WATCH: Chelsea Clinton Just Ignorantly Claimed Pot Is Killing People While Campaigning for Her Mom

Youngstown, OH – While speaking at a town hall meeting this weekend, Chelsea Clinton made the ridiculous claim that marijuana is killing people. She claimed that legalization in Colorado has led to deaths, despite the fact that there has never been a marijuana overdose on record.

Clinton suggested that marijuana can cause reactions with other drugs. However, marijuana is safer than most pills that are prescribed by doctors.

Speaking to a crowd of impressionable students, Clinton said, “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.”

Her comments drew criticism from people who are concerned that these ideas could foreshadow her mother’s drug policy. In her speech, she did allude to her mother’s stance on the issue, saying that “We just need so much more data than we have so that people who might benefit have the chance to benefit, people who might be in danger are protected. So absolutely my mom strongly supports the need for more rigorous study and then subjecting it, as we do kind of everything else that might have a medicinal purpose, to FDA approval, scrutiny and ultimately regulation.”

None of the claims that Clinton made can be substantiated, and there is actually plenty of evidence to disprove what she said.

As The Free Thought Project has extensively documented, since legalization took place in Colorado, violent crime is down, teenage drug use is down, addiction to prescription pharmaceuticals is down, the number of total car accidents in the state has declined, and there has been a massive boom in economic growth as well.

With all of this evidence, it becomes clear that the citizens, in states where police can kidnap, cage and kill them for this plant, are nothing short of oppressed. When a person would deprive another human being of their life and liberty for their personal choice which harms no one, they become the criminal. Legislation is no measure of morality.

In reality, a prohibition of any kind is a scam, and the drug war is a racket of many prohibitions. What the drug war actually accomplishes is the establishment of black markets and gangs, the erosion of personal liberties, the expansion of the prison system and prison population as well as a constant excuse for frivolous government spending. This hypothesis has been tested time and time again, anytime throughout history where a ruling power has prohibited the consumption or possession of any item whatsoever.

This process was made quite clear during the alcohol prohibition of the 1920s and 1930s. As we saw with alcohol prohibition, making a substance illegal does nothing to stifle its use, but simply creates outlaws out of nonviolent people and foments a culture of violence that the rest of society is forced to deal with, even if they have no interest at all in the banned substance.

Prohibitions of any kind should be opposed, for the reasons I have laid out in the past. However, marijuana is of a specific immediate importance because of its ability to heal sick people and create more environmentally friendly industrial products. It is also one of the safest drugs known to our species.

The only thing a marijuana user has to fear from using marijuana — is the state. It is time to end the war on drugs.

    This little girl has been walking around long enough to know BETTER. Is she really this stupid/UNinformed, or… is someone funding her attempt to sound this stupid ??? Either way, the information currently available, certainly does NOT support this utter BULLSHIT.

      I assume mom gave her a little cash to spread these lies around.

    The fact that this bold faced lie wasn’t challenged is exactly the fucking reason we’ve got the choice between a shit sandwich and a giant douche bag in this years election.
    America is full of fucking morons.

    Chelsea is as dishonest as mom and dad, shame she ended up with a horrible blend of both “Slick Willie’s” and “Killary’s” looks. The apple never really falls far from the tree, unless it grows legs and a brain and runs like hell to distance herself from such a terrible embarrassment, but I suppose if you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth, given everything you want, including a huge salary for basically doing nothing it’s not such a big deal to live with the embarrassment of your parents.

    • junktex

      Her dad,Hubbell?

  • Chelsea is pulling this “evidence” out of her ass to please her mother’s Big Pharma donors.

    Sorry potheads, but the holy weed can be as injurious to your health as tobacco. Aside from the dearth of potheads over 80 there are many other things to consider. Dr. Clinton is only guilt of mild hyperbole. http://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/marijuana/safety/hrb-20059701

        Excellent response, I produce evidence and you simply choose to remain ignorant. And you don’t seem to mind exposing your childish blather for everyone to see..

    • Nexdeceptus

      Your mayo clinic article reads like something out of the thirties. Do you really think ‘pubic hair” in Polish is a good name for you. I DO! LMAO.

      • Publius.Polis

        Of course you are in a position to refute some of the best medical minds in the world. Where did you get your medical degree? When confronted with facts do you normally react like a 10 year old, os it this your actual intellectual age?

        • Nexdeceptus

          My medical degree is 50 years of hands on experience. Nuff said.

          • Publius.Polis

            No one cares where your hands have been for the last 50 years. Not enough said. I’ve been breathing for 70 years and yet I’m not an expert on air pollution.

          Best medical minds?America has some of the worst healthcare stats in the developed world.LMAO.

    • william beeby

      Sorry PP you are full of BS ….almost as bad as this Chelsea creature and should know better. Tobacco kills , pot doesn`t and is actually a medication but was made illegal for purely political purposes with zilch medical evidence . NO research was done on it until an Israeli scientist discovered THC as the active ingredient and that was in 1972 ! It is STILL illegal in the US to carry out research on it as a beneficial drug because it is labelled as class 1 the same as heroin which is just plain stupid. The FEderal authorities have known this for ages now but after locking up millions of people and ruining their lives it must be hard for them to admit they were wrong in the first place. Also it has now been admitted that Nixon`s ” war on Drugs ” was just so they could target black people and anti-war protesters in 1970 , just after a study was released saying that marijuana was harmless and should be legalised . Nixon threw the report in the White House rubbish bin and ordered the start of the War on Drugs leading to the incarceration and targetting of blacks and other undesirables. This was recently admitted by his close aid John Erlichman if you wish to look it up.

