Excellent point, as those who have worked to restore cannabis legalization well know. Big Cannabis, though it lacks the old-money cachet of Big Pharma, includes some very seamy characters. I’m not referring to growers, of course, but the hot-money financiers who are eager to add dispensaries and recreational shops to their portfolios, with state assistance through outrageous licensing expenses. But that point is also quite irrelevant and is used irresponsibly in this debate; political economy is not pharmacology any more than individual cases dictate cannabis use across the spectrum of human experience. Under the guise of concern, MIA has made a habit of posting questionable efforts to breathe life into the corpse of the Drug War. It’s toxic irony that a web site dedicated to contesting unaccountable and scientifically-indefensible practices is itself engaging in them.
