Meghan McCain and the Weed Generation Gap
This video comes from The Young Turks and contains a couple interesting things. First, of course, is Meghan McCain and her views on marijuana, so divergent from many in her Party.
But the discussion that ensues about just how “open” is marijuana use in California is great as well. While the younger people tend to see it a lot, the older host says he sees very little “open” use. Every younger generation has a certain distrust of the one that came before it, which might account for more “hidden” use around older people.
And since use tends to be more prevalent among younger people, every poll reflects that legalization support is highest among younger age demographics. Regular users and those who don’t use but have internet access both know how safe marijuana is, especially compared to other recreational and medical substances.
Those under 30 were raised with much less propaganda about cannabis than their parents. This coincides with the incredible power of the internet, where everyone has information at their fingertips.
Older generations like to pretend they haven’t been lied to, but their children know differently. Lies never last long, and the light of truth always burns through.
