DEA Official: Marijuana Will Kill You

Get ready to die, stoners. Via DrugWarRant, DEA Miami Chief Mark R. Trouville has an ominous warning for you:

"This ain't your grandfather's or your father's marijuana," Trouville said. "This will hurt you. This will addict you. This will kill you." [The Ledger]

What can you really say about something like this? I mean he's not even saying it might kill you. He says you're gonna die.

Since marijuana's never killed anyone in history, this is a whopper of a lie even for a DEA official. Still, I'm more annoyed with the newspaper that reported it.

On and on, the discussion of marijuana in the press continues without regard for basic truths. It is only because the media can be counted on to pass along such absurd claims that our government officials continue to make them.

The Ledger accepts letters to the editor here.

WOW

The Police Will Kill You!

Here is how you die from smoking marijuana:

Police get a warrant for the wrong address, they bust into your house and when you stand up to see what's going on, they shoot you to death.

Hey wait a minute, that guy wasn't even smoking marijuana.

Marijuana saves lives, police take them.

You can die if your smoking

You can die if your smoking marijuana and then your high off your ass, drive a vehicle, and then get into a car crash and die. Marijuana does not help you get smarter, it's just a drug for people looking to get high and stupid. Police don't kill you just by accidentally going to the wrong place; they only shoot you to death if your going for a weapon and threaten their life. Cops have to watch their asses every day because people want to kill them to stop them from doing their job. Maybe the police should let people die? Let people kill each other and do nothing? Watch as your family is raped, killed, tortured, or something else really cruel? They are people like you and me; they have families they want to get home to alive. They are like the men and women in the military but on our home front helping keep things safe right in our own neighborhoods instead of across the seas. Yeah they may be corrupt, but not all of them are. There are some still fighting on our side trying to keep us safe. Yeah they make mistakes but were all human! If you have children one day or know someone who does and they go missing, who do you run to for help? Imagine if they didn't exist and you had to do everything yourself what would u do then? You wouldn't even know where to start.

*Facepalm*

Driving a vehicle while high is not what you're referring to. Driving a vehicle while drunk is what you're talking about. I don't think i've heard any honest person say non-jokingly "marijuana makes you smart" either. "A drug for people looking to get high and stupid." Right. Because people who want to experience the feeling of not being sober are intentionally looking to be 'stupid'. Pot smokers are people like you and me. They have families they want to get home to alive. Pot smokers don't smoke pot to be stupid. They smoke it because they enjoy it. It is harmless. It is relaxing. It is the same thing as going home after a long day at work and enjoying a beer or a glass of wine; except safer and you don't beat your wife and kids when you get drunk. So instead of beating your wife and kids, you get sent to jail for years for smoking a harmless plant. Great logic.

So Rodney King, and every

So Rodney King, and every black man arrested in the united states lied about police brutality

ill-informed, absurd claims,

ill-informed, absurd claims, off-topic... i smoke weed all the time and im still smarter than you, bro. whatchu know about calculus and physics, eh? lets both get high off our asses and find a nice windy road to race on. see who wins and who dies? iv taken turns harder high than you have in your life

You can die??

Are you feeling OK?

Huh?

To be blunt, YOU ARE STUPID. I can smoke an ounce of pot and drive wherever I want to, guarantee no one gets hurt unless they are at fault. You and I can sit down one day, I'll smoke my ounce and you can drink a case of beer or how many you can tolerate, or whatever you prefer to drink unless you're an uptight square who has a very shitty definition of fun in your life. Anyway, lets see who makes it home at the end of the night. Alcohol is far more deadly than pot. Back to my "having fun" comment, I am in no way, shape, or form saying that getting messed up is the only way to have fun, but it is one of the many. I also am not defending the comments about cops shooting the wrong person or whatever the above idiot said. Cops make mistakes sometimes, THEY ARE HUMAN, just like every one else. Back to the purpose of this writing, everyone has their own opinion about pot. Yes, some people are ignorant and get people killed while smoking pot, whether driving a car or walking down the street. Perfect example of all humans are different, some are smart, some are stupid. This is no different than Dick Cheney shooting his buddy while hunting or whatever happened. Look at Michael Phelps, pot smoker, yet still probably the greatest male swimmer of his time. Look at me for an example, I certainly don't smoke like I did when I was a teen. That being said, when I have nothing to do on the occasional weekend, I will sit at home and smoke with the girlfriend and enjoy some laughs from a comedy movie or whatever else I decide to entertain myself with. I am also currently studying for my associates degree and have a 4.0 GPA. So say I'm stupid, I really couldn't care less of an opinion from someone who has no earthly idea what they are talking about. 

why the hate

I just want to say that everything u say is an opinion, nothing u said is fact and how about you do your research no one has ever died from marijuana usage. If you are concerned about your family's safety then I suggest legalization to take money from the cartels and the real criminals of this world, and if you don't want to use Mary Jane then by all means don't no one is forcing you to use alcohol and it is fully regulated and legal why can't it be the same for something less harmful than what is already legal.(common sense people)

Legal Weed!

I believe that if our government wants to sell us ciggarettes which have killed numerous people, then why are they so against selling us somthing that has actually been scientifically proven to help people. It seems to me that they would prefer us dead over stoned and happy!

Yeah!

Yeah!

Heres the truth... Marijuana

Heres the truth... Marijuana is too easily grown in ones backyard. If you could grow a bunch of tobacco it'd be the same way but people that smoke cigarettes all day would have to grow a full field. 2-3 moderate sized plants could make enough bud to last a year if your not a complete stoner. Follow the money, the powers that be need to see a tax. They'd have it for awhile, until people just grew it themselves. 

Yeah the problem is that

Yeah the problem is that tabacco industries pay for anti weed and it is ironic how tobacco is far more toxic than pot. I mean its simple, tobacco doesn't make u see things clear and marijuana, you can grow it in your back yard. Who the hell's gonna grow tobacco, toast it, and smoke it? They target weed to their fullest because they can't get money off taxing it and they know its the best drug to consume. Makes you see the real side of the system. Potheads stand up!

Amen! Marijuana will save the

Amen! Marijuana will save the world!! Thank ya Lord!

Marijuana as a gateway drug...

for years people have argued that marijuana's main harm is that it is a gateway drug. Have any of these ignorant people taken the time to think about why marijuana is a gateway drug? I doubt it. Think about it. Marijuana is lumped into the illegal drug group with heroin, cocaine, meth, etc. So when kids go to their dealers to buy pot, they see these other drugs and begin to experiment. The day marijuana is de-criminalized, is the day that marijuana stops being a gateway drug and starts becoming the accepted healer that it is.

The real gateway drugs

The true gateway drugs are and always have been alcohol and tobacco. Even Mark Souder finally acknowledged this fact on Tucker Carlson earlier this year. He still tried hold on to the myth but he was done. He said alcohol and tobacco are the gateway to marijuana and it's the gateway to the rest. Obviously, you can't have two gateways. Alcohol and tobacco are the gateways to all illicit drugs, simple as that.

I am above the influence, the influence of drug war propaganda

Pussy

 is what you are :)

Um...

 "He said alcohol and tobacco are the gateway to marijuana and it's the gateway to the rest. Obviously, you can't have two gateways. Alcohol and tobacco are the gateways to all illicit drugs, simple as that."  I realize this was 5 years ago....but you said there cannot be two gateways....then you listed ALCOHOL and TOBACCO as "gateways"....  I hope that others who stumble onto this comment will understand that this guy is wrong.  The whole "gateway" theory is a stupid excuse to illegalize things.

awesome article

this article is awesome, you should be famous. hey look at our world today, crazy isnt it

Shit man i really never have

Shit man i really never have thought of that before kudos. Live happy and be stoned.

Legal MJ?

don't you think that if MJ was made legal that the government would modify it as they have cigarettes or beef for that matter? Seems to me that the gov likes to change nice natural products by GMOing or using additives for productivity.

On topic these guys are freaken stupid. Don't know about you folks but I know who is growing my grass and I know they aren't trying to kill me.

