Every Seventh Person is a Druggie

   A new survey widely reported today shows 13% of adults smoke marijuana. That's twice the number from a poll three years earlier.
  I would suspect in the younger adult demos the percentage is well north of 20.
  As we continue to read about those seventh degree possession arrests or the plant spotted through a neighbors window, or the ones spotted in a field in the Town of Watson, it's apparent there is room for growth in arrests.
    That is how we measure success isn't it ?
     The dichotomy on pot has always been there. I remember in my news days, reporters would cover the cop presser on pot plants seized and carry on about the War on Drugs and gateway drugs. Then that night the same reporters would gather at a house party and light up a doobie. And that was 30 years ago..
     Goodness knows what happens these days.

Peer pressures. If enough young people believed shoving cat crap into their ears would make their phone battery last longer, there would be a mass movement to do so. What else is there to do when you are staring at your phone? There is so much out there to enjoy in life. Yet this is their answer. Maybe we should declare them all victims, then send them checks. They must appreciate the value of freestuff.

It says the margin of error is 5%. Does that mean that possibly only 8% use it?

They don't establish how often or how much is smoked. this is important information as the libtards k3eep trying to pretend that minorities are treated more harshly by our justice system. When they make the argument, the throw all users into the same argument, no matter if it was a one time user or a daily user. they also throw all "drug offenders" into the same category, regardless of the quantity that the criminal possesed.

Well, Do we have to include the 18-21 year old that are allowed to vote ie the local hometown boy song writer of 'Watertown Whore'. I can understand that 13% of the bracket would most likely admit to smoking weed but would never acknowledge the usage of stronger drugs.

Jeff, why did the survey include this age bracket concerning the crisis
of heroin usage,hmmmmmmmm

In Amherst, N.Y. today, a supposed Meth lab was discovered down a sewer in a Wal-Mart parking lot. That's taking one stop shopping a little too far.

Dan, we all have more suspicions about you than you might realize. What is it that makes a man love his party more than his country. Does the party send you more freestuff than the taxpayer? Doubtful.
