Retro Baltimore: 50 things we miss

Marijuana isn't as harmless as people think [Letter]

The important news about marijuana isn't that it now can be bought in Washington state, it's in the research that's showing up in publications like the April 2014 Journal of the American Heart Association.

According to that report, "the general public thinks marijuana is harmless, but information revealing the potential health dangers of marijuana use needs to be disseminated to the public, policymakers and health care providers."
