YES, ALASKA, THERE ARE PUBLIC OFFICIALS DUMBER THAN YOUR GOVERNOR

Marijuana Policy Project - Here are some the lies they're flooding the media with, in a cynical attempt to scare voters into defeating the measure on November 4:

Marijuana is more dangerous than alcohol or tobacco - because tobacco takes a long time to kill you and alcohol has health benefits. That's according to Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter.

And here are other gems from the Massachusetts District Attorneys Association:

"By empowering drug dealers with decriminalization of marijuana, we would be empowering them to continue their violent ways: carrying and brandishing weapons; ripping off kids who get in over their heads; engaging in bloody turf wars; and indiscriminately assaulting or murdering when things don't go the way they want."

"Marijuana arrests are strongly associated with violent crime - dangerous criminals who make the wrong choice time and time again." (In reality, research shows unmistakably that marijuana - unlike alcohol - is almost never the cause of aggression or violence.)

"Very few arrests involving marijuana charges are for simple possession." (In reality, according to FBI statistics, a full 89% of marijuana arrests are for simple possession.)
