A teen in Massachusetts smoked pot with another teen and then killed him. Also last week, details emerged about a teen in Alaska who killed another teen over weed. When there’s marijuana, crime happens
At the same time news came out about a man in West Virginia who sexually assaulted and killing the his girlfriend’s baby girl. The couple smoked pot the evening before it happened.
Beginning Thursday, Massachusetts is poised to allow home grows of twelve plants which will service the black market for marijuana. The state needs to prepare people and warn people of increase in this type of violence.
Certain people become highly delusional under the influence of marijuana, and have strange visions. On November 25, a stoned driver had intense fear of a construction worker and ran over him with his vehicle.
If marijuana didn’t affect the brain, people would not hallucinate and kill so frequently under its influence.. Certain people stay in the state marijuana-induced psychosis for a very long time.
If the psychosis turns into schizophrenia, marijuana makes the condition worse. A 19-year-old fraternity boy in Florida, who killed a couple in Florida, also started eating them. THC was the only drug in his system and his father says there is schizophrenia in the family.
Also in Florida, the day after Thanksgiving, a babysitter got stoned and let the child drown.
Legalization Does Not Free the Police
We wonder why marijuana legalization advocates say: “Legalize to free police for more serious crimes.” There are far too many stories showing that marijuana increases crime.
In Colorado, prosecutors have noticed an increase in murders motivated by marijuana, since legalization.
Humboldt County, California, principle pot-growing region of the USA, has a murder rate that far exceeds national averages.
On the first day of legalization in Washington state in 2012, two people were murdered when they tried to steal a marijuana grow.
Earlier this year, murderers killed eight family members in southern Ohio, revealing a massive marijuana growing business.
Since Massachusetts allows huge home grows, it probably won’t be long before police will be investigating such murders. Obviously voters didn’t understand Question 4. The marijuana advocates in Massachusetts are laughing right now.Stop Pot is a non-partisan grassroots campaign started by citizens concerned about the damaging health effects, both physical and mental, of marijuana. We are also concerned about the impact of marijuana on the environment.
