Lottery money will go to support the education system in Florida (remember that one?) and “Medical” marijuana will benefit everyone … except the people who end up in emergency rooms or morgues … except the kids who are much less likely to graduate from high school because they fell for society saying poisoning one’s brain is an intelligent thing to do … except property owners whose houses burned because their brains were too pithed to keep them safe … I could go on, but unless you are currently poisoning your brain in some form you probably understand what I am saying.
We have a multitude of proven medicines to solve the problems marijuana proponents claim to solve, including LEGALLY PRESCRIBED MARINOL, a relatively SAFE, natural component of marijuana that has been CLEARED BY THE FDA to treat anorexia, nausea and vomiting in patients who do not respond to traditional antiemetic medicines. That should say something to the reader … WE DO NOT NEED TO FALL FOR AMENDMENT 2 WHICH WILL OPEN THE DOOR TO AN ABSOLUTELY UNNECESSARY, RISKY POISON AND BUSINESS THAT CAPITALIZES ON PEOPLE’S EMOTIONS AND LACK OF UNDERSTANDING OF THE BIGGER PICTURE.
Amendment 2 is a horrible idea that sprang from people claiming to have the right to poison their own brains, backed by business people who saw an opportunity to make money, but it opens the door to so much more … NONE of which benefits our society … particularly the KIDS. Why in the world would we want to legitimize the use of one more chemical that kills our brain cells? Why would we set this irresponsible example for the kids?
We need every brain cell we can hang onto … Poisoning ourselves with marijuana is a brain-dead idea.
For the sake of our kids’ futures I hope you will help to put the brakes on this dangerous initiative by voting NO on AMENDMENT 2.
