There is nothing in this life more powerful than facts-and facts can only be ignored for so long. Here are 10 funny facts about marijuana:
Fact 1: Cigarettes Kill 443,000 people a year-in the United States Alone. Vending machines kill 10 people a year. That’s 443,010 more than cannabis has ever killed.
Fact 2: There are more medical marijuana dispensaries than Starbucks in Los Angeles and Denver. Because reefer is safer than coffee.
Fact 3: Over the last decade, the NYPD has spent 1 Million Hours Making 440,000 Marijuana Arrests. (what a waste of money)
Fact 4: The first law in America relating to cannabis was a 1619 law that actually required farmers to grow the hemp plant. Once harvested, hemp was useful for clothing, sails, and rope.
Fact 5: From 1850 to 1942, marijuana was listed in the United States Pharmacopoeia as a useful medicine for nausea, rheumatism, and labor pains and could be purchased from pharmacies and general stores.
Fact 6: The last four presidents, including Barack Obama, have all admitted to smoking cannabis.
Fact 7: About one-fourth of America’s population has tried marijuana at least once. The rest are lying.
Fact 8: Studies have proven that the high from cannabis is very comparable to that of a runners high.
Fact 9: Accident studies have found that drivers who test positive for marijuana often show no signs of impairment, and in some instances even may drive more safely.

Despite these facts, Marijuana remains federally illegal. BUT NOT FOR LONG…
