GOP KENTUCKY GOVERNOR WOULD NEVER ALLOW LEGAL MARIJUANA BECAUSE OF NONEXISTENT ‘OVERDOSES’
    #24703093 - 10/11/17 08:32 PM (10 days, 12 hours ago)

https://latest.com/2017/10/gop-kentucky-governor-would-never-allow-legal-marijuana-because-of-nonexistent-overdoses/


Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin rejected the idea of legalizing marijuana in the state because he’s worried about “overdoses.”

Bevin told WHAS radio host Terry Miniers Tuesday that he will never allow recreational marijuana to be legalized, WKYT reports.

Bevin cited Colorado as “an example of what’s going wrong, saying there are people overdosing on the drug there.”

While it’s certainly possible to have a “bad” high or feel “too high,” there is no evidence you can “overdose” on marijuana like you can overdose on prescription or other illegal drugs. Studies have found it would take 20,000 to 40,000 times the amount of THC in one joint to kill a human being.

Bevin reportedly cited marijuana edibles as cause for concern, which tend to contain higher amounts of THC and are more often taken in higher than recommended doses.

According to an analysis from FiveThirtyEight, consuming THC in higher doses can “cause anxiety, drowsiness and vomiting.”

WDRB’s Jason Riley pointed out on Twitter that the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime said this year there has been no evidence of any deaths directly stemming from marijuana consumption. The DEA also reported no overdose deaths from marijuana.

On the other hand, 2,200 people each year die from alcohol poisoning, according to the CDC.

Kentucky is in the midst of an opioid overdose epidemic. Legalizing marijuana has been shown to reduce opioid overdose deaths.

@flyonthewall,  unfortunately there is still a long way to go and your anti-republican rhetoric is founded in some truth.:grin:

I wonder if he holds stake in one of those opioid pharmaceutical companies :strokebeard:

Indicas are expected to be sedative. Sativas are said to be somewhat more energetic. Stomach issues are reported, rarely. :shrug: This is objectively true.

Rather than dealing with these issues, privately, people demand social services, requiring a figure like Bevin.

You can defeat him, by being charitable, and not making a scene, in public.
