Today is 4/20, a marijuana-celebrating holiday that has its roots at my alma mater, San Rafael High School. In the ensuing decades, 4/20 was referred to as Burnout Day. But since then, as pot use has become less demonized, more common, and increasingly legal, 4/20 has evolved from Glaucoma Treatment Day, to Medical Marijuana Day, to, let’s be honest, just “Day.” The mainstreaming of marijuana makes a recent decision by a French court all the more perplexing. Roger Cohen in the NYT: “The highest court in France has ruled that the man who killed a Jewish woman in 2017 in an anti-Semitic frenzy cannot stand trial because he was in a state of acute mental delirium brought on by his consumption of cannabis. Kobili TraorĂ©, who has admitted to the killing and is in a psychiatric institution, beat Sarah Halimi, 65, before throwing her out the window of her Paris apartment to cries of ‘Allahu akbar,’ or God is great, and ‘I killed the devil.'” I’m living proof pot doesn’t cause antisemitism. And this case is further troubling evidence that antisemitism is on the rise in Europe, even as there’s a serious unwillingness to call it what it is.