      • junktex

        That Israeli scientist’s research was financed by the US govt. as well.

      • Publius.Polis

        You have no standing to refute the medical experts at the Mayo
        Clinic or the CDC. Unless you can supply scientific evidence to support your rather anxious opinions your judgement is at best questionable. You have let your uninformed turgid emotional state cloud your judgement. Why are so many on this thread so paranoid about things they cannot know anything about such as the clinical effects of smoking weed? Anecdotal experience is all but useless when attempting to clinically evaluate a substance. So unless you have something useful to add to the conversation (and childish name calling is not useful) you may be better off directing your attention to improving your knowledge of biochemistry and human physiology. Only then will your reaction contain less whining and more actual information.

    • junktex

      You poor gullible Murrkan.Of course organized medicine is hostile to Cannabis.They are in thrall to Big Pharma every bit as much as our corrupt government is.That article is pure BS like many medical journal entries.

    “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.”

    >>

    Chelsea, who will continue to serve on the Clinton Foundation Board if her mommy is elected president, follows in her footsteps. What she says amounts to a smear by implication. What she says is so wrong and so stupid that one wants to reply: if the coroner believes that “after they died, there was a drug interaction with other things they were taking,” what exactly is the problem?

  • Paschn

    What many in this “used/abused” culture don’t
    understand, Rockefellers, Bushes, Morgans, Rothschilds, Schiffs Morganthaus and all “dynastic” blood-sucking murderers, cultivate the obscene reptilian mind-set in
    their spawn to carry the despicable nature of same, generation after
    generation ad nauseum. Clinton’s are no different. Ever hear the old
    saying, “you can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear”? Well,
    as it applies to these horrid dynasties who interbreed to avoid
    diluting the line with normal decent human emotions it’s merely
    business as usual. If, somewhere in the future, we “Goim” grow
    our spines/genitalia back and take control of our world from these
    reptilians the first thing on the agenda should be removing the
    animals from the gene pool as they have tried with us. Our
    advantage is an obvious one – We, being used to fending for
    ourselves, don’t NEED the filth – They, on the other hand, NEED us
    if only to empty their chamber pots, till and harvest, offer our
    wives/daughters for their pleasure. They wipe us out, they will
    eventually die out like a slug on parched earth. We wipe THEM out – Peace, honor,
    decency will return. All it will take is a spark….

    Maybe Chelsea likes the DEA. She is obviously not a member of NORML. From their blog of July 8, 2016:

    (quote)
    The initial petition NORML filed to reschedule marijuana in 1973 ended up being an endurance test. The agency refused to even acknowledge our petition or respond to it until we went to the court of appeals and forced them to respond. And this strategy of ignore and delay continued at every step, dragging the process out for 15 years until 1988, when DEA Chief Administrative Law Judge Francis Young, following days of testimony, finally ruled in our favor.

    The ruling concluded that “Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man. By any measure of rational analysis marijuana can be safely used within a supervised routine of medical care.”

    Judge Young continued: “It would be unreasonable, arbitrary and capricious for DEA to continue to stand between those sufferers and the benefits of this substance in light of the evidence in this record.

    However, the DEA Administrator simply ignored the decision of his own hearing examiner and rejected our petition, claiming the hearing examiner had relied on anecdotal evidence. NORML again appealed that decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals, but the court allowed the Administrator’s decision to stand, saying he had acted within his discretion.
    (end quote)

    Just imagine how different the situation would be for cannabis proponents, if the judge had more clearly ruled that, “Marijuana, in its natural form, IS IDENTIFIED AS CANNABIS, WHICH is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man. CANNABIS, IN ITS SMOKED FORM, IS IDENTIFIED AS MARIJUANA. By any measure of rational analysis marijuana can be safely used within a supervised routine of medical care.”

    This would have exposed the riddle of the current federal definition, and could have prevented so many problems created by the DEA’s arbitrary and capricious interpretation of that riddle.

    To reel in the DEA, this reform of the federal definition of marijuana will de-schedule the versatile cannabis plant by clearly stating the distinction that the judge failed to make:

    Sec.802.(16). The term “marijuana” means all parts of the smoke produced by the combustion of the plant Cannabis sativa L. which is prohibited to be grown by or sold by any publicly traded corporation or subsidiary company.

    This reform specifies the singular holistic meaning of the current federal definition, and actually conforms to Necessary and Proper clause. As well, it preserves the debatable prohibitions which result from the current schedule of the current definition, and it provides the “reasoned pathway for future legalization” according to this formula which is suitable for printing on T-shirts: 99% * 0.3% * 710 => 420

    By examining the text of the current definition, people may be convinced to give serious feedback to the candidates to reinvigorate our democracy. This year is a good time to examine that definition, and to contact your candidates for Congress.

    See the current federal definition of marijuana:
    http://www.fda.gov/regulatoryinformation/legislation/ucm148726.htm

    Other uses for the plant Cannabis sativa L. are in Sec.7606 on page 264:
