“In strict medical terms marijuana is far safer than many foods we commonly consume. For example, eating 10 raw potatoes can result in a toxic response. By comparison, it is physically impossible to eat enough marijuana to induce death. Marijuana in its natural form is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man. By any measure of rational analysis marijuana can be safely used within the supervised routine of medical care.[ Francis L. Young – DEA Administrative Law Judge – 1988 ]”
…Now let that sink in….think about all of the lives wasted behind bars due to marijuana criminalization since 1988. It’s just a plant that grows on God’s green earth. Think about some people of color doing more time for possession of weed paraphernalia than some white coke dealers caught holding a key. Be that as it may, anyone in prison for possession of marijuana should be released immediately. Legalize now. ♠️
