This is our fourth post in our ongoing series of Saturday posts featuring great quotes regarding cannabis, mostly from public figures.
This one is from astronomer Carl Sagan, the author of more than 600 scientific papers. Apparently, Sagan was very frustrated (as our we) with how science was playing no part in the marijuana prohibitions of his day:
The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.
Sagan got it right.
