  • We would take away, if not slow down, the huge black market profits the drug kingpins are making. We would be able to ease some poor person's suffering. We could seriously reduce the transmission of HIV and Hepatitis. We could control the quality and dosages so fewer people would get sick through contamination and overdose.

    But that's just one former "pot heads" opinion.. another part of my opinion is, if you haven't smoked it, you have no grounds to pass judgement.. and seriously, what do you people care anyways? it doesn't effect you in any, way, shape or form... i find it appalling that anyone who hasn't experienced something can callously claim to have any knowledge of it. I strongly recommend for those people to step down from their soap boxes, jump off your high horses and live a little, and find something better to do with your time.

  • Q. Has Anyone Ever Died From Smoking Marijuana?
    A. No; not one single case, not ever. THC is one of the few chemicals for which there is no known toxic amount [10]. The federal agency NIDA says that autopsies reveal that 75 people per year are high on marijuana when they die: this does not mean that marijuana caused or was even a factor in their deaths. The chart below compares the number of deaths attributable to selected substances in a typical year:

    Tobacco 340,000 - 395,000
    Alcohol (excluding crime/accidents) > 125,000
    Drug Overdose (prescription) 24,000 - 27,000
    Drug Overdose (illegal) 3,800 - 5,200
    Marijuana 0
