Marijuana, is a very dangerous drug, for one thing it has 20 times the amount of carcinogens than tobacco, Lung Cancer anyone? Colorado is learning about this drug and auto accidents (DUI). There have been a few studies that show just what kind of problems arise from the use of this drug. Here are just 2:

“Cannabis–‐Related ED Visits Rise in States With Legalized Use,” Academy of Addiction Psychiatry (AAAP), 25th Annual Meeting, (www.ibhinc.org) December 2014

“Cannabis Use Is Quantitatively Associated with Nucleus Accumbens and Amygdala Abnormalities in Young Adult Recreational Users,” Journal of Neuroscience, 16 April 2014, 34(16): 5529-5538

The problems are escalating greatly in states that have legalized use of this drug. In young people there are definite changes in the brain. Please also note that with prolonged use, you will probably develop the old “Cigarette Cough”, this leads to lung problems later in life such as Emphysema and cancer. Today’s cannabis is much stronger that it was in the 60’s. In some strains up to 30% stronger THC. This is a drug that leads to all kinds of problems, not the least of which is psychosis. The Emergency Rooms in places where cannabis is legal, are experiencing a big uptick in overdose cases, where psychosis is one of the many problems seen.

Now I am not against people being able to do those things that seem right to them, but I am also not willing to see medical costs skyrocket as this stuff gets more and more use across our nation. There is a reason for the ban on these drugs, and it is because of what they do to people. Read the history of why drugs were banned in this country over a hundred years ago, it was not a pretty picture.

These politicians don’t care about the science, they only care about taxing the industry created by the legalization of this drug. They claim that they are doing away with crime, but the black market is thriving, because of the taxes on the product. Criminals don’t pay sales tax. The politicians (criminals) that want to legalize this stuff are only interested in their own ability to control the population, they don’t care that it will cause people to die horrible deaths just as they yell and scream about tobacco. Check out what the true science tells us, then, if you want to kill your children, destroy more lives including your own, continue down this path. The libertarians are wrong on this one, I like Stossel but he is dead wrong on legalization of drugs.
