“I agree marijuana is misunderstood. The government, and big pharma approve hundreds of pills that may have lethal side effects, or so many side effects you can't keep count. What amazes me is the fact they approve pills with names that take me years to pronounce, yet a plant, is considered more dangerous. I live in Colorado myself, and the world isn't ending.”

“In 2009, 26,000 deaths from prescription medicines.
Deaths caused by marijuana...not a single one in recorded history.
Several years ago, I had surgery on my right shoulder. Pain medication was prescribed..."take one capsule every 4 hours."
I took one capsule.
I was down for over 20 hours. When I came to, I felt like I had been hit by a truck. The next time I felt discomfort, I smoked a small amount of marijuana ...pain gone, no after effects.
I threw the pills out.
Then I wrote:
Shoulda Robbed a Bank
My contribution to helping point out just how ludicrous our pot laws truly are.
I would be honored by your review.”

“Sorta. They approve hundreds of pills that *DO* have lethal side-effects. In 2010 alone, there were 14,000 overdose-fatalities because of prescription drugs. Cannabis, however, has never had a single recorded death. Not a one.”
