Reader: I'm still waiting on the first OD from smoking pot

A recent Comment of the Day about NORML executive director Allen St. Pierre's advocacy of pot clubs spurred plenty of additional conversation. Here's a post from a reader who thinks concerns about such venues ignore others that he considers to be more dangerous.

Rob Gray writes:

Anyone who argues against this has nothing to stand on when you point out that all night clubs serve people a legal toxin on a nightly basis, causing hundreds of drunk driving deaths per year. Can anyone say the same about weed? I'm still waiting on the first OD from smoking it... still waiting........
