Asking the right questions

Can you imagine such a thing?
Via Tom Angell… The Rhode Island Senate unanimously passed a bill to create a nine-member study commission to ask these and other questions:

  • “Whether and to what extent Rhode Island youth have access to marijuana despite current laws prohibiting its use…
  • Whether adults’ use of marijuana has decreased since marijuana became illegal in Rhode Island in 1918…
  • Whether the current system of marijuana prohibition has created violence in the state of Rhode Island against users or among those who sell marijuana…
  • Whether the proceeds from the sales of marijuana are funding organized crime, including drug cartels…
  • Whether those who sell marijuana on the criminal market may also sell other drugs, thus increasing the chances that youth will use other illegal substances?”

Of course, we know the answers to those questions, but to see politicians asking them? That’s amazing!
