Marijuana should not be legalized because it causes flashbacks and other impairments, according to retired neurosurgeon and Fox News contributor Ben Carson.
“We have known for a long time that people who engage in such activities can have flashbacks months and years after usage,” he told Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg during an interview on Tuesday.
Carson said marijuana also impaired cognitive function at the time of use.
“So why would we throw into the mix something else that can impair people? We have enough impaired people already.”
On January 1, Colorado became the first state to legalize the recreational use of marijuana Washington state also has legalized marijuana, but the law will not be implemented until several months from now.

Stylist fired for refusing to cut Black girl’s hair: ‘She made fun of the color of my skin’
A Massachusetts stylist was fired after insulting a Black family who had scheduled haircuts.
Damalyn Ellslager-Matthews brought her three children -- ages 7, 5 and 2 -- into Supercuts in Westboro last week, along with her 21-year-old niece, but a stylist balked at cutting their hair, reported WBZ-TV.
“Now this lady told [the niece, who is white], ‘You should have told us you were Black when you made the appointment,’” Damalyn said. “[My daughter] is so naive she says, ‘Well, I’m not Black, my skin’s brown -- can you trim my hair anyways?’”
‘If I’m Trump — I’m scared right now’: MSNBC’s Neal Katyal says Trump’s taxes will likely come out before election
MSNBC legal analyst Neal Katyal on Thursday argued that President Donald Trump has reason to worry about the Supreme Court's ruling that he could not simply ignore subpoenas for information about his personal finances.
During an appearance on the network, Katyal said he disagreed with analysis saying that Trump should view the 7-2 SCOTUS ruling as a mixed bag, since it gave him the opportunity to continue fighting subpoenas even as it denied his ability to dismiss them outright.
Fox News pundit: Tax returns ruling against Trump is ‘a win for him’ and ‘will help the president’
Fox News pundit Katie Pavlich argued on Thursday that a Supreme Court ruling which opened the door for prosecutors to obtain Donald Trump's tax returns is actually "a win" for the president.
Pavlich made the remarks after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance can request the president's tax records in a public corruption case.
"I think it's a win and a little bit of a loss for President Trump," Pavlich explained. "In the sense that he will now have to deal with a number of these issues and other presidents in the future will as well, whether they are valid requests for information or not and whether they are being made for political for reasons or for valid criminal investigations."
