There is so much of law enforcement that are against the use and legalization of marijuana. However, we do have a gaining amount becoming more educated about it and getting behind legalization. It is only a matter of time until we get majority of people on our side for a full legalization of marijuana in the U.S. NORML has put together the top 5 things the police lie about with marijuana. All are completely ridiculous and somewhat offending to the me and the marijuana community.
#1) Marijuana’s not really medical. The government says so!
Tell that to the thousands of people in pain. Tell them it doesn’t help the pain go away. Tell that to our team member Tribute. I broke my collar bone, but was on probation and wasn’t able to smoke to take the pain away. Instead I had to take pain killers that made me sick.
#2) Doctors and scientists don’t approve of smoked medicine; they do approve of Marinol.
I do not know much about Marinol. I would love to see what it is like, but smoking it seems to have a better use for me.This may explain it more.
The American Medical Association said, “smoked cannabis reduces neuropathic pain, improves appetite and caloric intake especially in patients with reduced muscle mass, and may relieve spasticity and pain in patients with multiple sclerosis.”
#3) Marijuana smoke is much worse than cigarette smoke!
This is like saying taking vicodin is worse for your liver than taking percocets. They are both oxycodone and kill your liver. Much like cigarette smoke and marijuana smoke. They both contain a ton of harmful chemicals.
#4) Marijuana is the gateway drug to cocaine, meth, and heroin!
This video explains how I feel about the gateway theory. It isn’t a valuable theory at all. I have nothing else to say.
5) Marijuana legalization leads to carnage on the highways!
This is the most ridiculous statement of them all. Have they completely forgot about alcohol and that a drunk driving takes place every 45 minutes in the US. Nope because alcohol is legal, so they just pass right by that. We have all driven stoned. It is different and hard for some while it is no different for others. For me, it makes me more aware because I know I am stoned. I do more to make sure I’m obeying the laws of driving. I do know I’m disobeying the law by driving high, but laws are sometimes meant to be broken. Like for the use of marijuana.
