For years, an argument against marijuana use was the idea that it may dull your ambitions. Many have said that the effect of THC on dopamine production promotes laziness and saps work ethic. However, there are a number of people considered captains of industry who would certainly argue otherwise. Indeed, there are a number of successful people who point to marijuana as their (as Microsoft founder Bill Gates is quoted as saying) “pharmaceutical of choice.”
The movement toward legalizing pot in the U.S. has had a long road, and there is still far to go. But, how will it be possible to convince those states that haven’t yet gotten on board?
Recent gains demonstrate a population that is ready to get over any stigma attached to smoking pot. It’s long been proved that cannabis use is less addictive and better for general health than tobacco or alcohol. Not to mention the revenue from taxing legalized pot has been very lucrative for states like Colorado and Washington (and excellent for job creation too).
