EDUCATIONAL PLATFORM

Don’t buy the lies about "medical" marijuana.

  

1. Frequent THC use by adolescent brains, up to 25 years of age, significantly increases risk of suicide, mental health disorders, academic, and vocational struggles. See American Academy of Pediatrics and SAMHSA cannabis resources.


2. There are dramatic health risks associated with smoking/vaping anything. The only benefit to smoking a THC product is a rapid high. There are at least 2 "medical" marijuana states that do not allow smoking cannabis. 


3. CBD Oil is widely available as a nutraceutical in most states. Much of the medical benefits are found in these extracts without the impairment and side effects of THC. The recently approved seizure medication, Epidiolex is derived from cannabis and does not contain THC. 


4. The higher concentrations of THC in recent years are primarily driven by the desire for impairment not for medical benefits. The lowest THC concentrations possible should be paramount to any medical use.  These newer strains of cannabis are not well studied and older data is not relevant to these THC potent strains.

 

5. Medicine is not taxed in Missouri. The two driving forces for legal Cannabis are TAX REVENUE and the ECONOMIC growth. Marijuana, just as with alcohol and cigarettes,(the tax collects only 1/9th of the impact costs)  can NEVER be taxed enough to cover the financial damage caused by misuse and impairment associated with marijuana.

US ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR COLORADO - TRUTH ABOUT MARIJUANA

DENVER POST ARTICLE By BOB TROYER | Guest Commentary September 28, 2018

US ATTORNEY FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO, Bob Troyer

shared his recommendation to put the brakes on marijuana legalization based on FACT.  Missouri is the "Show Me State", perhaps we should allow Colorado to show us the FACTS.

Where has our breathless sprint into full-scale marijuana commercialization led Colorado?

Well, recent reports from the Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, from Denver Health, from Energy Associates, from the Colorado Department of Revenue and from the City of Denver should be enough to give everyone in this race pause.


  • Now Colorado's youth use marijuana at a rate 85 percent higher than the national average. 
  • Now marijuana-related traffic fatalities are up by 151 percent. 
  • Now 70 percent of 400 licensed pot shops surveyed recommend that pregnant women use marijuana to treat morning sickness. 
  • Now an indoor marijuana grow consumes 17 times more power per square foot than an average residence. 
  • Now each of the approximately one million adult marijuana plants grown by licensed growers in Colorado consumes over 2.2 liters of water - per day. 
  • Now Colorado has issued over 40 little-publicized recalls of retail marijuana laced with pesticides and mold.

Let's educate ourselves about the impacts of commercialization. We have an opportunity as citizens to have a say in Missouri's health, safety, economy, and environment. 

Unfettered commercialization is not inevitable. You have a say!

LACK OF PROMISED TAX REVENUE!

Less than 1% of Colorado's 2017 budget came from Marijuana taxes.  Where is the money?  With BIG MARIJUANA, not in tax revenue!  Read the Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Report, pp 124.

LACK OF LOCAL VOTE!

Over 69% of local jurisdictions in Colorado have voted not to allow marijuana sales in their community!  A constitutional amendment for Missouri would require all communities to allow this drug!  THE 2 AMENDMENTS CHANGE OUR CONSTITUTION!

The costly FRAUD of Marijuana Legalization

Marijuana legalization should be based on science, compassion, health, and human rights.  The right to live smoke free, without the normalization of another drug that causes addiction. 

Marijuana & Opioids

According to the CDC list of top 10 states for drug overdose deaths - 9 of 10 have medical marijuana laws.