If this is true it's time to rewrite CSA definitions section

21 USC Sec. 802, Makes it very clear that you can't be addicted to cannabis.

I am above the influence, the influence of drug war propaganda

LEGAL POT

I wouldn't smoke marijuana that came from the government crop, even if they were paying ME to smoke it! What I hear is that is horrid tasting, and very weak stuff. I also know who grows my weed and they are not trying to kill me, either; best thing about it is, it is one hit shit!

But I'd rather feel even safer growing my own, (non-criminal) weed, Like I wrote elsewhere, marijuana should be as easily obtainable, as non-criminal to grow in your home garden, to sell or give away, and to ingest as are tomatoes and cucumbers.

Second

Yeah, then you know that no companies are making it toxic, like cigarettes, mixed with many toxic ingredients, or even mixed with the toxic mixed tobacco. You can trust the homegrown, but not the companies that the govrnment may choose.

Fox News Gets Reefer Madness Over So-Called Killer Marijuana

The story percolated up (down?) to Fox News. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcPF59CoGvs

Reading articles on this site always fills me with such hatred. DEA agents are such shitty people, it's unbelievable.

RIGHT........................

WHO EVER CAME UP WITH THIS SHIT HAS PROBABLY NEVER SMOKED A DAY IN THEIR LIVES!!! WHATEVER!

I GUESS I BETTER WRITE MY WILL OUT BC IT LOOKS LIKE I WON'T BE HERE AFTER TOMORROW!!!

Pros and Cons of Legalizing

There are many pros and some cons about legalizing marijuana.
PROS:
- Most marijuana based crimes are because of possession, selling, growing, or usage. All of which directly relate to marijuana being illegal. Considering the average cost to house a prisoner in jail is 9,000-over 75,000 dollars a year (from our taxes) Legalizing marijuana would be a great economic move.

- The other couple percent of marijuana related crimes indirectly come from dealers and buyers fighting, which sometimes leads to murder.

- The only legit marijuana related crimes (meaning crimes that you should be arrested for) are DUI's. Keep in mind that compared to all reported DUI arrest, less than 1% deal with people high on marijuana and 85% are because of alcohol, which is legal and was made legal after it had once been banned.

- The slim remaining crimes involving marijuana occur when a cop catches someone using marijuana and out of fear of being arrested, the person fights or runs away, leading to assault charges or charges for running from the cop.

All of the above marijuana crimes, except DUI's would be eliminated if marijuana was legalized.

Another problem with marijuana being illegal is many good doctors, athletes, and students lose any hopes of being successful when they are drug tested. The doctor that your hospital fired last year because he smoked a joint a couple years ago (gas-mass spectrometer test) could have made a medical breakthrough but gave up medicine because no hospital would hire him.
Ive personally seen and heard of many talented students and athletes, after being busted for marijuana use by their parents, school, or the police, go downhill and destroy any chances of making a difference in the world.
Also, from my marijuana use experience, believe that marijuana can literally make you smarter. Now im talking about when you are actually high, the common long term affects of marijuana such as short term memory loss are very real. But on multiple ocasions, when I was high, I thought about some science that I never studied in detail, and came up with theories.
or instance, one day I was thinking about how sound waves work and wrote down notes. At first I though I made a breakthroughand was going to be famous but I found most of my findings to have already been discovered and published in textbooks. Then it hit me, I just taught myself the advanced physics of sound waves without any prior knowledge and without opening a book. Now Im a decent student (high 80's-mid90's) but nothing like the scientist who first discovered this stuff, so what if a genius were to use marijuana, if it were to produce the same effects on him or her, the possibilities are endless. Don't forget, these scientist may have used marijuana to aid them and never wanted to admit it.
A very common argument against legalized marijuana is that is kills brain cells, damages lungs, and causes some neurological problems. These have all been scientifically proven to be true. However, if marijuana caused one person in a study to slip into a coma, marijuana would be proven to induce comas, even if there is only a 1 in a trillion chance of it happening.
I agree marijuana is going to shorten your life span and cause problems, but what if a doctor were to use marijuana and discover a cure for cancer? Or discover something that brings us a step closer to finding a cure? The fact is nothing comes easy and great accomplishments sometimes come with great losses.
Another fact, no one has ever been reported dead due to a marijuana overdose. The reason for this is you would simply pass out before you smoked enough marijuana to kill you. However, THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannibol) the chemical most associated with being high, can kill you in relatively low doses if it is ingected in its pure form. But understand that the most potent strains of marijuana contain around 25% THC, but most of it is converted into other chemicals when lit, or exhaled out. Another large amount simply stays in your bloodstream and gets filtered out by your liver and kidneys. IF you could absorb all the THC in the marijuana you burn, less than .1g of low grade stuff would get you high.

