Cannabis would obviously kill many times that number, if it was legal.


Bullshit: check how many people dies for cannabis in Holland, where

Phil was being sarcastic or ironic, I can't easily distinguish
between
the two modes of typing myself but he was being humorous.

I wonder which moduality of cannabis action would lead to death
on a large scale. Perhaps if it was really strong you would forget
to exhale? Or maybe when you bought that ounce you would spend your
food and rent money because you forgot about those vital matters and
die on the street because of the Assassin of Youth. ;^)
