start that serious national conversation about marijuana! Seventy-five
years late is better than never. Why now? Because marijuana legalization
support is growing and is more popular by several points then any
politician in the country!
This new marijuana
majority has the momentum, the votes and the moral high ground; if you
support prohibition you are showing your age and your lack of medical
science knowledge and you shouldn't be in office making decisions that
affect young people 18-34 who are the new face of America.
This new marijuana spring just gave birth to legalization.
ain't no stopping this good thing. Those running for any public office
in the future would be wise to join the winning side and come in for the
big win with us.
Cannabis will be
completely legal in the US by 2020, two presidential cycles from now.
The writing is on the wall, and the simple age demographics of the U.S.
Our first serious national topic of conversation: Stop this War on Marijuana
Marijuana prohibition has wounded our nation, and we need to stop this bleeding.
For no cost, our nation could be healed with the stroke of a pen overnight!
A compassionate example would be:
An executive order of nationwide amnesty for any nonviolent person in
prison or awaiting trail for marijuana possession and/or growing
• A retroactive, blanket pardon of any nonviolent person convicted of marijuana possession who is still alive;
• Lifting all restrictions on medical researchers' access to independently supplied cannabis for medical study purposes.
These brave men are
not criminals. Hey Mr. President, I have an idea: why not pardon these
men and invite them to an unplugged beer summit at the White House as
payback for all the votes we gave you in good faith? I still believe in
your good will.
country is ending our second overseas war--why not make it three? End
this war here at home. We are very good at protecting everybody else in
the world--when are we going to protect and care for our own? We are not
This serious conversation may lead
to some uncomfortable truths about our nation, but ultimately it needs
to end with a nationwide marijuana reconciliation which starts with amnesty for all, traditional when a war ends.
simple marijuana possession and growing is no worse than crashing the
nation's banking system for trillions of dollars with nobody going to
jail. See what we mean?
guess it makes a difference when marijuana legalization gets more votes
than your boss does in an important swing state, as happened in
Colorado this last election" ~ Tom Angell, Marijuana Majority
Our second serious national topic of conversation: Cannabis is the safest plant-based medicine on Earth!
Please explain why marijuana is considered dangerous when 1,993 legal deaths take place every day from four government regulated items vs. zero marijuana deaths ever.
Let me explain...
Today in the U.S., one can purchase all matter of items that can and do kill.
Need evidence? Let's see...
A semi automatic assault rifle -- Status: Legal
A bottle of alcohol -- Status: Legal
Number of alcoholic liver disease deaths: 15,183
Number of alcohol-induced deaths, excluding accidents and homicides: 24,518
place this in perspective, a 100-pound woman or man who consumed 9-10
standard drinks, respectively, in less than an hour, would be in the LD
50 range. A 200-pound man would have to consume about 5-6 drinks per
hour for 4 hours to reach the LD 50. Although such high rates of
consumption are atypical of most situations, participating in drinking
games or club initiations often involves highly unregulated alcohol
consumption. Impaired judgment from intoxication, coupled with large
amounts of alcohol, is a potentially fatal combination."
The LD 50 marijuana: What is the lethal dose?
THC is tested for its LD 50 in rats, researchers have a problem: They
can't seem to kill the rats with THC, no matter how hard they try! THC
is just too damn safe.
A pack of cigarettes -- Status: legal
Causes: 1,213 direct cancer deaths per day from
smoking cigarettes in the US. That's equal to four fully loaded jumbo
jets crashing and burning and not one single person walking away every
day in the U.S.!
\Cigarette smoking costs
more than $193 billion per year (i.e., $97 billion in lost productivity
plus $96 billion in health care expenditures).
Prescription Drug Overdoses: A U.S. Epidemic -- Status: Legal
Causes 74 deaths per day in U.S.
So, let's see: that's 1,993 deaths per day from four legal products
that you can buy all in the same day, and probably in one giant superstore!
1993 legal deaths per day vs. zero marijuana deaths, ever.
Cannabis is the safest plant-based medicine on the earth!
And prohibitionists have the nerve to say marijuana is dangerous?
hidden agenda is they see marijuana prohibition as a a growth industry
where corporate profits can be made by locking up young adults and
offering drug treatment. They make money by destroying other people's
And where are all the death certificates that list marijuana as the direct cause of death?
[Insert sound of crickets here]
Cannabis: it's not for everybody, but at least it will not kill you, no matter how much you consume.
FACT: zero deaths, ever!
topics for any prohibitionist who would like to enter our serious
national conversation about marijuana. Answers requested please.
If you believe marijuana damages young brains and destroys motivation,
how did the President, who was a serious marijuana smoker in his youth,
rise to the highest office in the land for two terms?
• Please give the nation a short history lesson -explain to the nation how marijuana became illegal in 1937 and why?
Please explain the catch-22 of not going after medical marijuana
patients, but raiding the clinics where these patients get their
medicine and jailing the providers, forcing the patients into the black
Outlawing marijuana because of outdated
fears of addiction and teen use is just a smokescreen; the reason goes
deeper than that. Cannabis as a therapeutic agent can eliminate the need
for alcohol, nicotine and many prescription drugs, and makes you so
calm you probably wouldn't want to shoot things, either.
Peanuts alone kill 100 people a year in the US. Imagine that! "Marijuana safer then peanuts!"
you know that if you go to a an E.R. for any reason and if, when your
history is being taken, you admit to smoking marijuana, your E.R. visit
is now coded in billing as a "an emergency room marijuana-related
That is how they generate their false anti-marijuana "data."
