Re: “Vermont AG: It's Illegal for Businesses to 'Gift' Marijuana

There is an easy answer to this problem, simply legalized recreational Cannabis retail sales throughout the state. The CDC shows that cannabis is far safer to consume than alcoholic beverages and tobacco products which are freely sold throughout Vermont. Cannabis should be no different!

Re: “On Opening Day, Vermont Legislature Advances Marijuana Legalization

The US government's stance on cannabis is a blatant bald-faced lie. More evidence comes out every day proving that cannabis is far 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.

According to the DEA cannabis has no medical value and is more dangerous than Methamphetamine, Cocaine or Fentanyl!! Note also that Tobacco and Alcohol are not even on the DEA drug schedule.

* Schedule 1 (most dangerous drugs with no medical value):
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.

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

Re: “Two Notorious Crashes Fuel Marijuana Legalization Debate

On average 43 Americans are killed every single day buy alcohol intoxicated drivers! That is over 16,000 Americans killed every year by boozed-up drivers.
On average 13 Americans are killed every day by pharmaceutical drug intoxicated drivers! That is over 5,000 Americans killed every year by drivers intoxicated on legal pharmaceutical drugs. Incidence of traffic fatalities caused solely by cannabis intoxication or so rare that not a single police agency in the United States even keeps a statistic. A thorough search of news articles over the past 5 years shows that 4 traffic fatalities have been published showing cannabis as the sole cause for a traffic fatality. It is absolutely clear that cannabis is far safer than alcoholic beverages, tobacco products or pharmaceutical drugs which together are directly responsible for over 650,000 American deaths each year. Based on this data legalization should go forward immediately with the hope that folks currently using pills, booze and tobacco would shift to cannabis as a safer alternative.

Re: “Two Notorious Crashes Fuel Marijuana Legalization Debate

16,000+ traffic fatalities a year are directly attributable to alcohol intoxication and over 5,000 more to pharmaceutical drugs. Automobile fatalities in which cannabis is cited as the sole reason for the accident are so rare that not a single police agency in the United States even keeps a statistic. So which is safer?

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.
