Argument: Users simply smoke less of potent pot to achieve the same high
- "Legalizing Marijuana Would Allow Regulation of Its Potency". New York Times, Letter to the Editor. February 13, 1994 - "Nor is there anything particularly sinister about [more potent pot]. The active ingredient in all marijuana is tetrahydrocannabinol. The only difference between more potent and less potent varieties is that the more potent have more THC than the weaker. The psychoactive effects are identical. People who use the more potent varieties of marijuana simply smoke less of it than people who use the weaker ones to achieve the same high, just as people who drink distilled spirits consume less than people who drink beer."
