Maine Gov. Paul LePage Cautions Against 'Deadly' Marijuana in New Video

By    |   Friday, 14 Oct 2016 02:22 PM

In a bid to lure voters to choose "no" on "Question 1" of the marijuana legalization referendum, Maine Gov. Paul LePage came out with an exaggerated and misleading video about how harmful pot can be, The Huffington Post reported.

"Question 1 is not just bad for Maine, it can be deadly," LePage cautions in the video, and goes on to claim the road tragedies have increased dramatically in Colorado after the state legalized recreational pot.

LePage also states that marijuana is "three times stronger than it was in the 1980s."

According to the Republican governor, people addicted to marijuana are more likely to be addicted to heroin, which he claimed was already the reason for many deaths in the U.S.

LePage further elaborates that marijuana if accidentally consumed by children and pets, could lead to death. He also tries to paints a picture that marijuana smokers will be spotted everywhere — at parks, school and churches, which will not be good for society.

Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada are among nine states who will vote this November to legalize marijuana for recreational purposes.

Arkansas, Florida, Montana and Missouri, will decide whether to allow doctors to prescribe marijuana for medicinal use.
