I'm sure you're familiar with the phrase "There are lies, damn lies, and statistics." Well...
Look, I don't know where the NIDA or NSC is getting their info. But in a country where we can't get seem to get anything resembling accurate information on gun deaths, police shootings, opoiod use, etc. I find it fascinating that they have such a clear picture of marijuana use, employer costs, etc. If the absurdity of that alone doesn't leave you suspicious, perhaps--and I'm sorry if this sounds harsh--education shouldn't be you profession.
the truth is seldom pleasant,we live in a world of denial about many things
