Marijuana – why make it legal?

Progressive politicians always want to control what we eat, drink, or otherwise take in. So why do they want to legalize marijuana?

Years of bans on food and drink

Over these past few years what has been the main theme of the leftists concerning the American people and our health?

We hear from that knucklehead Mayor of New York City, that buying a 17 ounce soda is bad for your health, so he banned them.

The usurper’s wife continues to try to control eating fast foods while traveling all over the globe, searching, I guess, for the perfect health food. Or maybe she just likes traveling on your dime.

And smoking cigarettes? How could any self-respecting leftist politician allow the people to harm themselves using such a vile substance?

The list of dangerous things we are being protected from goes on and on and on, until we get to:

As blue States, one after the other, create more and more opportunity for legalization and increased usage of the initiative killing drug, one needs to ask, why?

A Canadian report, released in 2007, says marijuana smoke contains more toxic compounds, including ammonia and hydrogen cyanide, than tobacco smoke.

Researchers, including David Moir of the Safe Environments Program in Kitchener, Ontario, determined ammonia levels were 20 times higher in marijuana smoke than in tobacco smoke, while hydrogen cyanide, nitric oxide and certain amines occurred at levels 3-5 times higher in the marijuana smoke.

And while it can be argued that all chemical compounds are not hazardous to one’s health, the list of chemicals in marijuana, including those cited above, number close to 400.

Imagine this: toxic smoke drawn into one’s lungs, hot and unfiltered, and held there under pressure, as the concoction of chemicals and smoke are forced into the blood vessels of the lungs. It’s hard not to imagine that the dangers of marijuana may outweigh drinking a Super Sized Coke.

So the question is: why?

TPATH believes it is all part of the long term plan of the progressive leftists in this country to destroy initiative and clear thought as well as self reliance. Couple this with the destruction of family values, the easy free flow of welfare, the banning of God and religion and socialist indoctrination of our children, from day care to college, is the recipe to create Democratic voters.

For example, what side effects are there for even the casual reefer smokers?

  1. First and foremost, the desire to do anything except eat a Drake’s Ring Ding, is non-existent. (Oh, yeah! You can’t get Ring Dings anymore! Thank the bakers’ union for that.)
  2. The ability to think clearly on important issues, beyond where to make the next score, is severely impaired.
  3. Short term memory and the ability to add 2 + 2 become an unreachable concept.

How better to create a dependable, uneducated and uninformed voter base?
