The next time someone asks you, "Why is marijuana SAFER than alcohol?" You can say, "Cannabis is virtually non-toxic, is not associated with violent or aggressive behavior and is much less addictive than alcohol."

There are no recorded cases of overdose or fatalities attributed to cannabis, and the estimated lethal dose... is so high that it cannot be achieved by recreational users.

Some of my finest hours have been spent on my back veranda smoking hemp and observing as far as my eye could see.

Legalize, Tax and Regulate

The alcohol, tobacco and firearm industries are regulated and overseen by the ATF agency of the US government. So too should marijuana be regulated. By removing it from the criminal market, social harm can be addressed and minimized.  Regulation allows for age limits, safety, quality and labeling. The Criminal marketplace does not!

Neill Franklin, a retired Baltimore narcotics cop and head of LEAP, makes a case for legalizing marijuana. 

The laws against marijuana are the most vivid illustration of our government overstepping its authority...
— Gatewood Galbraith (Prominent Kentucky Political Figure)
“As one who has been entrusted with maintaining the public’s safety, I strongly believe— and most people agree— that our laws should punish people who do harm to others. But by banning the use of marijuana and punishing the individuals who merely possess the substance it is difficult to see the harm we are trying to prevent. From my own work and the experience of other members of the law enforcement community, it is abundantly clear that marijuana is rarely, if ever, the cause of disruptive or violent behavior. That marijuana causes very little social harm is reason enough in a free society to legalize it for adults.”
— Norm Stamper, former Chief of the Seattle Police Department

If you believe marijuana prohibition is more damaging than legalization, please support the cause. Start a conversation... Thanks! The folks @ Mistasc.org