A theory I have on this topic is, if marijuana were legalized, less people would use hard drugs. I believe this because many people result to harder drugs, cocaine to be more specific, because it is easer, faster, and more concealable to use than marijuana. If marijuana was legal I think a lot of people would not bother wasting money on harder drugs because of the legality and lower cost of marijuana.

Legalized marijuana would also lead to strains that produce the same effect and the same taste but with less toxins because large organizatons and future "marijuana farms" would be able to study it and experiment more openly.

CONS

Many people feel that legalizing marijuana will decrease crime rate, violence, and lower taxes (saving money from less prisoners) which I believe is correct (I have no way of proving it).

The cons are less numerous and most deal indirectly with marijuana.

The main reason marijuana is not legal in the US is because most 1st world countries don't have it fully legalized. Legalizing marijuana in the US would cause mass amounts of attention.

Also, as someone mentioned earlier in the post, most countries hate the US for their radical approach to the war on drugs, so making a drug legal would definitely not help our reputation.

Another reason is if marijuana was made legal it may increase violent crime rate because people would no longer be hiding in the woods or someones house while high. This could easily be fixed by placing usage laws, much like those of alcohol only a little bit stronger making it legal to use, buy, and cultivate marijuana on private property or places that have some kind of license (like that needed to buy and sell alcohol and tobacco).

Another reason marijuana is not legal is because it hasn't been proven to do any of the things I was talking about. Although I swear on my life that I have experienced all the for mentioned effects as well as all my friends, that isn't enough to convince the man.

My prediction is that marijuana will be decriminalized by 2060. Some states allow it for medical purposes and that is the first step. Soon all states will legalize it for medical purposes and that will increase the number of people that use marijuana, thus making more people see the truth. Eventually, it will be legal for people over a certain age too use in private places, then in public places, then stores will start opening and kids will be paying homeless people to buy them bags of weed. (another pro- it would be a charity to homeless people everywhere...jk but think about it)

Hopefully this helped and remember (this is going to sound like its from a Disney movie....fuck it probably is) Alone we can't make a difference, but together our voice can be heard. Remember that we live in a government where THE PEOPLE GOVERN THEMSELVES!!!!

---by the way for her own sake, don't vote for HillaryJERTA, every president we have had was a white male prodestant the only exception was JFK and he was shot by a fricken magic bullet. So if a different sect of Christianity is enough to kill a president, I would NOT throw a women into the mix. by the way I'm not a racist or sexist, a black person or women could be the best president we ever had....until a magic bullet blows up their face, and then some considering the improvements in modern weponary.---but that is for a different post

You are all crack heads yourselves!!!

You are all crackheads!!! Who cares what they say!?! People shouldn't do drugs anyway! Marajauna is addicting and people who use it will eventually die from some kind of health problem! Drugs are never good and only used for some medical problems! Your all trying to say what this guy said is wrong or messed up or BS, but maybe he had a personnal experiance, where maybe a family member of his was killed by a drug addict! how do any of ya'll know?!?! this is one a small pieve of a article! get facts striaght! drugs are bad for everyone!!!

You're an idiot.

The simple fact that you can't even spell marijuana correctly proves your complete ignorance of the subject.

"drugs are bad for everyone!!!" This statement illustrates beliefs founded on irrational fears and ignorance rather than scientific evidence and statistical fact.

