“Tobacco is a product that does a lot of damage â€” marijuana is infinitely worse”
This is my new favorite quote.
Marijuana is â€œinfinitely worseâ€ than tobacco and its use should be widely discouraged in Canada, Conservative Leader Stephen Harper says.
Harper goes all in on this one. I mean, it takes some real intentional avoidance of fact to claim that marijuana is worse than tobacco to begin with. It would be really ballsy to try to claim that it was twice as bad as tobacco. It would be unthinkable to claim that it’s 1,000 times worse than tobacco – since tobacco causes about 6 million deaths per year worldwide, that would mean that marijuana would cause 6 billion deaths annually, completely eliminating the world’s population in less than 2 years.
But to reach infinitely worse? That would require complete destruction of the universe and much more.
That’s what Harper is claiming.
