    There is absolutely no doubt now that the majority of Americans want to completely legalize marijuana nationwide. Our numbers grow on a daily basis.

    The prohibitionist view on marijuana is the viewpoint of a minority and rapidly shrinking percentage of Americans. It is based upon decades of lies and propaganda.

    Each and every tired old lie they have propagated has been thoroughly proven false by both science and society.

    Their tired old rhetoric no longer holds any validity. The vast majority of Americans have seen through the sham of marijuana prohibition in this day and age. The number of prohibitionists left shrinks on a daily basis.

    With their credibility shattered, and their not so hidden agendas visible to a much wiser public, what’s left for a marijuana prohibitionist to do?

    Maybe, just come to terms with the fact that Marijuana Legalization Nationwide is an inevitable reality that’s approaching much sooner than prohibitionists think, and there is nothing they can do to stop it!

    Legalize Nationwide!…and Support All Marijuana Legalization Efforts!

      Prohibitionists always use terms like “INVOLVED” , “RELATED” or “LINKED” when they tout these horrific sounding statistics and claims. Because they can’t ever prove marijuana impairment alone to be the actual “CAUSE” of anything detrimental.

    Accident frequency goes up by 12.5% in Colorado. Yeah, not because of weed. It’s because more people moved in (presumably to smoke weed) but that doesn’t mean they were high when they got into an accident. It’s because that state has a severe infrastructure problem and doesn’t feel the need to build more highways and insists on cramming as many people into the smallest amount of space possible. Of course you are going to have more collisions when there are more cars and smaller parking lots. This is exactly why I got the hell out of there……induced claustrophobia.

    This study should have focused on the amount of DWI/DUI confirmed accidents resulting in a collision.

    Notwithstanding the decades of wives’ tales, furor regarding marijuana use and the obvious propaganda effort in this piece, with freedom must come responsibility and being high behind the wheel is NOT responsible.
