I don't know what Glenn Driedger has been smoking, but he should change to cannabis and come to grips with reality (Faith Today, Nov. 22 Times).
The Dutch consume cannabis in levels much lower than Canadians or US citizens. Any increase he notes when it semi-legalized was a short-term phenomenon, just as it will be in our countries when it is re-legalized.
Dutch teenagers are much less likely to use it because the forbidden fruit syndrome has been removed and they think cannabis is something boring that old hippies do.
People like Glenn are afraid of reality and the earth we live on.
The rest of us don't need to be saddled with their fears and phobias.
