David Brooks Explains Why He Stopped Smoking Weed And Why It Should Not Be Legalized
Washington and Colorado have legalized the recreational use of marijuana. David Brooks does not think that this is good idea. Its not a good idea because he and some of his friends tried it out when they were kids and they gave it up for better things (perhaps they did not inhale). However, one of his friends got hooked on weed, and government should not make it easier for kids to get addicted to weed. Government should encourage its citizens to pursue the higher forms of pleasure that he and his friends engaged in after giving up on weed. Smoking weed is such a 1960's thing. Everyone should be cool like David Brooks and his friends who tried it out and went on to better things.
