Legalizing pot is so unpopular with the tobacco and alcohol industries because fine quality products can be more easily and discretely made at home with far less overhead. Plus sold/traded in small markets (e.g. neighbors, friends), hence much more difficult to enforce any regulation restrictions. Conversely, most wines, liquors and tobacco take more effort, equipment and land/space to produce. It’s easier for the average American, even alcoholics and cigarette smokers, to purchase vs. produce their own but large conglomerates to do so while making a huge profit.
When you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins. These endorphins interact with the receptors in your brain that reduce your perception of pain. Endorphins also trigger a positive feeling in the body, similar to that of morphine (or codeine) – webmd.com. Smoking, whatever the substance, shares many techniques found in yoga, often considered a form of exercise – deep breathing, thinking calming thoughts, minimizing movement, etc. Hence the reason cigarette smokers find nicotine patches/pills less effective of “kicking the habit”. Likewise, simple intake of THC and/or other ‘active’ ingredients isn’t viewed as attractive to pot users compared to smoking/eating cannibus. To dismiss or belittle the truly psychological, even psychiatric component is naive at best.
Yes, I hate auto correct !
Personally, I can’t even be around ‘second hand’ pot smoke. The first and only time I was, I had a panic attack and seizure (I have epilepsy) and was taken to a local hospital via EMS. My peers know not to smoke anything around me, doesn’t put a damper of festivities, we just separate the smokers from the non-smoker; most people don’t smoke anyway.
Because pot isn’t regulated in most US states, it is still a gateway drug among pushers. I know crack and other nefarious chemicals were mixed into pot starting in the ’80’s onward, especially in inner-cities, hence the crack epidemic (which was conveniently ignored to productively eradicate compared to the current opioid crisis , but I digress).

Hmm…something speculated about since his early 2016 entrance – ‘I don’t know. You don’t know. But a handful of armchair psychoanalysts — reporters for major news organizations, no less — have decided that it all began at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, where Trump was the butt of jokes by President Obama and “Saturday Night Live” comedian Seth Meyers. Trump was so humiliated by the experience, they say, that it triggered some deep, previously hidden yearning for revenge. “That evening of public abasement, rather than sending Mr. Trump away, accelerated his ferocious efforts to gain stature in the political world,” wrote the New York Times last month.’ WaPo April 26, 2016
