Federal government classifies marijuana as “having no medical use” and similar to heroin

If you haven’t read this article yet, I highly recommend it for a good laugh.  

Regardless or not of marijuana’s medical uses and the opinions that surround this controversial claim, the government placing it on the same level as heroin is factually ridiculous.  

Here are some facts that make the drug war seem a little insane concerning annual death rates:

Tobacco= 340,000 to 395,000
Alcohol (not including accidents)= 125,000+
Drug overdose (prescription)= 14,000 to 27,000
Drug overdose (illegal)= 3,800 to 5,200
Marijuana= 0
