Laura Ingraham hosted Patrick J. Kennedy of Project SAM.
Kennedy said today's marijuana is edible THC whichi s found in all sorts of food products and this is very different marjjuana than that marketed several decades ago. He cautioned about the effects this drug will have on people. He's concerned particularly about those who are inclined toward addiction and mental illness will be targeted as they will be the biggest users.
Kennedy feels that alcohol is equally dangerous but that this genie is out of the bottle and that we don't need more mind altering substances flooding the market. He agreed that pot is a gateway drug to harder substances and that we should try to protect people. He said personally he's doing better from addiction. He treats his addiction as a chronic illness.
