Anti-Pot Group Compares Orlando Tragedy to Marijuana ‘Threat’

The idiots at the Oregon chapter of anti-pot group Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM) just compared the tragedy in Orlando, Florida to the “threat” posed by making access to marijuana easier.U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer of Oregon has been a longtime supporter of making cannabis a drug that’s easier to get for Americans. He supported recreational legalization in his home state, and he has written legislation that would have allowed U.S. veterans to obtain medical marijuana recommendations from U.S. Veterans Affairs doctors.SAM over the weekend used the occasion of a Blumenauer tweet about the gay nightclub shooting to remind him that the group lacks intelligence.“Words cannot express my sorrow,” the congressman tweeted. “Disgusted by this horrific act on the LGBT community & cowardice of those who won’t pass sensible gun laws.”

SAM tweeted this back: “You can’t support 1 threat to public health/public safety and then condemn another. You have failed this state.”

Blumenauer, ever wise, appeared to get the best if not last word.

“Over 32k dead from gun violence each year in US,” he tweeted. “ZERO dead from marijuana. Your comparison is delusional & shameful.”


Early Sunday a gunman identified as Omar Mateen opened fire at an Orlando club, killing 50 and injuring 53 before SWAT cops took him out.
