This November, several states will vote on whether to legalize marijuana for recreational use, and the proponents of legalization have seized on a seemingly clever argument: marijuana is safer than alcohol. The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, an effort of the Marijuana Policy Project (...
Joan B BrowneThis deception of marijuana having redeeming value to be legalized is exceedingly *maddening*; and I pray for the innocents in harm's way of those who abuse this dangerous substance, especially for my family and my family's future generations! How many lives will be lost and/or maimed by accidents fueled by marijuana's haze; and how many of those lives will at last be *Enough!* to reverse marijuana's legalization?!!! Take admonition, lest you have blood on your hands from abuse of marijuana!

Beverly BrownNone of this surprises me. When you have so many potheads claiming they actually drive better and have better fine motor skills while high, it's pretty evident you're not dealing with people in touch with reality. What has been a bit surprising to me is the number of people who just buy into the bogus data without bothering to check it.
On a separate note, another interesting danger that's never mentioned is there have been more than 30 different studies that have been done that show your chance for developing schizophrenia increases after pot use. It's probably of no concern to most but if there's a history of it in your family, as there is in mine, it's very concerning. One more reason I can add to the list to not do drugs for my children.
As crime rates rise, Californians are realizing that they were sold a bill of goods on Proposition 47, the 2014 ballot measure that converted some felonies to misdemeanors. The campaign spin was all about reducing the punishment for drug possession. But proponents played down its dramatic softening…
Carla Ludovina-O'BrienI never agreed with these Props. It seems to be causing more issues then good. The constant re-offenders for the same thing over and over again before they ever make it to court for the first offense, people posting bail and getting out before the police officers paperwork is done, etc. I believe this is hard on the LEO, too.

E Christina Dabis-ApplebyI always vote NO on Propositions. They are written by laypeople *usually* and they are poorly worded in the sense of a legal document. So whoever writes the GET RID OF PROP 47 had better be someone who can expertly write the proposition in a manner that causes it to be bullet-proof. At least, have a professional, in the field of law, prepare the proposition.

Rick PahlerThis, as well as 57, is a hazard to LEOs, and the general public. Any contact with these Criminals is a danger, so our LEOs have to do it repeatedly? Ridiculous.
Nikki ClarkPeople have been doing this wayyyy before it was legal. And even more when they're drunk. People still drink and drive. You know whats just as dangerous and causes accidents? Being tired and falling asleep at the wheel. Higher rate than marijuana. But still, not as high of a rate as alcohol.... Which has been legal for eons.
Beverly BrownRead another thread with this link and, of course, the idiot potheads were out in force claiming they drive better on it. And that's why the accident rates have gone up, folks. Because potheads are too effing stupid to realize marijuana impairs you.

Tee BoneApparently only 3% not sky rocketing so much more study over time needso to be done...might decrease by 3 % next year? Also no proof consumption has increased because of laws and so absolutely true that people have been doing regardless
