Why is a police officer educating these kids on the medical effects of marijuana? He barely knows what he’s talking about. They should have gotten an expert in the cannabis field (I.e an actual doctor?) A lot of what he said is false
Very interesting I like the "Tell the Truth part," one of the things about "weed" being prohibited for so long is that all these "mysteries," and "fantasies," build up around weed. It becomes the "cure all be all," to some and the "straight path to Hell," for others. Myself I'm an intelligent person and for myself was not very difficult to get the truth from the Internet, news sources, medical reports from a variety of studies. Neither do the people who know these things and see the time for "weeds" legality.
The mention of THC percentage was such a good example of "mysteries and fantasies," Alcohol goes from about 5 percent in beer to 40% in Hard Liquor. THC levels are much lower and produce a stronger effect at much lower percentages than compared with Alcohol.
So maybe the biggest problem we face with the legalization of "weed" are the "fantasies and mysteries," from the crime of it (weed) being illegal for so long.
Great job on informing the public CBC, you chose a cop whose dumber than George Green. Good thing you didn't tell those kids any of the medicinal benefits and continue to demonize the plant as only a recreational drug along the lines of alcohol. What an absolute disgrace.
What is the total debt of the insolvent police pensions? How are insolvent corporations paying paychecks? Isn't this fraud in addition to the already existing failure of fiduciary duty? Are the insolvent corporations now selling drugs as a way out of insolvency? What's next? How were legal codes ever implemented by oath breaking criminals?
No. Being impaired by alcohol vs cannabis is not the same. No matter how many times you say it. And no, it's not "almost impossible" to overdose on cannabis. It is impossible. Please cite one example where someone has overdosed. Thanks. I'm beginning to miss the good old days when it was illegal.
@drink15 it is impossible to overdose you would need smoke like 1500 pounds of weed in 1 hour or sumthin close to that and if u ever smoked before u would know you'll be lucky to have even smoked 3 grams in 1 hour
You can overdose on water (it's called water poisoning) and in addition when marijuana is consumed in edible form overdoses are not uncommon (due to the delayed onset). You are absolutely right though that impairment due to alcohol tends to have a FAR worse effect on driving skills than marijuana, so that was quite disingenuous of this video to claim it's the same.
Who do you think people would rather listen to about weed:
-A professor who studies the psychoactive effects of THC and CBD, OR
-A member of the police who used to arrest people in possession of weed (ie. enforce the laws)
p0llenp0ny I was trying to be positive and also get first post with user name but I couldn’t agree with you more. All valid points and thanks for your reply. We do need proper education from the start and preferably by a person with full facts and knowledge.
J.D Indica Horrible job. You'd think they'd have an actual expert on the science of cannabis and its effects, but no. We get some cop who's job it is to enforce laws written by people who have no expertise in the matter whatsoever.
