Re: “David Couch has a new amendment ready for recreational marijuana as soon as approval polls show opportunity

30 states and counting have legalized medical cannabis! 9 states have fully legalized cannabis including: Washington, Maine, California, Vermont, Massachusetts, Nevada, Colorado, Oregon, Alaska plus Washington DC. Celebrate democracy at work with FREE states ending government corruption! Citizens demanding the return of their rights and their freedom!

Data from the Center for Disease Control proves that cannabis is safer than alcoholic beverages and tobacco products which are completely legal. Based on that fact alone CANNABIS SHOULD BE COMPLETELY LEGAL.

The Madness is over, Legalize Recreational Cannabis Nationwide!

Re: “UPDATES: Judge Griffen enjoins award of marijuana cultivation permits

I am 62 and have been consuming cannabis off and on for over 44 years. I am a husband, father, electrical engineer, successful business owner, musician, community volunteer and marathon runner. I never use alcoholic beverages or tobacco products. My health is excellent, and my memory is intact. I vaporize cannabis, no smoke, no smell, no problems. I finished my third marathon at Big Sur Marathon last April, first place in my division with a finish time of 3 hours, 25 minutes and 8 seconds. I'm just one of millions of health conscious Americans seeking the healthiest pathways forward in all aspects of my life. How long before the federal government quits lying to us and admits that cannabis is far safer than alcoholic beverages or tobacco?

Re: “UPDATE: Judge Griffen issues temporary restraining order in suit over marijuana permits

The U.S. Federal government's stance on cannabis is a blatant bold-faced lie. More evidence comes out every day proving that cannabis is much safer than alcoholic beverages or tobacco products. The DEA drug schedule has absolutely nothing to do with public safety and everything to do with politics and government corruption.

The DEA states that cannabis is more dangerous than Methamphetamine, Cocaine or Fentanyl!! Tobacco and Alcohol are not even on the DEA drug schedule.

* SCHEDULE 1 (the most dangerous drugs)
Heroin, LSD, Marijuana (cannabis), MDA (ecstasy)

* SCHEDULE 2 (supposedly less dangerous than cannabis)
Cocaine, Methamphetamine, Oxycodone, Fentanyl, Dexedrine.

* SCHEDULE 3 (supposedly less dangerous than cannabis)
Tylenol with codeine, Ketamine, Anabolic steroids, Testosterone.

Now compare the DEA drug schedule with figures directly from the CDC on numbers of deaths per year in the USA:

* Prescription Drugs: 237,485 + 5,000 traffic fatalities
* Tobacco: 480,000
* Alcohol: 88,013 + 16,000 traffic fatalities
* Cocaine: 4,906
* Heroin: 7,200
* Aspirin: 466
* Acetaminophen (Tylenol): 179
* Marijuana: 0, none, not a single fatal toxic overdose and almost no history of traffic problems.

The madness is over, Legalize nationwide!

Re: “Legislator calls for delay of marijuana permits until tax issue checked

Data from the Center for Disease Control proves that cannabis is safer than alcoholic beverages and tobacco products which are completely legal. Based on that fact alone CANNABIS SHOULD BE COMPLETELY LEGAL.

Re: “Advocates for medical marijuana gather at the Capitol

The days of Reefer Madness are over! Data from the Center for Disease Control proves beyond a shadow of doubt that cannabis is far safer than alcoholic beverages or tobacco products which are both completely legal. Based on this fact alone, cannabis should be completely legal as well.

Re: “Medical marijuana madness unfolds Tuesday

It's absolutely clear that Cannabis is in wide general use throughout the United States! Whether or not cannabis is legal does not seem to make much of a difference regarding popularity and consumption. It's perfectly clear that cannabis is much safer than booze. The only open question is who will profit from the sales of cannabis, organized crime and criminals, or legitimate business with regulation and Taxation?

The FBI estimates:

* 100 BILLION dollars in black market recreational cannabis sales every year here in the United States and all that money goes to criminals and organized crime.

* 30 BILLION is lost in potential tax revenue.

* 15 BILLION is wasted on the capture and persecution simple cannabis consumers.

Legalization solves all these problems and kicks organized crime out of the cannabis sales in favor of legitimate business.

Why legalize? Because cannabis is safer.

Figures directly from the CDC on numbers of deaths per year in the USA:

* Prescription Drugs: 237,485 + 5,000 traffic fatalities
* Tobacco: 480,000
* Alcohol: 88,013 + 16,000 traffic fatalities
* Cocaine: 4,906
* Heroin: 7,200
* Aspirin: 466
* Acetaminophen (Tylenol): 179
* Marijuana: 0, none, not a single fatal toxic overdose in all medical history and no significant statistical record of traffic problems.

Legalize, regulate, TAX!
