Wow. This guy travelled all the way to Iowa just to give them a combination of outright lies and dramatic misstatements.
A Denver-area police officer cautioned Siouxlanders Friday not to follow down the path of his own state on marijuana. […]
â€œIf you legalize it, then youâ€™re done,” Gerhardt said at a news conference Friday. “There is going to be no way to contain it.â€
In the last four years, there has been a 92-percent increase in marijuana-related fatal car accidents in the state, according to data from the Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Program, a component of the National Drug Control Strategy. Overall, fatal car accidents rose by 8 percent, Gerhardt said.
Joining him with the false fear mongering was Peter Komendowski, president of the Partnership for a Drug-Free Iowa:
Komendowski said parents and their children should be educated on health risks that might come with marijuana so they are prepared.
â€œIf we have to wait for a test to see if theyâ€™re really impaired, or if we have to go to do the morgue, itâ€™s too late,â€ he said.
