Marijuana Legalization Downside Revealed in New Film

 

 

Movie is Wake Up Call for Politicians to Heed

Drug Free Idaho just introduced their one hour documentary about the mounting social ills of the marijuana “experiment.” It features interviews with concerned residents and drug prevention experts in states like California, Colorado, Washington and Oregon. This film counters the lies told by the  commercial marijuana industry and their phalanx of lobbyists. This drug will not result in a boon of tax revenue, it does not eliminate crime and the black market, and most importantly, it deteriorates the quality of life in any state that tries it.

StopPot urges politicians around the world to check out the unintended consequences of turning this illicit drug into a commercial widely advertised and available commodity.

Jo McGuire, an expert on marijuana and the workplace said this in the film, “Once THC got over 5%, that is when we saw the first marijuana dependent syndrome diagnoses. It is actually in the DSM5.” Yet the marijuana industry still claims marijuana is not an addictive drug. This is an example of the outright lies they spread. We know for a fact that at least 9% of users will become addicted and 16% if they are younger than 17 when they start. The numbers may even be higher with the new high potency pot and edible products.

Please take the time to watch this important one hour video. We urge you to send this blog post to others.  The more people who see this film, the sooner will end the bamboozling of the voting public. We link to “Chronic State” in its entirety, below.

What are People  Saying about “Chronic State”

Several drug prevention experts were interviewed after seeing the Chronic State documentary at its world premiere. Listen to their reviews of this film.

Wildfires in West Fueled, Made Worse by Marijuana

By July 13, the Spring Creek Fire had burned 108,045 acres and destroyed at least 145 homes, making it the third-largest wildfire in Colorado history.  Ever since Colorado legalized marijuana in 2012 state officials have shown that they cannot regulate marijuana, harming the freedom, safety and property of non-users. Take Jesper Joergensen, the man responsible for starting this fire which spanned Costilla and Huerfano counties in southern Colorado. Joergensen’s Facebook posts were anarchist and pro-cannabis. We know pot can cause brain damage and mental illness leading to crime and violence. And with the potency of the most active chemical, delta 9 tetrahyracannabinol (THC), now 10-20 times stronger than 30 years ago. Continue reading Wildfires in West Fueled, Made Worse by Marijuana

The Heat: Canada’s Decision to Legalize Mind-Altering Drug, Marijuana

On June 20, 2018 Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ushered in a new era of drug addiction, announcing that recreational marijuana will become legal on October 17, 2018.  Canadians will now be able to consume marijuana recreationally without criminal penalties.  Despite studies suggesting a connection between pot and bipolar disorder or schizophrenia and Trudeau’s own mother suffering from marijuana-induced mental illness, Trudeau is leading his country straight towards the abyss of mental illness and harm.  His pro-marijuana policy is making light of kids and young adults who died as a result of using marijuana.  Their stories deserve to be heard — legalizing recreational pot is spitting in the face of mothers who have lost their children.

With the wheels in motion set for marijuana legalization in Canada founder of Citizens Against Legalizing Marijuana, Carla Lowe sat down with three pro pot activists to discuss the marijuana harms and repercussions for Canada under pot legalization.  Watch Lowe on The Heat below:

Opinion: Sadistic Murders and Marijuana

Slaughtered Innocents: Marijuana’s Vicious Legacy

by Deforest Rathbone

The recent stabbing slaughter of the 3-year-old birthday girl at her birthday party in Boise Idaho is the latest horrific example of soaring rates of the murder of innocents by vicious drug-enraged psychopathic maniacs.

News of that blood-soaked tragedy came on the same day as toxicology reports were published documenting marijuana use by the Travis County Texas Church shooter who slaughtered innocent children and other church-goers there last year.

A major contributor to the growing frequency of such massacres of innocents is the failure of most government and health officials to conduct and publish the results of forensic drug testing of all such suspects to disclose the ”Unknown Cause” often cited in most other massacres.

That verification of marijuana use by the mass murderer in the Texas Church massacre adds to the growing evidence that marijuana is a major driving force behind other sadistic mass murder of innocents.

Others follow:

The mass shooter who blew Rep. Gabby Giffords’ brains out was found to be a big pot user.

A teenager ambushed a police station in Fairfax County, Virginia, and shot and killed two police officers before he could taken down.  The teen’s father smoked marijuana with him and his high school friends and allowed access to the guns used in the crime.

Another sadistic child slaughter and the murderer’s connection to marijuana is documented in news accounts of the knife slaughter of an innocent 8-year-old child at play in Alexandria, Virginia.

The involvement of marijuana in senseless violence has been documented in thousands of other mass murders. But in their commitment to deification of pot, nearly all journalists fail to ask for drug test results in reporting these otherwise unexplainable horrific incidents. With many scientific studies now documenting the connection between marijuana use and irrational violent behavior, legislation will be needed to force the truth to be publicized.

But with massive amounts of drug money influencing lawmakers to continue enabling the marijuana traffickers to expand their poison markets throughout this nation, such legislation will not happen without endangered and terrorized citizens rising up and throwing out of office all drug-money-corrupted public officials and hug-a-thug politicians. They are the ultimate driving force behind such tragedies as the huge Las Vegas mass shooting, the Boston Marathon bombing, soaring school shootings, the recent Annapolis newsroom murders and now this horrific defenseless child’s birthday party stabbing death.

Only then will we be able to elect and appoint statesmen and women who will expose the truth about marijuana to free our people from the slavery of drug addiction and its resulting death and destruction.

Growing mass murders, soaring drug-related depression, suicide and overdose deaths all due to an “Unknown Cause?” This trend will spiral upward unless this nation wakes up from its denial.

IT’S MARIJUANA, STUPID!

We need to begin punishing those responsible commensurate with the horror, tragedy and grief currently destroying children, families and communities throughout this nation.
