Marijuana is much less dangerous and alcohol and, is impossible to overdose on and or die while smoking marijuana. In order to overdose or die while smoking marijuana you would have to smoke approximately three tons of weed in about fifteen minutes which, is physically impossible for anything to do. It is much easier to overdose on coffee or die of alcohol poisoning. In order to overdose on coffee you would need to consume about seventy cups of coffee in twenty minutes which is possible for a human to do. Also there has never been a reported death from smoking marijuana and has medicinal uses. Not only does it help people with epilepsy, and chronic illnesses it also helps people who suffer from chronic pain, anxiety, depression, stress and veterans who suffer from PTSD. In countries and states where marijuana has been legalizes violence has decreased and has increased the states economic activity. This economic churn has brought in so much tax money that the state of Colorado has to much money and is considering giving it back to the residents of Colorado. Also in states with legalized marijuana the education systems have improved due to the massive budget surplus. If this was legalized in Texas we could follow other states like Colorado and require at least 25% of the taxes be allocated to schools. Marijuana is not a bad thing and should not be seen as something sent here by the Devil himself, the majority of the United States Population agrees with the legalization of marijuana you as the representative of the people can reverse all of this and carve a path a for a better Texas. You can make Texas a model for other states to follow and can make us the state that once again has incredible economic growth. Thank you for your time.
