Sen McConnell: Marijuana use leads to Death!!

Just when you think the Republican insanity is ebbing...

Mitch McConnell To Constituent: Marijuana Leads To Death

Quote:
He is also "troubled" by the fact that many legalization proposals would make marijuana available to the public "without following the scientific processes" of the Food and Drug Administration, McConnell said.

McConnell then cites a medical marijuana bill introduced by Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) and raises concerns about what could happen if it became law -- death.

"Because of the harm that substances like marijuana and other narcotics pose to our society, I have concerns about this legislation. The detrimental effects of drugs have been well documented: short-term memory loss, loss of core motor functions, heightened risk of lung disease, and even death," McConnell wrote.


ZOMG drugs R BAD FINALWORD TRUST ME THEY KILL END OF STORY!!

I'm boggled by the whole testing process for the FDA - since it seems to consist of companies giving them lots of money to bypass it, and has since at least the days of Nutrasweet being introduced.

Also, love how all drugs are bad, unless they want to give us drugs to make our steak taste better, while having death as a side effect.... O.o

There's no mystery here, everyone and the dogs knows MJ is illegal because of the financial and political ramifications of unregulated Hemp farming on foresters and cotton producers. They use the "negative" effects of MJ as a handy political smoke screen.

My brother, who is a former deputy sheriff, explained to his county DA once that the biggest threat from marijuana use was if all the Cheetos disappeared from grocery shelves.

There would also be a surge in cartoon network viewing.

I did know of someone who died from a drug overdose - because she kept throwing up and kept taking fresh pills..... I've never known of someone who died from a pot overdose though.

Don't forget the alcohol producers lobby. They're huge in lobby efforts against legalization.

I did hear of one case about a decade back, where a man in England did die of THC overdose. But according to the story, he smoked about a pound a day for years (and having many years ago smoked some incredibly weak-ass homegrown that took about an ounce for a decent buzz, that's not too hard to believe in and of itself).

I can't find the article, of course, which means it was likely an urban myth/scare tactic story with a big dollop of whipped bullshit on top. But even if it were true, that would be a) a HELL of a lot of pot, and b) ONE reported case since the plant has been cultivated for recreational purposes.

Perhaps because the FDA has made it their sole purpose to continually lie about all manner of drugs if they happen to threaten a set of leading industries in the United States which of course, calls into question their "rigorous scientific process?"

If you think pot is bad, the problems with dihydrogen monoxide (DHMO) are incredible.

the funny thing is I don't even smoke so have no dog in the fight, but I can still see that the climate against it in the establishment is BS.

The biggest problem with legalization is that they can't easily spot test for it, for instance in the case of a driver.... of course driving laws should be based on behavior, not circumstance, but that's one of the big reasons the establishment is scared of it.

Also the big Pharmaceutical companies do not want to legalize cannibus so that they can make money on drugs like painkillers that people become addicted to.

If I smoke to much, I just get a sinus headache that goes away after I take a break.

I have chronic pain, and often choose to just deal with it over side effects and concern over becoming hooked on painkillers.

the easiest way to keep MJ users off the road is to make it mandatory to sell MJ packaged with a munchybag of choice.

Last thing I wanna do after smoking is drive. I'd be yelling WOAH! or AH SHIT! every 5 seconds... and that's just getting out of the driveway.
