Is Cannabis treated unfairly in the United States? Let’s check the stats, shall we?

Fair or unfair, to know cocaine is considered less dangerous than marijuana worries me for some reason. The laws of yesterday just don’t seem to fit anymore, and the statistics seem to support that assessment.

    I don’t know why everyone is focusing on facts that may, or may not be, correct regarding heroin or the amount of people in prison. Personally, I felt that the point of this – hence the title: Is Cannabis Treated Unfairly in the US? – is to just get the point across that a.) no one has died from overdosing on cannabis, b.) there are no scientific studies that conclusively show that marijuana is addictive, c.) with all of those other statistics, it shows how backwards the US government is by legalizing items like alcohol and tobacco when they account for hundreds of thousands of deaths a year (as well as addictions) while marijuana remains illegal.

    Basically, this article is saying similar things as the book: Reefer Madness but in diagrams.

    How would one go about convincing a visitor from another planet that yes, this actually IS the 21st century, when morons of the ilk that have bought into the pharmaceutical industry’s interminable campaign of misinformation, disinformation, distortion, misrepresentation and outright lies about “drugs” proliferate to the extent they do?

    Just reading the comments here it is appallingly apparent that nobody knows the history of cannabis in this country. Start by Googling Harry Anslinger. All of these things were LEGAL in this country until he came along.

    If you’re still treading on the tired old mill og government propaganda that “drugs” are “bad”, then you also are likely to believe that voting changes things. You’re a tool.

    People may think Cannabis is treated fairly in the Netherlands… However, it still is illegal overhere. There still is no official control on how it’s grown, nobody knows which pesticides are used. Growing in large quantities (> 5 plants) also is illegal but very profitable. Ever wondered what types do… illegal yet profitable businesses ? In large cities one can easily buy Cannabis for ridiculous high prices in coffeeshops. In my city (65.000 inhabitants) there are 90 places where I can buy alcohol, but finding a suitable place to sell cannabis seems to be a hell of a problem for the city. So… I still have to buy it from some guy with loads of bling bling hanging on his neck in his pimped VW on an abandoned parking place… It may be better as ending up in jail for the possession of a single joint, but we also still have a long road ahead of us.

    Ive had friends od on heroin ice cocaine and lsd. pot is really not that bad it slows ya down a lil so what. so does tylenol p.m. why isnt that illegal. maybe the government should check this site out so they can have some sort of a chance to fix this economy. if those stats can be proven by a web site then ya’ll know the feds can get it too. end the suffering legalize weed after all its only a plant.

    Y’know what I’d like to see? I’d like to see a debate about marijuana based on the scientific evidence. You can make theoretical arguments ’til you’re blue in the face, but if the research doesn’t back up your claim, you lose the argument. Wouldn’t that be great? “We say marijuana is a gateway drug and here (holding out a file folder) is the research we’ve found to prove it.” “We say marijuana is NOT a gateway drug and here is the evidence we’ve found to prove it. *aside* “Okay, back the truck up!” The stupid prohibitionists would lose in a heartbeat.

    But we’re not interested in research and evidence in America. If we were, there wouldn’t BE a war on drugs. We’re all about what we FEEL is true, nevermind the facts.
