WHY POT LEGALIZATION IS A BAD IDEA

( THE TRUTH )

1. According to the American Lung Association, there is 50-70% more cancer-causing material in      marijuana smoke than in cigarette smoke. In fact, marijuana smoke contains more than 400             chemicals. Marijuana is more harmful to the lungs than cigarettes.
2. Sixty percent of teens in drug treatment centers report marijuana as their #1 addiction.
3. Teens and young adults who regularly smoke pot are at risk of developing brain abnormalities.
4. Legalizing marijuana means teen pot usage will match, even exceed, teen alcohol usage.
5. Adolescents who smoke pot are 85 times more likely to use cocaine than their non–pot smoking          peers. And 60 percent of youngsters who use marijuana before they turn 15 later go on to use        cocaine.
6. Legalizing pot means it will be sold in your local grocery store, purchased by 21-year-olds who will then give it or sell it to teenagers.
7. Legalizing marijuana will dramatically increase “drugged driving” and fatal car accidents.
8. Legalizing pot will allow drug cartels to grow marijuana in large-scale operations on thousands of   acres of California farmland.
9. More violent crime will result as drug cartels invest heavily in marijuana fields and dramatically   increase their power.
10. Legalizing marijuana will make it impossible for employers to enforce drug-free workplace rules.

Not yet convinced that legalizing marijuana is a terrible idea? Watch Lei Green, 32, a single mother of seven, talk about how marijuana led her on a road to destruction.

The latest news is that "a sex toy" and "adult film" entrepreneur has given $100,000 to try and pass PROP 19 to legalize pot smoking in California. Meanwhile campaign committee reports are in and marijuana advocates in California and other states have contributed $1.4 million dollars so far since 2009.        Data From:  SaveCalifornia.com Website 7/27/10
