Obviously adults devise their own faulty judgments and decisions, but youth is naive in not possessing the important knowledge or experience to generate correct decisions with easy availability of "pot" on the streets. One can predict in the states allowing recreational drug use that teenage accidents in cars, trucks, on bicycles or just walking will result in increasing serious injuries not only to themselves but to others. While commanding vehicles and using power tools and equipment, whether for hobbies, during school labs or for job duties, among students a rising need for medical care or surgery due to avoidable injuries, if not mortality, can be predicted. Parents, teachers, police and judges can anticipate lack of attention to studying, more classroom trouble-making, a rising school dropout rate and heightened gang and gangster activities. Furthermore, social workers and psychiatric services will incur striking upsurges in patient numbers and consequences with their mandatory mounting budgetary costs. Most critical, legal recreational marijuana represents an easy "next step" and provides additional "oil" onto the slippery slope to the use of hard narcotics among our youthful and naive teenagers. Let us not regress to such a monumental physical and mental mistake.
