Comments on: Most Mainers favor legalizing marijuana for recreational use, poll finds http://www.pressherald.com/2016/09/26/most-mainers-favor-legalizing-marijuana-poll-finds/ Tue, 29 Nov 2016 04:02:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.8.3 By: Factshonesty http://www.pressherald.com/2016/09/26/most-mainers-favor-legalizing-marijuana-poll-finds/comment-page-2/#comment-677032 Tue, 08 Nov 2016 23:25:00 +0000 http://www.pressherald.com/?p=1076547#comment-677032 The Dutch decriminalized weed in 1978….and the sky didn’t fall. We also know that legalization puts the neighborhood punk drug dealers out of business AND it actually reduces access to weed to those 18 and under.

We also know that the liquor lobby and the pharmaceutical lobby is the big money fighting to keep weed illegal. They know that people will drink less alcohol when weed is legal – that is a good thing as alcohol is addictive and usually part of all domestic violence cases. We also know that weed is an effective and none-addictive pain killer…..in many cases it will negate the need for opiate based pain killers and keeping opiate prescriptions to a minimum.will keep opiates off the streets.

Legalization is a no brainer….based on the facts and not the made up BS from people like Janet Mills who’s nothing but a very lazy state AG.

Only about one-third of Colorado voters (36%) would support a measure to repeal Amendment 64 if it were on this year’s ballot.
More than half of Colorado voters say the law has been good for the state (47%) or had no real impact (9%), and just 39% say it has been bad for the state.
Three out of five Colorado voters (61%) say Amendment 64 has had a positive impact on the economy, and only 19% say it has had a negative impact.
More than one out of four Colorado voters (28%) said they have a friend, family member, or acquaintance who has worked either directly for a marijuana business or for non-marijuana businesses that provides products or services to marijuana businesses.
About one out of four Colorado voters (24%) said they know of a friend, family member, or colleague who is consuming less alcohol because they are now consuming marijuana instead.

He remarked that even at low doses of marijuana abuse, these issues are prevalent to occur (Ghodse, 2002).

Although some theories have been presented which attempt nullify this research Ghodse (2002) stated “Although these and other explanations may be true, they do not preclude the existence of a cannabis-induced functional psychosis” (p. 131).
