Reader: No proof that pot caused two deaths but plenty that booze has killed thousands
Our post featuring anti-pot group Smart Colorado branding the recent 4/20 celebration "shocking" attracted comments by the bushel. The following reader focuses on the organization's argument that marijuana may have led to the accidental death of Levy Thamba and the murder of Kristine Kirk.
Rudy Gutierrez writes:
They're stupid they try and argue a point where there have been two deaths but no proof that MJ caused it but thousands of drunk drivers and accidents and people can still drink at a bar. I call BS. If people can drink in bars and ball games etc. then we should be able to smoke, too.
