*Hint* It’s substantially lower than the death toll caused by prescription drugs and alcohol.

Every year, thousands of people die from overdosing on legal and illicit drugs. According to CDC figures, in the last year, 25,760 people died from overdosing on pharmaceutical drugs (including painkillers and tranquilizers like Valium), and 17,465 died from overdosing on illicit drugs, such as heroin and cocaine.

Yes, there’s a problem, but it’s not the one you’re thinking of.

While it’s considered ‘normal’ for an individual to be on a variety of medications to tame their health conditions, it’s still incredibly taboo for one to remedy their illness(es) with medical marijuana. 

Perhaps that’s because the FDA still classifies it as a “drug with no medicinal purpose,” though countless anecdotes have proven otherwise.

And get this: in the last year, there have been absolutely zero deaths from overdosing onmarijuana. 

In fact, that statistic was zero the year before, as well!

The same can’t be said for pharmaceutical drugs. According to figures released by the CDC earlier this month, opioid overdose levels rose a shocking 14% between 2013 and 2014.

“More persons died from drug overdoses in the United States in 2014 than during any previous year on record,” the CDC reported.

    the government stance on this is not about whether marijuana kills or not.

    They are against it. completely.
    It’s their nightmare.
    it messes up the mind programming and renders tv completely useless.

    and what’s worse is that, it let’s people calm themselves to the point where they can tell apart the vibration that’s all around and even inside them.. which leads to, connecting themselves to the source consciousness and remember who they really are..

    scaremongering movies about astral like the conjuring etc will look funny and an absolute silly way
    to keep people away from the stuff the elite are afraid of.. even feeling it ones.
    And weed not only helps. It’s been the way for thousands of years..period.
    and watching their movies just shouts out loud they are scared and they seriously are losing it.
    I really feel sorry for these guys, 1000s of years perfecting their ways to make the perfectly controlled slave society and finally getting everything out of control by their own surveillance plan called the internet got out of their hands..?
    if I were an elite I’d seriously be weeping and shouting out of frustration now.

    soon someone’s gonna have a senior moment and they are gonna fart and cough and spit nuclear bombs.. watch out people..lol
    happy New year everyone.
    and smoke as much as you can.
