According to Breitbart Chelsea Clinton has stepped in it. Big Time.

In a campaign appearance Saturday in Youngstown, Ohio Chelsea Clinton suggested that marijuana has the ability to kill.

During her speech, Clinton said, “We also have anecdotal now from Colorado, where some of the people who were taking marijuana for those purposes, the coroner believed after they died that there were drug interactions with other things they were taking.”

Breitbart mentions that the DEA begs to differ.

The DEA acknowledges that there has never been a reported death from an overdose of marijuana. According to the Washington Post, “On its own, marijuana is not known to have any fatal dosage level. The DEA itself acknowledges that nobody has ever died from marijuana alone.”

Here is a link to a DEA pdf on the subject. In case you were wondering. Breitbart also discusses legalization results in Colorado.

The state has also seen a drop in highway deaths as well as a drop in overdose death of harder illegal drugs such as heroin.

And that led me to look at a hardcore anti-Prohibition site on the subject of Chelsea’s comments. High Times.

During a recent appearance at Youngstown State University, Clinton—campaigning on behalf of her mother, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton—told a crowd of students that “anecdotally, we have lots of evidence” that cannabis is effective in treating epilepsy and stimulating the appetites of those undergoing chemotherapy treatment. But she then went on to say that there are still some public health concerns associated with pot consumption due to recent deaths in Colorado.

“We also have anecdotal evidence now from Colorado where some of the people who were taking marijuana for those purposes, the coroner believes, after they died, there was drug interactions with other things they were taking,” she said.

Although there is no documented evidence that marijuana has ever contributed to the death of a single human being in the thousands of years it has been used by civilizations across the globe, prohibitionists often dig deep into their sagging bags of propaganda to convince the average citizen that the effects of cannabis can be both devastating and deadly. But this is the first we have heard of marijuana potentially interacting with other drugs and causing people to suffer their untimely demise.

Well OK. High Times also reports that Chelsea “walked back” her statement. But that is not the most interesting thing. The original High Times article got over 100 comments. And the comment section was very supportive of Trump. I’d say in the 50% to 75% range of support.

This comment was typical of what I saw.

Last I checked her Mom has killed more people than Marijuana.

Now cannabis is not a very important issue. Except to the 10% of the population our government is making war on. And they are rabid on the issue. And for the most part those folks were planted on the Progressive Plantation. If Trump can get just half of those to vote for him such a shift would mean a landslide for him. Because those voters used to be very reliably Democrat.
