Hey, Jefferson Said It's Alright...


... I closed out my shift yesterday tending to another overdose- this doper was far from unresponsive though- she downed some pills, some booze, snorted some crank and beat the hell out of her roommate.
I got to thinking- I've never been on a marijuana overdose, or seen an assault, brawl or domestic violence call related to pot use. The stuff seems pretty benign- and before some one starts yelling gateway drug- well, let's put pot in line way behind cigarettes and alcohol.

“The greatest service which can be rendered any
country is to add a useful plant to its culture.”
- Thomas Jefferson, 1813
