Governments Spend Billions of $$$ a Year Fighting a Plant That Hasn't Killed Anyone - Ever.

"A smoker would theoretically have to consume nearly 1,500 pounds of marijuana within about fifteen minutes to induce a lethal response."
by FRANCIS L YOUNG, Administrative Law Judge
"Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law and Decision." for the United States Department of Justice and Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA)
September 6, 1988

When Alcohol, Nicotine, Prescription Drugs and even Coffee KILL thousands upon thousands of people every year, how can it be that Cannabis is illegal? 100% of the studies done at dozens of American universities and research facilities show medical history does not record anyone dying from an overdose of marijuana (UCLA, Harvard, Temple, etc.) But here it is, almost TWENTY-ONE Years after this study was released and countries the world over are still waging an unwinnable "War on Cannabis".

Please read and pass on Jack Herer's "How Dangerous is Marijuana Compared with other Substances?" and ask yourself just how any government, knowing this information, can justify keeping cannabis illegal especially when alcohol and cigarettes are not. Ask yourself why those substances are legal and cannabis is not.

If citizens could cheaply grow their own medicine, and grow their own recreational herb, this would not sit well with Big Pharma and Big Alcohol. Legalizing cannabis also threatens the livelihoods of law enforcement (DEA, RCMP), government prosecutors, defense lawyers, and incarceration facilities with the loss of BILLIONS of dollars a year that they receive in the "PROHIBITION INDUSTRY".

Regardless of the American origin of this information, I believe these same truths apply to Canada as well.

Blog Update: Please check out this new book comparing alcohol and cannabis.

Former Seattle Police Chief Norm Stamper of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition discusses the highly acclaimed new book, "Marijuana Is Safer: So why are we driving people to drink?", to which he contributed the foreword.

  2. lol, Steve, I believe a lot of people are happily willing to give it a try! ;-)
