Key Points

It’s Complicated

The drug legalizers confuse reasonable and compassionate people with false data and foster emotional issues about “medical marijuana” for the chronically ill, Vietnam Vets and those who really need medical care.  Reasonable citizens might support these claims because they are caring people and want to help.

However there is a massive confusion of laws, initiatives, and programs that are conflicting and complicated because the real intention of too many pot proponents is really to legalize all drugs to make money, get high and avoid responsibility for our youth, our communities and our future.

The Answer’s Simple

While the issues are complicated; the answer’s simple.

  • Marijuana is against the law – Under the federal Controlled Substances Act, marijuana is a Schedule 1 substance because it has a high potential for abuse, has no currently accepted medical use, and there is a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision.
  • Federal law supersedes State law – Article VI of the Constitution says federal law prevails over state laws when the laws conflict.  State leaders who act contrary to Federal law are putting their people, employees, law enforcement and others at risk of law suits, reduced federal funding support, and health hazards while breaching their oath of office to protect the law.
  • Medicine is not smoked – medicine is controlled by the FDA and doctors can prescribed it to help their patients.  Smoking is not healthy and marijuana has even more cancer-causing carcinogens than tobacco.  Marinol is an FDA-approved pill form of marijuana that doctors can prescribe, but it is illegal for doctors to prescribe marijuana because it is not proven safe.
  • Marijuana is addictive – The potency in marijuana today is 5-10 times more than it was in the 1960’s due to cultivation methods and technology.  One in 11 people will become addicted.  Treatment centers have more marijuana patients admitted each year. In 2009, marijuana was involved in 376,000 emergency room visits nationwide. That costs taxpayers a lot of money!
  • Youth rate rise with more availability and reduced perception of risk – the lies about “it’s just a plant”, “it can’t hurt you” and “no one can tell you what to do with your body” are just lies.  The truth is that increased youth rates reduce graduation rates, increase crime rates, and affect longer-term health and well being of our future generations.  The desire for another “high” leads users to stronger drugs further masking their troubles and postponing a dose of reality.
  • Driving under the influence increases accidents – national studies show that the one in 6 people fatally injured in 2009 were under the influence of drugs.  Imagine thousands of stoned drivers on the highway with you on your drive to work or taking your family out to dinner.
  • Social Costs out-weight tax Income ten to one – the argument that taxing drugs could benefit government budgets misses the fact that we spend $10 in social costs for every dollar in tax income on alcohol and tobacco.  It is a losing proposition; throwing good money after bad.
  • Marijuana is not healthy – a board-certified Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist and an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Colorado, claimed:  In the absence of credible data, this debate is being dominated by bad science and misinformation from people interested in using medical marijuana as a step to legalized recreational use. Bypassing the FDA’s well-established approval process has created a mess that especially affects children and adolescents. Young people, who are clearly being targeted with medical marijuana advertising and diversion, are most vulnerable to developing marijuana addiction and suffering from its lasting effects.

    It suppressed my hunger for food without needing these feelings
    of famished myself personally. I started with the capsule 3
    2 or 3 weeks before consuming 2 capsules thirty minutes ahead of meal.
    I usually have very good lunch time daily meals. But what designed the real difference was after my
    exercise routine, I no more binged for foods.
    I could final the night with 2 crackers as well
    as a window of milk products. No longer late night large foods.

    And following 21 days or weeks with the plan, I dropped 17 lbs and that i lowered from
    the 32 pant measurement to 29. I’ve never sensed more compact such
    as this well before, this in 3 weeks, couldn’t request far more!
