  1. Here’s a quote for you that is the heart of the issue:
    “Whether legal or not, if someone wants to use cannabis they will, if they don’t they won’t! The only question is who gets the billions in sales, the US economy or drug dealers?”

  2. Cannabis consumption is crowdfunding of violence. American cannabis users are and have been funding violence against our soldiers in Afghanistan, in our streets and around the world. The idea cannabis users are concerned about violence is ludicrous.

    There is a reason child soldiers are given cannabis.

  3. My impression is the main ‘pushers’ of the legalization movement are the heavy users! We ought not buy in to their arguments. They may be the sanest among their crowd, but they have no regard for the weakest among them who are prone to mental health issues as a result of heavy use/addiction.

    1. Excellent way of stating the problem! Also note that Knox, Ward, Anthony, Arias and the younger Tsarnaev with below age 21 at the time of heavy use. We need to hold these people out as examples for our children as a warning that they should not try it.
