Vote NO on Prop 205: “Recreational” marijuana is no party

(Before It's News)

The proponents of legalization of recreational marijuana have an agenda and it has nothing to do with the reliable string puller of  “getting more money into the classroom.” Rather than helping children, Proposition  205 is actually a negative factor in their lives, impacting brain development, cognitive thinking and memory. Today we bring you the Arguments Filed In Opposition to the passage of this intentionally cast-in-stone law, which is written in such a manner that it cannot be amended.

Members of the medical, legal, educational, faith-based. public safety and business communities along with elected officials and private citizens who have been personally impacted by the drug epidemic that has ravaged families, have come together to explain the negatives associated with the passage of Prop. 205  The downside to passage is monumental, as evidenced by data available from  Alaska, Colorado, Oregon and Washington, states which passed legalization and are now dealing with the consequences. The potency of today’s marijuana is as high as 60% — compared to marijuana of the 1970s with THC levels — the psychoactive chemical that makes people high, then often at less than 1 percent.

Retail dispensaries can be located just 500 feet from schools The drug is marketed as edibles, snacks and candies to appeal to children. Ingesting the drug in this form tends to be two or three times as potent as marijuana that is smoked

Pot smoking is not benign. It’s important to acknowledge that marijuana has distinctly detrimental effects particularly for teens and young adults, whose brains are still developing,. creating a crisis of addiction and mental health problems and increasing DUI deaths and pediatric THC exposure.

Fox News reports a recent study by AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety reveals fatal car crashes involving pot have doubled in Washington state which legalized the drug for ‘recreational’ use.. CBS Denver reports Colorado hospitals are seeing increasing numbers of newborns testing THC-Positive

Because the devastation is so great and the arguments in favor of this issue are so misleading, we have chosen not to print the link to them.

  • I find it funny that people who are against recreational marijuana have no problem injecting their children with poisonous vaccines, feeding them GMO’s that cause cancer and other problems, buy them technology that fries their brains, water with rat poison in it and all the chemtrails we have been breathing. BUT OMG LET”S MAKE A BIG STINK OVER MARIJUANA.

    anyone still pushing this bullshit is a paid troll of big pharma. they are terrified of losing their 3.7 trillion a year monopoly over your health.

    they have hit squads. trolls on payroll. AND they know that marijuana acts a a shield to scalar technology that manipulates your brainwaves. They want to be able to mind control people easier and marijuana gets in the way.

    SO TAKE YOUR ARTICLE AND SHOVE IT RIGHT UP YOUR ASS

    you and your evil twisted sick masters will ROT IN HELL
