The Latest War-on-Drugs Propaganda

I just watched a Faux News TV report on a new government-funded “study” that claims that smoking pot may turn your children, grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren into heroin addicts, even if THEY never smoked pot.  The “study” was a study of rats, not humans, and it concluded that the rats’ offspring exhibited addicted behavior after their parents were given the ingredients of pot.  From that it was concluded that if YOU smoke as few as eight joints, all of your descendants may well become heroin addicts — or worse.

There is of course no reason to believe that humans will behave exactly like rats (politicians excepted).  Real scientists know this, and the reporterettes at Faux News probably do, too, but they seem hell bent on stirring up hysteria over ending any part of the disastrous and immoral “war on drugs.”
