A hurricane and marijuana don’t have much in common, but the president of anti-legalization group Smart Approaches to Marijuana, begs to differ.
According to Kevin Sabet, a legalization ballot measure in Michigan is the same as an actual hurricane.
Sabet wrote an op-ed in the Detroit Free Press on Friday that reads:
“Hurricane Florence is barreling down on the East Coast of the country and with it is the threat of disaster-level destruction that harkens back to Harvey, Hugo, and even Katrina.”
“While most folks in Michigan will likely be far out of harm’s way this hurricane season, there is another storm brewing on the horizon that could bring about destructive effects on public health and safety: marijuana legalization.”
This is pretty much the end of the comparison, but still enough to make most people question what he means because marijuana is not really known for killing people or destroying houses.
