I just found this story in my local paper, thought I would share. It is about a local court testimony on the perils of marijuana.
Essentially the hoax says, January 1st 2014 when marijuana was made legal in Colorado 37 people died. And since it has become legal people are dropping like flies. It is a public health epidemic and must be made illegal again, in order to save lives!
Of course it is a hoax. Simple because it is legal or illegal does not make it cause death. But the police chief sited the hoax when testifying in Maryland legalization hearings.
Lesson learned Police Chief.
All those lives lost to imprisonment for marijuana. All those lies, all that bull. Now it is all the opponents have left. It was an internet hoax, someone believed it and it was in turn testified in court as truth.
I hope that some of this new found tax money in CO and WA, will go to aiding the metal illness community as well as paving roads, and reducing debt. Because I believe it will bring out mental illness problems in the general population but its better than putting these folks in jail.
