Another statistic on the failed drug war,from a drug that has killed no-one in over the 500 years of known use....Except this guy!!!!Breaking the law. . . . . check (selling drugs)
Run from the police. . . . . check (ran 12 blocks and hid in a housing project)
Ignored police when they tell you to show them your hands. . . . . check (making sudden movements with something in your hand)
And all of this after there is a report of a dealer with a gun in a crap hole of a neighborhood where shootings are commonplace.
This "kid" had more then enough chance to say "crap they got me, let me go through the system. I'll be out before the ink dries"
Nope he played the game and lost Oh Well one less POS on the streets to poison the next generation.
You're telling me that nobody has gotten cancer from smoking marijuana? The more recent studies that I have seen suggest that a lot of the carcinogenic things found in tobacco smoke are also found in marijuana smoke.Another statistic on the failed drug war,from a drug that has killed no-one in over the 500 years of known use....Except this guy!!!!
Yeah, and in the history of time no firearm ever killed anyone either. It what the people who use it do that matters. I guess you're not counting the drug cartel, street gang, accidents from impaired driving or other activities, suicides, etc in your statisics but it seems a little disingenuinous to argue there has never been a single death (except this one) associated with marijuana. /rantAnother statistic on the failed drug war,from a drug that has killed no-one in over the 500 years of known use....Except this guy!!!!
I know lol. My main point was that I think the it "doesnt cause deaths" was originally talking about overdose. I also agree with what your were saying but then I just got off on a tangent lol. Just think if it were legal then this death would of never happened.USMC, I'm not arguing whether it should be legal or not. I personally don't have a strong preference either way. The never caused a death in 500 years just rubbed me the wrong way. I'm over it, lol.
I mostly agree with you lol. Cartels still sell other drugs like cocaine and others.You dont see Mexicans on the street peddling cheap beer do ya,would be the same if marijuana was legal.No money going to cartels and alot of Americans would have much needed jobs! If anything its the law itself thats killing more people than marijuana ever did or will...
