Anti-Medical Marijuana Group Suggests Marijuana Edibles Will Lead To Rape


The battle to legalize medical marijuana in Florida has been contentious. Both sides have raised millions of dollars. The ‘No on 2’ campaign, which opposes medical marijuana, has used some shady campaign tactics to try to scare voters into voting ‘no’ on Election Day. For instance, anti-medical marijuana supporters in Florida have suggested that marijuana leads to gay sex and AIDS. That’s despicable, even for politics.

The ‘No on 2’ campaign has rolled out a new tactic which is something right out of the Reefer Madness movie. The ‘No on 2’ campaign released an image suggesting that if medical marijuana is legalized, then marijuana cookies will become the new date rape drug of choice by predators. Below is the image:

I wish I was making this stuff up, but unfortunately, I’m not. Never mind that patients are suffering in Florida. Never mind that medical marijuana can help many of these people, and reduce their dependency on harmful pharmaceuticals. Instead of focusing on the facts and the science, the ‘No on 2’ campaign is relying on outright scare tactics in an attempt to trick voters into thinking that medical marijuana will lead to date rape. To say I’m disgusted is a huge understatement.

The new tactic, and every tactic for that matter, used by the ‘No on 2’ campaign is a disgrace, and highlights just how desperate they are. Almost half of the United States has already legalized medical marijuana, yet I have never heard of a ‘cookie date rape epidemic’ happening anywhere. This campaign strategy is wrong, offensive, and should not be tolerated. Vote yes on 2!

    perhaps some dr grinspoon could make the neuron deficient underdeveloped high treasonous traitors understand
    that they are not the only ones living on this land
    the federal government talks of a looming deficit in the trillions
    don’t you think its time to stop all the tax evading fraud, and save millions?
    the tax evaders i am speaking of get their tax breaks
    from illegally warring on the cannabis community through urinalysis for heavens sakes

    Ive heard it said that legalizing the cannabis communities constitutional rights could cause problems for those who depend on the monies gained through confiscation, STEALING

    who cares?

    Gosh you really don’t know very much about the history of cannabis prohibition, do you Mrs.Purple420? And you owe me an apology for calling me “sick minded”.

    The reason everything has to be about race is because cannabis prohibition (and the enforcement thereof) is ALL about race. Instead of jumping to conclusions and failing to note the OBVIOUS SARCASM of my post you would be better off googling the phrase “step on white people’s shadows”. It will open your eyes to a whole flood of historical information about exactly why cannabis is illegal and what sorts of things were said to manipulate and inflame public opinion.

    Like an evil Cookie Monster nailing big bird or big bird nailing the monster?
    What fantasy realm does this play out in anyway? I think we need more specifics if they expect us to swallow this load of dog jizz.
    Evil greedy basterds seem to be the only ones against this movement at least their making compleat fools of them selfs. :( poor big bird


    Mass hysteria!

  • It boils down to people not understanding so they fight what they don’t know… PS Cookie monster may have been eating these?

    Thank you I couldn’t have said it better. I am a disabled chronic pain patient, I have tried to pass out from smoking, eating, vapor, I guess I must have the tolerance of the iron man. The best I can get is a serious stare at the wall, or a light cat nap..
