Why on earth would anyone want to make cannabis illegal? I’ll tell you who – the tobacco industry
I have always been ambivalent when it comes to politics. This country has a two party system, and in my humble estimation, neither party is worth a dime. There is no one in politics that genuinely looks out for the “little guys” like me and my family, so I don’t support any of them! That said, when the issue of pot legalization came up, I started to get invested. This was an issue that struck close to home, and if this state could finally allow medical marijuana, a lot of my problems would be solved. First of all, let me state for the record that there is no moral or ethical problem with using cannabis. Cannabis is a naturally occurring plant, no different from trees or dandelions or the grass that grows in your yard. When an idiot politician says that cannabis is immoral, it sounds the same as if they said roses were immoral. A plant cannot be good or bad, it’s just a plant! To make matters all the more confusing, cannabis is one of the plants with amazing health benefits to it. Why on earth would anyone want to make cannabis illegal? I’ll tell you who – the tobacco industry. The only reason so many morons in this country think cannabis is “the devil’s lettuce” is because of an expensive and pervasive smear campaign orchestrated by Big Tobacco. Cannabis is superior to tobacco in every possible way, and so to conserve their own businesses, the tobacco farmers demonized cannabis. That misinformation campaign is still prevalent to this very today.
