Letter to the Editor: Double standard on marijuana legalization

I find it interesting that the Medical Society of Delaware opposes marijuana due to lack of research. Cannabis has been around for centuries. How much time do they need to study the plant? It sure didn’t take them long to research and approve opioid pharmaceuticals that have destroyed our country.

I have yet to find a person who overdosed on pot. I believe profit over common sense is the issue here. How does government, big pharma, tobacco and all the rest get their pieces of silver before the people can do what they want? Not enough research, yeah right!
