Ugh...the weed article.

I smoke. I've smoked on and off for most of my adult life. I'm a light user (I haven't always been), and I support legalization for many reasons, not the least of which is the medical benefits of cannabis. But I also think it should be regulated and people should be educated about the risks, because while the risks are low, it isn't 100% risk free. It can negatively affect developing brains, it can exacerbate mental illness (like any mind altering substance), and people who operate heavy machinery, or do things like...oh...I don't know...operate on people shouldn't be high while doing it.

So of course one commenter comes along yelling I bet you never used and you've never had mental illness blah blah blah blah blah. I looked at the commenting history, and anyone who suggested that cannabis has ANY potentially negative side effects got the same treatment.

Dude. I'm on your side. Maybe you should put down the bong long enough to work on that reading comprehension.
