We recently shared the latest report about marijuana legalization in Colorado from the Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, an anti-pot organization that receives federal funding.
The group cobbled together stats meant to portray Colorado's marijuana policies as a societal disaster that's wreaking more havoc with each passing day.
Most readers viewed this War on Drugs-era approach as highly dubious.
Take the respondent who reacted to information about the allegedly rising number of marijuana-related hospitalization with a tongue-in-cheek post that had other readers wondering if he was serious or celebrating his sense of humor.
Here's the exchange.

In all those hospitalizations, I wonder how many of them died from marijuana overdoses? I bet like 50%. Probably hundreds died from marijuana overdoses.
