YOU MIGHT remember there was an election a couple of months ago. That’s a long time in politics, but it’s still worth remembering. Because there were some important matters on the ballot here and there.

I have to say that this is a bunch of bull, The gateway drug is alcohol and cigarettes. you don't mention that those kids probably got into the booze cabinet first. I predict someday we will look back and wonder what all the fuss is about. Marijuana is safer than booze,cigs and prescription drugs. It was made illegal by corporate america. When that same corporate engine figures out how much money can be made from legal hemp the laws will change. so quit feeding the propaganda to the masses, because that is what your doing feeding a bunch of crap to the public. Colorado and Washington past these laws because they realize the truth is Marijuana is a safe and should be treated like alcohol. When doing so it will free up police to protect us from the violence of the world not from ourselves.

Outlaw painkillers. Children are killed every year because they accidentally take pain medicine prescribed to their parents.

Marijuana doesn't kill anybody. More lies and fear-mongering from the ignorant.

>> University of Colorado published a study of 164 teens who were being treated around Denver for substance abuse. Turns out 74 percent of them-seventy four percent-said they’d used somebody else’s medical marijuana<<
This is the type of nonsense which the Arkansas Demo-Gazette excels. Just nonsense without any back up or meaningful numbers.

Denver pop, 2010...........................600,158
Teen population................................22,000
no of teens in treatment group................164.

significance 0.007, total significance: 0.0002

Yea, let's design a social/legal policy around those infrequent occurrences.
