Let’s Keep The Great Lake State Healthy and Productive
“We have this high-potency ‘crack weed’ everywhere now. I have been completely robbed of my son’s teenage years because of this drug.”
“The commercialization of marijuana will only harm people and communities. We just have to look at the history of big tobacco that this won’t end well.”
“Young guys my age do not need one more way to get high. It’s not going to help us in our education or our careers.”
Preventing Big Tobacco 2.0
The marijuana industry is likely to be the Big Tobacco of our time.
Let’s prevent another industry from profiting off of addiction.
Putting Public Health First
We stand with every major medical association when we say marijuana can be harmful.
Read about the latest science and read why legalization is not working in U.S. states.
Advocating for Legal Reform
Just because legalization is a bad idea, doesn’t mean we need to incarcerate
users or give out criminal records. There is a middle ground between the extremes.
What Are the Costs
THE PROFITEERS IN THE MARIJUANA INDUSTRY PROMISE RICHES FOR STATES THAT LEGALIZE MARIJUANA BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE
– the only ones getting rich are the marijuana industry. State governments and society lose money whenever pot is legalized. Whether it is costs to employers, increases to social service costs, the rise in homelessness or the regulatory system created to manage the marijuana program, the marijuana industry doesn’t pay these costs. Instead, we all pay: citizens, employers, and state government. Thus, any revenue is outweighed up by the societal costs attributed to legalization. This is just like tobacco and alcohol, where costs far outweigh revenues.
