Ah, finally, you’re starting to get to a point. “Sometimes we have to escape ourselves”. While this is true, I also don’t think that this is why people are legalizing cannabis all over the world. The fact of the matter is that cannabis prohibition has a lot of overlap with alcohol prohibition, except its amplified. The Mafias during alcohol prohibition is nothing compared to the Cartels of drug prohibition. The problem isn’t about pacification, the problem is with government over reach. Furthermore, when you have some understanding of the mechanics of cannabis, you’d understand that endocannabinoid deficiencies do play a role in happiness.
