Californians approved pot legalization last November, but the impaired driver didn’t realize that driving after smoking is dangerous. The public shares much of this ignorance and technology has not caught up with policy. Law enforcement is scrambling to find good ways to test for and control stoned Continue reading →
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.

by Jeff Hunt, an opinion published in USA Today on August 7, 2017. Last week, Senator Cory Booker introduced the Marijuana Justice Act in an effort to legalize marijuana across the nation and penalize local communities that want nothing to do with this dangerous drug. This is the furthest reaching marijuana legalization effort to date and marks another sad moment in our nation’s embrace of a drug that will have generational consequences.
Our country is facing a drug epidemic. Legalizing recreational marijuana will do nothing that Senator Booker expects. We heard many of these same promises in 2012 when Colorado legalized recreational marijuana. Continue reading →
