About 75,000 die each year from causes attributable to alcohol. This is in STARK contrast to the fact that the number of deaths attributable to marijuana use is practically zero.
I am offended by the misinformation and propaganda regarding concerns over proposed marijuana dispensaries. I live in a community of about 6 square miles, with what seems like a liquor store on every corner. This does not include the countless bars and restaurants that also serve liquor or the smaller stores that sell beer and wine.
