"Revenue from the drug sales will go to education, healthcare, research and substance abuse prevention. "

Oh, revenue from substance abuse will go to....substance abuse prevention. Wow, that makes sense. It's like a charity. Or something.

Mr. Bensinger has lost 100% of his credibility when he states there are Marijuana overdoses. The overdose level of marijuana makes it impossible to OD as it would require the injestion of 1500 (ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED POUNDS) injested in 15 minutes to create an overdose. Mr Bensinger lives up to his first name with this lie. Do some research before you open that yap. Keep up the lies there Peter (lol) and you might find that you get called on them by more and more people by the day. Darren Rogers, Marijuana Party of Canada.

Pharmaceuticals are the biggest cause of overdoses in this country fact . How about the dam DEA doing their job and arresting the biggest drug dealing killers the doctors selling prescriptions to hard core oxycotin addicts.

That's not true whatsoever. Accidents are DOWN in those states and crime is DOWN too.

Any change is difficult. So many people benefit from MJ being illegal. It's about job security!
