Legalized marijuana will ‘enslave our youth” and turn the federal government into “the new pusher on the block,” a Chatham politician says – drawing a rebuke from the community’s top public-health official.
In AD 862 Ethelbert, the King of Kent, granted land to form the Manor of Bromley.
It was held by the Bishops of Rochester until 1845, when Coles Child, a wealthy local merchant and philanthropist, purchased Bromley Palace (now the hub of the Bromley Civic Centre) and became lord of the manor.
“Right now parents will have the ability and the options to stop kids from using marijuana if they don’t want them to,” he said.
“But if the government says it’s legal and if they can buy it at a dispensary, especially if that dispensary is operated by the government, what control will the parents have over any other decision-making? David Colby, Chatham-Kent’s medical officer of health, said marijuana can be more harmful for developing brains than mature brains, but he suspects the drug’s legalization will not make things worse for youth.
Van Kesteren, who joined the federal health committee at the “tail-end” of discussions on the bill, said he predicts the rate of usage to increase once the drug is legal because he thinks it will be more accessible.
“I’m not suggesting that everybody that’s going to smoke marijuana is going to fall into that temptation or fall into that pattern, but some will,” he said.
“If we had, just assume, if we had five per cent of the population, that’s a horrendous problem if you have addictions at five per cent.” Colby said he does not believe the “gateway” theory about cannabis.
Bromley was historically a market town chartered since 1158 and an ancient parish in the county of Kent.
Its location on a coaching route and the opening of a railway station in 1858 were key to its development, and the economic history of Bromley is underpinned by a shift from an agrarian village to commerce and retail.
