I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

The World's Favorite Drug Is More Dangerous Than You Think, UN Says

 

As the world is watching the impact of marijuana legalization measures in Uruguay and several American states, the United Nations warns that the widespread public perception that pot is a low-risk drug is dangerously mistaken.

 

"Medical research tell us clearly that the use of cannabis, particularly at early ages, can be very harmful for the health," UN Office on Drugs and Crime chief researcher Angela Me told a news conference on Thursday, Reuters reported.

 

UNODC warns, however, that while cannabis may be perceived as the least harmful illicit drug there has been a noticeable increase in the number of people seeking treatment for cannabis use disorders over the past decade.
