Mr. Munchie has it all wrong–marijuana is more dangerous

Mr. Munchie is spinning lies and creating the next generation of couch potatoes.

“Safer than Alcohol” is a Junk Talking Point and Totally Untrue

by Mad Dad

Mason Tvert should be in an orange jump suit, if they make them that large. I think he only weighed 99 lbs when he started his campaign of lies. He is living proof that pot gives one the munchies.

When he and two colleagues wrote “Marijuana is SAFER, so why are we driving people to drink?” in 2009, the average potency of pot had already climbed to 6- 8% in smoked form. It wasn’t safer than alcohol even then. But in smoked form today it runs about 25 % THC (+/-) and as high as 37%. Since that time, concentrates have come into play for edibles, dabbing and vaping that are as high as 99%. Didn’t phase Mr. Munchie!

The disadvantages of this bill far outweigh the possible benefits.”  Based on actual experience at similar sites in Canada, one can easily agree. While the stated intent of the bill was to reduce overdose deaths, experience in Toronto showed a 63% increase (303 deaths) from 2016 to 2017. In all of Ontario, there were 1,265 overdose deaths in 2017.

Grey Balloon Day is NON-CELEBRATION AS CANADA LEGALIZES Marijuana

October 17, 2018 is not a day for celebration, as Canada is vastly ill-prepared for such an enormous change in public policy.   On that day, Canada breaks with long-standing international drug prevention partners, including the United States. Canada walks away from the three UN Drug Conventions, as violates articles within The Rights of the Child Treaty.  In response, concerned citizens rally under the banner – “A Grey Balloon Day For Canada “- Legal Marijuana is Nothing To Celebrate.
