It’s okay to change your mind about pot use because your opinion is based on information produced and paid for by the alcohol and pharmaceutical industries over the past 50 years and more recently the prison industry has started some more bullshit.
You understand why they do this, don’t you? Legal weed reduces their profits.
Everything you read demonizing marijuana for medical or recreational use was created by lobbyists hired specifically to fight against all forms of marijuana acceptance and legalization. These are the same type of lobbyists hired by the tobacco industry to push for example.
Both industries promote less fact and misleading content under false pretences and worse; they provide all this bullshit to politicians. Hear any politician talk about weed. They hit all the alcohol talking points and big pharma pays for them (as donations).
Smart companies have already done their due diligence and are ready to expand into the legal weed market. Dumb corporations are still fighting by spending hundreds of millions of dollars trying to sway your opinion with myth-based propaganda so you don’t vote to legalize it.
But you know what’s even more disgusting and insulting to all Americans? It all started because President Richard Nixon wanted to punish hippies and black people. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, protests against the Vietnam War as well as black Americans demonstrating for their civil rights were commonplace across the country.
NOTE: Racist overtones and marijuana laws actually started in the early 1900s. First against Mexicans and soon after against black Americans. The laws have nothing to do with marijuana itself; only with the people who use it.
This bugged Nixon endlessly and he and his White House staff knew they couldn’t make it illegal to be a hippie or a black person, so they concocted the plan to change marijuana into a schedule 1 drug claiming it was for the health and safety of Americans. . In reality, it was changed so that law enforcement could start harassing and arresting hippies and black people.
Alcohol and Big Pharma said thank you Mr. President and worked hard for 50 years thinking of every possible way to convince you to believe that somehow legal marijuana will be the end of the civilization as we know it.
As it’s still illegal, they did their job remarkably well and unfortunately they pulled your wool so far that you actually believe their bullshit.
Let’s face the truth; people want to change their personality and get high. It’s been that way for hundreds of years and as far as I know it’s not going to change anytime soon.
Please tell me. What is the rationale for granting individuals the right to consume alcoholic beverages to get high? Is it personal freedom? or is it because most people can drink alcohol somewhat responsibly? Without a doubt, alcohol is the most dangerous drug in the world and yet it is perfectly legal.
These points alone call for instant marijuana legalization with the stroke of a pen.
What is the connection between Big Pharma and the legalization of cannabis?
Marijuana, in some cases, can do what a legal pharmaceutical does much safer and cheaper. Safer you say? There are no deaths attributable to marijuana. Not just this year or last year, but in recorded history!
For example; marijuana might be the best cure for insomnia. Weed is safer than any man made chemical remedy and if your doctor tells you it is better to use a sleeping pill or a standard remedy, you need a new doctor.
How sure am I? I hereby prescribe marijuana to all insomniacs. My prescription is to smoke or vape it 5 minutes before bed. I do not prescribe eating or drinking anything with THC to relieve insomnia; it’s just a waste!
If you drink alcohol or use prescribed medication for insomnia, pain, restless leg syndrome, anxiety, nausea, depression or a host of other ailments, please vote yes to all forms of marijuana legalization, especially in Ohio. The same relief or buzz you get from alcohol or a prescribed drug is the same relief I get from weed.
Keeping marijuana illegal is sophomoric, racist, and downright stupid.