Lumping all drugs into one category of "bad" fails to portray the actual drug use and necessity in today's society.

What do you take when you have a headache? Drugs.

What's in that cup of coffee you drink every morning? Drugs.

What do doctors sedate patients with prior to surgery? Drugs.

What are women given to ease the pain of childbirth? Drugs.

How do you treat depression, anxiety, ADHD, post-traumatic stress disorder, insomnia, schizophrenia, or any other number of psycholigical/physiological disorders? DRUGS.

To say "drugs are bad" demonstrates the stupidity that the drug-war propaganda has drilled into a majority of America's populace.

ALMOST EVERY drug has some medicinal purpose. Morphine (an opiate similar to heroin) is used by medics on the battlefield to treat wounded soldiers. MDMA has proven effective in reconciliation between couples as well as PTSD.
Some drugs even have religious correlation, namely psychedelic mushrooms, LSD, Salvia Divinorum, and other hallucinogens/enthogens.

Now. Recreational use. Yes, these illicit drugs have medicinal use, but everyone knows that the most common drug use is recreational. People want to have fun for a little while. The only difference between smoking marijuana, snorting coke, eating shrooms, dropping acid, crunching X, shooting up heroin, etc and drinking alcohol is that alcohol is legal, whereas those other drugs are not.

The reason alcohol is used so often in drug comparison is because alcohol is an addictive health degenerative toxin with a high potential for abuse which impairs your motor skills as well as your abilities to make rational decisions(Basically, alcohol is THE definition of a hard drug). Yet society still functions by legally regulating it. Why should legalizing any other drug be different? The truth is it won't. People are just so terrified of things they don't understand. It's always been like that if you look back on history.

Here's my main point: When considering the concept of drug legalization, no one should EVER bring up the fact that drugs are harmful. IT DOESN'T MATTER. What matters is personal responsibility and freedom. The two go hand in hand; You can't have one without the other. America is supposed to be the Land of the Free, right? Then why can't I choose for myself what kind of lifestyle I want? Why can't I choose what to put in my body? Why can't I responsibly use drugs in the privacy of my own home, or in a safely controlled environment? The answer is simple.

America is not free.

America is supposed to be free?

What about the people who DON'T WANT TO SMELL LIKE ASS?

This coming from someone who, for 18 years, delt with smoke being breathed down their throat.

Coming from someone who suffered bronchitis, sore throats from coughing, who was constantly made fun of, asked if they smoked cigarettes.

Then, when their parents moved onto pot, was constantly called into the office, lost a great deal of friends. Was denied honor roll not because they tested positive for THC, but because their clothes constantly smelled like it. Because my school didn't want their record to be tarnished.

America is the land of the free?

Let's free it of people like YOU who push their lifestyles on everyone else.

Asshole.

Maybe you should wear a turban and scream "Allah" all the time. See how free you are then.

In response to the Anonymous person who posted this, I just have to say...

I'm sorry your clothes smelled like ass, I'm sorry you've had bronchitis (as have i) and I'm sorry you weren't on the honor roll... We can't always get what we want. There are people who want Marijuana, we can't get it legally. That should make you happy. On the flipside, why didn't you shower, put your clothes through the wash or call CPS if your parents were that much of a burden on your life?
Oh, and your Middle Eastern comments show your ignorance. People have different points of view. Life is all a matter of personal perception. People are all born with the right to live their lives as they see fit so long as it does not impugn on the lifestyles of others.
Which means, a Drug Addict can use drugs because it is a victimless crime that does not harm other individuals. If they harm other individuals then it's no longer a victimless crime.
Anyone should be able to practice their religion without being harassed.
--"Maybe you should wear a turban and scream "Allah" all the time. See how free you are then."--
This is a typical Douchebag American comment that makes all other Nations and Religions hate us. America should be free of Religious persecution. Not all Muslims are Terrorists, just like not all Pot-Smokers are crazy drug addicts; Not everyone who drinks beer is an alcoholic.

