marijuana_legal(NaturalNews) If politicians and law enforcement are so eager to protect Americans from themselves, then they should break in and raid people’s homes, taking their boxes of sugar cookies, sugar cereals and sugar jars instead, because, frankly, sugar is way more dangerous and addictive than pot. The American majority now agrees with this simple fact and is beginning to see right through the facade claiming that marijuana is a “dangerous gateway drug.”

Poll shows that Americans now agree that sugar, alcohol and tobacco are more dangerous than pot
Americans also agree that tobacco and alcohol are more dangerous than pot. According to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, Americans think that tobacco is the most dangerous (49%), followed by alcohol (24%), sugar (15%) and marijuana (8%). Of the 1,000 surveyed, only (3%) were confused and chose all the above, while (1%) were not sure.

Since tobacco, alcohol and sugar lead the way as being the most dangerous legal substances, why does the federal government classify marijuana as a Schedule I drug, just as dangerous as LSD and heroin and more dangerous than cocaine and Xanax?

Why does the DEA arm their SWAT teams and break in on those who are in possession of a very safe and potentially beneficial plant? No one is breaking down doors in search of cigarettes, which are loaded with a slew of toxic additives NOT found in marijuana.

So why are authorities raiding vehicles, breaking into homes, destroying lives and imprisoning people all over something so harmless? Why is nearly half the prison population in America (48%) made up of nonviolent drug offenders, many of whom are put there for something as frivolous as marijuana possession?

If you believe pot should be illegal, then soda, tobacco, alcohol and fast food should also be illegal and be classified as dangerous as heroin and LSD
