Here Are All The People Who Have Died From A Marijuana Overdose

Here Are All The People Who Have Died From A Marijuana Overdose

Commented Sep 3, 2013 at 18:24:05 in Politics

“Cannabis dopes not need to be the safest product ever, it just needs to be safer than the alternatives. It is safer than alcohol for those looking for intoxicants and it is safer than opiates for pain relief. This is why the alcohol and pharmaceutical industries have spent so much money to ensure prohibition remains. They have no way to compete against a product that works, is non-addictive and grows like a weed.”

“Not a single "sleep expert" has tried cannabis? By far the best sleep aid I have ever used. Sleep great for 6-8 hours and wake up ready for then ext day. I find it difficult to believe "sleep experts" have never tried it or are so unaware.”

“I have consistently refused to work for any company that thinks they are entitled to know what I do when not at work. Perhaps if the companies dropped their goofy drug testing they would be able to find people qualified for the jobs.”

“This is just politicians who are having trouble getting voters to pick them so instead they are trying to pick voters.

There is no voter fraud that photo ID fixes. The fraud that is happening is in absentee and registration. The only reason to come up with a fix to non-existent in-person voter fraud is to disenfranchise eligible voters. It should just be called treason.”

“It grows like a weed. To make money on cannabis companies should need to come up with a better product, not prohibit the growing of cannabis. Instead they will bribe politicians to enforce a ban on the growing of cannabis, so that consumers will be forced to buy from them.”

“Why would anyone need more proof than 4 out of 6 people Turnout knows?

I have had my card for cannabis for years. I have insomnia. I'm sure you would count me as one of the ones without sufficient medical ailment for your tastes. Luckily I don't care about your tastes.”

“Oh look, dking has an ailment, why do we need more proof than one person replying with a condition? I know for a fact that those four people do not have a condition because they told me. Do you have any proof that the majority of card holders DO have conditions?”

“The Pharmaceutical industry can not compete against cannabis. They have no business model that allows them to compete against a product that is healthy, lacks a long list of negative side effects, actually works and grows like a weed. They must bribe politicians to avoid a fair fight between their deadly products and non-lethal cannabis.”

“@dking
Well, Marijuana is just a product like any other product. I would assume (once its legal ) its methods of distribution wont differ from many other products. If this is not true can you elaborate on why Marijuana wont be like other products... Too many established vendors etc?”

“Neither Democrats or Republicans are ever going to voluntarily end prohibition. They both accept far too many donations from the prohibitionists. We are on our own. It is time to make it clear that prohibitionists are willing to trade lives for profits. Alcohol is much deadlier and addictive, and could never compete fairly with cannabis. Therefore they keep cannabis illegal and alcohol's customers continue to die from their product.”

“Just as segregation was once OK after slavery, but then we realized that segregation was a deprivation of the unalienable right to Liberty. Now people realize that each individual American has the individual inalienable right to Liberty an d that includes to marry another consenting adult without regard to race, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity or any other silly Group.

Discrimination based on group affiliation is as wrong as favoritism based on group affiliation. We have the inalienable right to Liberty.”
