    MYTH #1 FACTS:
    According to a DEA report 80% of states have legalized cannabis in some form.
    A pound of salt, if consumed, is indeed lethal.
    Not a single person has ever died from cannabis use.
    Cigarettes kill half million people each year.
    CDC claims-5.5 million YPLL(years per life lost) each year in the US.
    Alcohol is the cause of over 50,000 cases of alcohol poisoning every year, of which one a week dies.
    Proferror David Nutt was fired for speaking out about the reality of alcohol and how dangerous it truly is.
    Prescription Drugs cause over 100,000 deaths a year.
    CDC calls prescription drugs the fasting growing cause of death in the US, and is currently the leading cause of death.
    There are 290 deaths a day due to prescription drugs; that’s one every 20 min and they are given kids and adults alike.
    According to KVTX 19, In 2010 doctors prescribed enough painkillers to give a 45mg percocet and 24 5mg vicodins to every person in the United States.
    According to the British Medical Journal, every 1 dollar that pharmaceutical companies spend on research and development, they spend 19 dollars on promotion and marketing of their drugs.


    MYTH #2 FACTS:
    There is a major difference between a psychological addiction(desire/obsession) and chemical addiction(withdrawal).
    Only 9% of users who regularly use cannabis even develop a psychological addiction.
    One can become addicted to anything, but that does not make everything addictive, especially not enough to be added to the Controlled Substance Listing.
    Recent studies show minor withdrawal symptoms associated with long-term, everyday cannabis consumers suggesting a very small percentage of chronic users do develop a chemical, albeit very minor, addiction.
    These symptoms were relatively mild, elevated pulse, irritability and headaches, when compared to even the lowest level opiate (Schedule II). It is important to understand that these were the only negative withdrawal symptoms from a lifetime of cannabis use. One could hardly consider this withdrawal, being less intrusive than a caffeine addiction. An everyday, long-term opiate user would have an extreme and possibly deadly withdrawal.
    Cannabis has the lowest recorded addiction of all the drugs in any Schedule.
    Studies have shown that a person can actually have withdrawals after abstaining from a habit of excessively eating of junk food.

    MYTH #3 FACTS:
    This is an extension of the classic “Reefer Madness” – Pot makes you crazy.
    Scientists have long known that schizophrenia is inherited genetically.
    Inheriting genes from both parents is a legacy of issues and benefits that none can avoid.
    It is genetically impossible for marijuana use to cause schizophrenia in a person that did not already have the inherit genes necessary to trigger the ailment.
    The illness naturally occurs in a small percentage of the general population with a predisposition for the disease. It has a higher rate of 10 percent occurrence in those who have a first-degree family member with the ailment, such as a parent, brother or sister. The risk is highest for an identical twin of a person with schizophrenia. He or she has a 40 to 65 percent chance of developing the disorder.
    “While cannabis may have an effect on the age of onset of schizophrenia it is unlikely to be the cause of illness,” said the researchers, who were led by Ashley C. Proal from Harvard Medical School.
    This illness can be triggered by a serious car accident but that does not mean that driving should be made illegal.
    There is an undeniable correlation between those who use cannabis and those with schizophrenia, however, a Harvard Medical study as well as many others, show that those with the gene for schizophrenia have a genetic predisposition for drug use. Seeing as how marijuana is the most common drug of choice and roughly 60% of the U.S. has smoked marijuana at some point in their lives, it becomes an easy statistic to show that the vast majority of those with schizophrenia are also marijuana smokers. One could show a direct correlation between marijuana smokers and just about anything due to the rising percentage of those who have smoked marijuana in this country. Using that same logic, one could show a direct correlation between cannabis use and the flu. There would no doubt be a large percentage of people who had previously gotten the flu, and had also smoked marijuana, simply due to the prevalence of marijuana use today. This however, does not mean that marijuana use causes the flu. This is one way that polls and statistics can be quite misleading.


    MYTH #4 FACTS:
    “We have been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years in the United States… marijuana was a legitimate medication.” Dr. Sanjay Gupta
    After Nixon declared marijuana enemy number one in the early 1970’s there was a massive and discreet effort to erase all evidence of its value. In just a few decades, the U.S. government was able to wipe thousands of years of anecdotal as well as solid scientific evidence of the efficacy of cannabis in treating a wide range of ailments and diseases from our collective medical knowledge.
    “There’s actual documentation that shows the United States Government under Nixon was actively writing to universities saying ‘pull your information of cannabis, hemp and marijuana out of your libraries, literally purge it.” Todd McCormick – Researcher, Editor of “The Emperor Wears No Cloths”
    Both celery and parley have the ability to effectively combat breast cancer, so why is not being researched?

    #5 FACTS:

    Marijuana is the most commonly used drug in the United States. The most recent poll showed that 108 million people in America have tried marijuana. With that fact in mind, consider for a moment how easy it would be to show a correlation between any common practice and marijuana use.
    79% of regular marijuana users do not use any other illicit drug.
    Nearly 85% of everybody in this country that uses any form of illicit substance whatsoever, uses solely marijuana.
    “Hell’s Angels motorcycle gang members are probably 104 times more likely (comparing to an earlier reference) to have ridden a bicycle as a kid than those who don’t become Hell’s Angels, but that doesn’t mean that riding a two-wheeler is a “gateway” to joining a motorcycle gang. It simply means that most people ride bikes and the kind of people who don’t are highly unlikely to ever ride a motorcycle.” -Time Magazine
    “There are about 16.1 million monthly users of marijuana and only 287,000 monthly users of heroin. Not only do most people who try marijuana never move on to heroin, the vast majority of them don’t even continue smoking marijuana.
    Marijuana use among adolescents appears to be a symptom of problem behavior, not a cause.
