Gov. Inslee: "We've Got The Best Weed"-- Science Disagrees

A new peer-reviewed research paper shows that young adults that used cannabis are twice more likely to experience a heart attack.

Jay Inslee, running for governor back in 2012, said he was "not comfortable" with a statewide initiative to legalize recreational marijuana and voted against it.

Later the Seattle PI would report, "Gov. Inslee is, these days, singing the praises of the once forbidden weed."

Be informed, not misled.

Science says don't use weed.

The peer-reviewed research published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal on Tuesday found that myocardial infarction, also known as a "heart attack," was more prevalent in American adults under 45 who either smoked, vaped, or consumed cannabis as edibles compared to those who did not use it.

Although smoking was the most common form of use, vaping and edibles also increased the risk of a heart attack. The study found no method was safer than another.

Inslee's personal ambitions canceled his common sense.

Running for governor of Washington State in 2012, Mr. Inslee said he just wasn't comfortable with legalizing weed. So he personally voted against Initiative 502, but it didn't matter, it passed anyway legalizing weed statewide.

The Seattle PI says the favorable vote "penetrated the 'Cascade Curtain' with support from both sides of the state."

Perhaps Inslee, knowing it would pass anyway, decided to play both sides of the issue---knowing the leftists would vote for him anyway, while maybe, just maybe a conservative, non-weed Eastside voter might mark their ballot for him. 

Who knows the mind of the so-called "progressive?"

By 2018 the PI would report, "Washington Governor Jay Inslee boasts, 'We've got the best weed' as Pot Support Blossoms."

"Gov. Inslee is, these days, singing the praises of the once forbidden weed," the Seattle newspaper says.

Inslee told host Bill Maher on his HBO show "RealTime:" "For you Bill, I can honestly say, we've got the best weed in the United States of America: It's a growing industry, and it's well regulated."

It's interesting that Jay Inslee's first reaction was not to identify as a supporter but then pivoted to become a cheerleader for pot.

The PI suggested at the time, his wavering might have something to do with his politics more than with science. Really?

The clinician-scientist at St. Michael's Hospital who co-authored the study, says the study noted that "Beyond the main finding that heart attacks are found to be more common in cannabis users, what we did find is that the more people use, the higher the risk.

According to the CDC, using marijuana caused one's heart to beat faster and can result in an increased risk of stroke and heart disease.

The agency's website says: "Smoked marijuana delivers THC and other cannabinoids to the body, but it also delivers substances found in tobacco smoke, which are harmful to the lungs and cardiovascular system."

Science says marijuana is the most commonly used addictive drug following tobacco and alcohol among young adults.

This latest study adds to a growing body of evidence that has linked cannabis use to heart complications.

The PI reports that Inslee said of President Trump: "Wouldn't it be wonderful if the first time Donald Trump said something that was actually true, if he said he'd leave us alone on our marijuana decriminalization?"

Wouldn't it be wonderful if leftists, so-called progressives, would stop telling us they simply "follow the science?"

In fact, it would be glorious if they would stop telling us they are "progressive"---when clearly they're not.
