What happened to the cannabis edibles halloween poisonings outbreak?
The anti pot side will use and say anything to create fear around marijuana. Just before Halloween we had to watch and listen to factual seeming reports on how many children would be poisoned by pot in Colorado. It is amazing how low these conservative minded dinosaurs will stoop to get what they want. What is more amazing, is the fact that these people’s predictions get reported in the media. Yes there is a bigger game being played. Big pharma, the alcohol industry and the law enforcement industry all have a vested interest in having these stories played out to scare the public, but when a blatant scare story is all you have left you are in trouble.
We need to find the people who clearly just imagined edibles being given to little Sally at Halloween and then reported it as fact, and make them apologize for creating fear. Since when did your imagination count as fact? The media loves reporting fear. Our governments can get away with doing the bidding of their corporate sponsors when they have a public that is afraid. All these new fears is like the later stages of a doomed religious cult. THEY are coming, we had better arm ourselves to the teeth and prepare the poison.
We live in a world where marijuana is seen as a threat but bombing working class people in other countries is a good idea. Where a natural alternative to toxic medicine is a jailable offense but polluting the land gets rewarded with government grants and tax loop holes? Hello?? Join local community groups, get active because lord knows we need a change and the political parties of today cannot give us the change we need. They are business as usual and nothing more. They have nice shiny media marketing tactics but they do not benefit us. Organize locally and then connect with like-minded groups nationally. We don’t need more fear stories about cannabis, we need scientific research. We must take our rights and shed much needed light on the truth. United we are the country. Divided we are simply fearful consumers of rubbish.
