230 Colorado Kids expelled from Public Schools this last year because of Marijuana use while in school

CNN was reporting this morning that 230 kids were expelled from Colorado schools because of either coming to school high every day or for smoking it at school according to CNN news today, December 31st 2013.

Though making one ounce of Marijuana legal for a resident of Colorado for use at home might save many lives in Mexico and near the U.S. Mexico border on both sides in Gang wars and wars between Mexico and gangs,  and the U.S. government and gangs it also could put in jeapordy more children in Colorado and surrounding states because children below 18 can be harmed by the more potent marijuana grown now that is about 30 to 300 times more powerful in various ways than what college students used in the 1960s and 1970s here in the U.S. and around the world.

So, though there might be many less horrific deaths around the border areas there will be many more problems when this stuff gets into the hands of children who will not properly physiologically or psychologically develop and society at large will therefore be harmed by the creation of this underclass of dysfunctional children who never fully become adults possibly ever or just very late in life.

Also, if you look closely at the location of Colorado it is in the very center of the lower 48 states which would be strategic to Cigarette companies and other companies for dispensing more and more marijuana based smoke, food and drink products over time. If you see how strategic this is for businesses legalizing pot in Colorado one worries about it's effect on children under 18 throughout our nation.

So, even though it is illegal at Denver Airport you can be sure it will be purchased legally and then driven to any other state in the nation by people who decide to do that. So, the Colorado Marijuana law affects every one of the lower 48 states directly and every resident of every one of the lower 48 states should be aware of this fact that it likely will affect their children too directly or indirectly in the future.

Another fact I heard today on CNN is that often children who smoke Marijuana regularly before age 18 often have a 6 to 8 point IQ drop that is permanent. So, here is another reason to try to prevent children smoking marijuana so they actually can still tie their own shoes, start businesses and be successful in college and in their careers in their 20s and 30s and beyond.
