Ask the Parents of Dead Children Who Gateway'd on Pot, Before You Ask Illinois to Vote on Legal Dope

"I think it well advised for us as members of the Illinois General Assembly, before we possibly take a vote on this issue, to find out what our voters think. As I said, it's been done in virtually every other state that has considered this questions."Image result for sen bill cunningham legal marijuana

 People who are addicted to marijuana are three times more likely to be addicted to heroin.
The legalization of marijuana increases availability of the drug and acceptability of its use. This is bad for public health and safety not only because marijuana use increases the risk of heroin use. Robert L. Du Pont in New York Times 2016

I think it well-advised to tally the number of drug related deaths in our neighborhood and maybe ask the grieving parents about marijuana's role in the death of a child

The butchers bill covering the last three years reveals that Illinois drug deaths are mostly white males, between the ages of 25-44.

The lies being told to convince voters to go along with wealthy, silk-suited marijuana advocates are as follows:

  • Marijuana Is Not A Harmful Drug; In Fact, It Is Much Safer Than Alcohol And Tobacco. Nonsense it is as dangerous as booze and smokes
  • .Weed Has Medical Value. Not really. 
  • It Can Help The Government Generate Additional Revenue Like the Lottery and Casino Gaming?
  • Legalization Would Help The Government Save Costs. How?
  • Prohibition Is Racist. What isn't?
  • Legalization Would Produce More Jobs. Where and for whom?
  • People Will Take This Drug, No Matter What.   Fewer will.
Like everything that politicians toss at us, recreational marijuana legalization will make a great deal of money for a very few people like the Pritzkers of the Marijuana Policy Project:

There is also the Coalition for Safer Illinois touting its two legislative champions Sen. Heather Steans ( D )Heather Steans and Rep. Kelly Cassidy ( D )Kelly Cassidy.  You can not see its staff or board of directors., but Coalition for a Safer Illinois was formed from Marijuana Policy Project.

These plutocrats and hangers-on will make many more millions.

Many more Illinois parents will bury children who had easier access to weed.
