The propaganda machine against marijuana is ramping up after Colorado legalizes it. So predictable.
More drivel (aside from this bullshit study Maggie mentioned):
Murder, Illnesses Prompt Second Look at Recreational Marijuana Law in Colorado:
So when people take aspirin and coincidentally have psychotic breaks, are the cops going to focus on the hazards of aspirin and get that parroted by the idiots on news outlets as well?
Aspirin, by the way, causes hundreds of deaths each year.
Marijuana is supposed to be a distraction from the slow police response time.
I should mention I don't necessarily blame the police for it. They are underfunded and understaffed. If marijuana had been legalized and taxed a long time ago, we'd have much more money available for the police by now for a host of reasons.
So, if we really want someone to blame for the slow police response we can look dead in the eyes of those who've been in our way for marijuana legalization all these years.
But, yeah... marijuana... evil... bad.. scary... while alcohol... fun... macho... mainstream...
