These days we keep hearing about "legalizing marijuana for recreational use", but what it really appears to be is an attempt to legalize marijuana as a far safer alternative to alcohol.  According to the CDC, alcohol kills 80,000 people every year in the U.S. while marijuana kills none, and marijuana's addiction potential is about on par with coffee. Since marijuana is unquestionably milder, safer and less addictive than alcohol, we could GREATLY reduce the amount of harm and addiction in society by giving people the right to switch from the more harmful drug, alcohol, to the less harmful drug, marijuana.

Alcohol is significantly more harmful and more addictive than marijuana, while the prohibition on marijuana fuels criminal activity and funds organized crime. We need to contact our legislators and tell them to legalize marijuana like beer and wine.

According to the CDC, alcohol kills 80,000 people every year in the U.S. while marijuana kills none, and marijuana's addiction potential is only about that of coffee. 

 

Since marijuana is far safer and far less addictive than alcohol, we could GREATLY reduce the amount of harm and addiction in society by giving people the right to switch from the more harmful drug, alcohol, to the less harmful drug, marijuana. Currently, paranoid old men keep marijuana illegal and make our children LESS safe.

And that would be a good thing. 

 

The only thing is though, people can't switch to marijuana while marijuana's illegal. That's where we come in - we have to tell *our* legislators to legalize marijuana like wine.