I'm sorry your life was shit, but hopefully you're away from your evil Marijuana/Tobacco cigarette addicted parents and onto a healthy life with no drugs whatsoever. Otherwise you're a hypocrite.
Drugs aren't inherently bad, abusing them is. Everything in moderation.

Allah means God you dumbass.

Allah means God you dumbass. Weed shouldnt even be classified as a drug. Its the only 'drug' that you use directly, pick it and smoke it. No other chemicals or other crap in it just the plant. Have you ever read about weed? Its harmless

Drugs are NOT victimless!!

"a Drug Addict can use drugs because it is a victimless crime"

 

I disagree with this statement.  In Economic terms, there are no free lunches!  Drugs have a higher inelastic demand.  This means as the price increases, demand does not diminish as much.  This is why people still pay over $6 for cigarettes when they promised to quit when the price topped $3.  As a result many families go without basic necessities.  Many children go without food/milk because of the drug addictions of their parents.  There is also the example of meth abuse.  It destroys everyone around it.  We are seeing dramatic increases in copper theft directly related to meth addiction.  There is something rather decadent about the above statement. However, it is very naive to say that drugs are victimless.  

You're putting weed and meth

You're putting weed and meth in the same boat though....the two are basically polar opposites! The only similarity is that the government put them in the same category and brainwashed America to think that they are equally bad.  Trust me, potheads aren't the drug-obsessed loonies that meth-heads are.

Furthermore, you can be sure that any marijuana-loving household would never have a food shortage...duh.

Wow that was one hell of an

Wow that was one hell of an informational rant and i completely agree. Also thank you for your service in the armed forces i hope if you ever do unfortunately get diagnosed with PTSD then you can treat it however you see fit.

we arent talking about

we arent talking about what most consider "drugs." when i think of "drugs" i imagine crack, cocaine, heroin, acid, etc. and as for calling us crack heads? fuck you. everybody ive ever met on weed is truely one of the most peaceful people on this planet. crack heads, will straight fucking steal your purse, then try and help "find" it. just for their next hit. majority of pot heads are your average working class heros you cant live in society without. we normally dont steal to buy pot, we work for it. i bet i can score higher than you on a major test totally fucked up on some sour diesel. i smoke pot and i get damn good grades in school, i got recommended to SKIP chemistry and move ahead to PHYSICS in my junior year. physics in my school is primerily a senior and smart fucking junior class. im taking harder classes in high school than a lot of the shit people take in college. so if you dare think we're all just fucked up people on "drugs" think about this. i just watched a documentary called "super high me" this guy thats been smoking pot for 17 years stopped for a month and took a shit load of tests every week (standard tests to see if he was healthy) at the end of the 30 days his doctor told him that after 17 years of smoking pot his physical health wasnt even altered. this man is also a VERY accomplished comedian and probably makes more in a year than you make in 10. after that 30 days sober he started smoking weed from the moment he woke up to the moment he went to sleep and his emotional struggles he expirianced during sobriety (manic depression) disappeared. he was still healthy physically and emotionally, his jokes also sucked when he was sober cuz he couldnt tell them in his tommy chong-like style. so it was affecting his career a bit too. you should really take into consideration what others have to say and what they believe before you start acting like an ignorant bitch about something you dont understand besides your governments bullshit.

Yeah!

Yeah!

Yeah!

Yeah!

lol!!! go smoke a joint and

lol!!! go smoke a joint and relax!

experiance

Can you spell crack head WTF............

well...

Im pretty sure that you're a fucking idiot. Where do you get your information?

one reason they won't legalize it

Is because all those DEA mother fuckers will be out of work I mean think about it 85% of all there bust is marijuana. When they stop making bust they stopped getting paid.

Marijuana related death

I had a close friend who came home to his best friend dead in his bedroom, the only drug found in his system was marijuana...

really?

And what was the cause of death on the coroner's report? If I shot myself, the only drug found in my system would be marijuana. That doesn't mean marijuana killed me!

An anonymous comment claiming an anecdotal event that has never been documented that I've seen... wow, compelling stuff.
