Pot Proposal Panned

A coalition of medical professionals has penned a letter to state officials, including Governor Youngkin, urging them to reject the marijuana industry’s push for a new retail market for high-potency THC drugs. They warn of the risks associated with these products, including depression, suicide, and even psychosis, particularly in young people. The group, backed by major medical societies, says they are standing up against the industry’s lobbying efforts.
