We got opioids wrong, but marijuana is worse

Please share this post with every concerned parent you know! Spread the Word about Pop Pot!

By a parent from Colorado

I have spoken to 4 moms in the past 24 hours whose children have died of opioids or heroin overdoses. Each and every one of them started their addiction with marijuana.

Are all of you outraged about the 60 Minutes report on how the pharmaceutical industry and the federal government purposely allowed the opioids crisis to explode?

Well, so am I! It’s shameful!

Gummies in the shape of hearts and stars are still allowed, even though Colorado passed new rules to ban candies in the shape of animals.

Now wait until the marijuana industry comes to your state. They are worse. They make high potency products that have NEVER been tested or studied before. Their products come in deceptive forms to disguise use. They don’t have to list the harms, risks, doses or frequency.  They call smoked marijuana medication, and they are worse than the tobacco industry.  Budtenders act like pharmacists and doctors without the medical degree.  They advertise their products in our local newspaper. They market to our children because they know they need more and future users.

The Latest HIDTA Report

Now in Colorado, they are filling the media with lies since the latest Rocky Mountain HIDTA report came out.  It says that Colorado youth rank #1 in the nation for marijuana use. They are actually claiming that marijuana has decreased the opioid crisis!  If the opioid crisis has decreased, it is because the medical community is becoming more aware and are changing their practices.

What the marijuana industry doesn’t want you to know, is that they have a great relationship with the cartels. They trade their marijuana for the cartels’ heroin. Our opioid use is going down but our heroin use is skyrocketing! Marijuana alone is harmful enough but now the marijuana industry is saying marijuana is a cure for opioids addiction. What a total lie!

What about those 4 women whose children died? Their children tried to get off heroin by using marijuana! It doesn’t work.  These children died and these parents are speaking out, but who is listening!?

Editor’s Note: A year ago, Pueblo, Colorado, physicians explained the drug crisis in videos.
