The false hopes and promises by Big Marijuana are the lumps of coal under any tree. This industry claims there are no victims when it comes to the use of commercialized marijuana.
Tell that to Corinne Gasper,
who lost her daughter due to a high driver after he slammed his car into her’s going more than 80 miles an hour.
She, and others like her, have suffered because of this profits-over-people industry that will stop at nothing to become the next Big Tobacco- The last social disease this country had to face and one that took decades to bring under control.
Drugged driving any time of year is bad, but this holiday season when you’re enjoying your time with your family and friends, take a moment to remember all those who have suffered because of Big Marijuana and its unending rhetoric that pot is safe and harmless.
Recently, smart and informed voters in North Dakota
gave the industry the boot when they voted down a measure that would have legalized recreational marijuana. It will save countless lives on and off the roadways. But there is still much more work ahead as other states like Illinois, New Jersey,
and New York
consider similar proposals.
Please use the above information to promote the message that drugged driving is a growing problem that will only grow worse by allowing Big Marijuana to plant its claws into our society, our culture, and our lives.
Smart Approaches to Marijuana
(SAM) is a nonpartisan, non-profit alliance of physicians, policy makers, prevention workers, treatment and recovery professionals, scientists, and other concerned citizens opposed to marijuana legalization who want health and scientific evidence to guide marijuana policies. SAM has affiliates in more than 30 states. Evidence shows that marijuana – which has skyrocketed in average potency over the past decades – is addictive and harmful to the human brain
especially when used by adolescents. In states that have already legalized the drug, there has been an increase in drugged driving crashes, youth marijuana use,
and costs that far outweigh pot revenues.
These states have seen a black market that continues to thrive,
sustained disparities in marijuana arrest rates,
and tobacco company investment in marijuana.
