Deaths by Marijuana Prohibition
Marijuana is a non-toxic herb that was categorized as a schedule 1 controlled substance so a few could profit. It has been known by most intellectuals that the current marijuana law is more dangerous to society than marijuana its self.
We have had several deaths in the US this year that were marijuana victims killed by law enforcement officers, from shootings to tazering of marijuana users whose lives were ended from choking on marijuana they were trying to swallow. It is so sad that marijuana prohibition is responsible for dozens of deaths each year.
But we still have those that fear legalization no matter the cost to society or individual users. Law Enforcement is to addicted to their marijuana prohibition profits and fear having to work fighting real crime.
Many of us think our society would be much better off if marijuana prohibition was ended to save lives and strengthen our economy. As one California business owner recently stated:
“The marijuana patches don’t bother me,” Miller said. “But I don’t like the shootouts.”
Lets make our world a better place for all of us!
Taxation not Prohibition!
