy the weak shit. Nobody needs 30% THC.
Im guessing what Billy is seeing is the equivalent of a kid trying drinking by having a pint of rum their first time.
The whole thing comes down to personal responsibility. If you abuse a substance and commit a crime, become a degen slob, or other nonsense, then you deserve to suffer the consequence. If you hurt another while consuming anything, you deserve to pay a consequence equivalent (as can be) to the life whom you took.
This debate is really an illustration of our societal lack of empathy and understanding. Most people have a preferred vice of some kind. If you’ve ever over consumed alcohol, then you have no ground to stand on defaming someone who smokes pot. If you are a fat ass and over consume food habitually (stoned or not), then you cant crap on an alcoholic, because you have an addiction, too.
