Re: “Scott Vetoes Marijuana Legalization in Vermont

Some of our politicians and lawmakers would rather destroy the lives of citizens and veterans than stand up to their masters at big booze, private prisons and pharmaceutical corporations and legalize cannabis.

All the information needed for a decision on cannabis legalization has already been collected and can be found at the Center for Disease Control.

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

* Prescription Drugs: 237,485 + 5000 traffic fatalities
* Tobacco: 390,323
* 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 5,000 years of continuous use and almost no traffic problems.

So, which is safer???? Legalize, regulate, TAX!

Re: “Marijuana Legalization Bill Hits Vermont Governor's Desk

Cannabis prohibition assures that children of any age will have easy access to cannabis because criminals don't discriminate. Cannabis prohibition assures that the hundred billion dollars spent yearly in the United States for recreational Cannabis will go straight into the pockets of organized crime and criminals. It is absolutely clear that cannabis is far safer than alcoholic beverages or tobacco which together are killers responsible for over 500,000 deaths per year according to the Center for Disease Control.

Re: “Vermont Senate Votes 21-9 for Marijuana Legalization

Vermont voters take close note of those politicians who vote against legalization. These are the politicians and lawmakers that are corrupt and answer to either organized crime or big International corporations who are against legalization for financial reasons. Anyone who's done their homework knows that cannabis is by far safer than alcohol and tobacco which together are responsible for over 500,000 deaths per year in the United States alone.

Re: “Vermont Senate Votes 16-13 to Legalize Marijuana

Great news! It seems like critical mass has finally been reached and the dominoes are falling. I think we are likely to legalize fully here in California this year. Our last attempt was thwarted by a massive influx of cash from Big Pharma and big alcohol pumping negative ads. Since then I think people have wised up.

Legalize, regulate and tax!

Re: “Marijuana Legalization Headed for Senate Vote

All the data needed for an informed decision on cannabis legalization has already been collected and can be found at the CDC web site.

When looking at relative products safely the first thing that should be analyzed as how many people are killed.

Figures directly from the CDC dot gov web site on numbers of deaths per year in the USA
* Prescription Drugs: 237,485 + 5000 traffic fatalities
* Tobacco: 390,323
* 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 overdose in all medical history and almost no traffic problems.

So, which is safer????

Re: “A Journalist and MS Patient Tries Medical Marijuana

Destroying peoples lives over cannabis is just plain stupidity and has nothing to do with relative public safety. If it did, alcohol would be illegal and cannabis would be legal.

I am 59 and have been using cannabis for 42 years. I'm a husband, father, musician, electronics engineer, community volunteer and successful business owner. I vaporize cannabis (no smoke, no smell, no problems). I am in excellent health and I run 25-30 miles per week and finished a Marathon last May in 3hrs, 54mins. I am just the tip of a very large iceberg! Critical mass has been reached! How long do we have to suffer the lies and ridiculous nonsense from a government whose own studies have shown cannabis nearly harmless by comparison to prescription drugs, tobacco and booze??

Legalize, regulate and TAX!

Re: “Pot — or Not? Vermont's Looming Fight Over Marijuana Legalization

Cannabis is not harmless, but by comparison to alcohol, tobacco and pharmaceutical drugs, (serial killers which cause the death of over 650,000 Americans every year) it is way less dangerous.

All the data needed to make an informed decision on cannabis legalization can be found at the CDC web site. Nothing complicated or hard to understand.

Figures directly from the CDC dot gov web site on numbers of deaths per year in the USA.

* Prescription Drugs: 237,485 + 5000 traffic fatalities
* Tobacco: 390,323
* Alcohol: 88,013 + 16,000 traffic fatalities
* Cocaine: 4,906
* Heroin: 3,365
* Aspirin: 466
* Acetaminophen (Tylenol): 179
* Marijuana: 0, none, not a single fatal overdose in all medical history and almost no traffic problems.

So, which is safer????

Legalize it, regulate it, TAX it!
