I think in a way Gravel is correct. How many people die from OD on Marijuana compared to how many die from OD on Alcohol.
But for Ben Ferguson to compare smoking pot to murder or slavery is just insane.
Just seems Fox wanted to sling some mud at Gravel for wanting to legalize pot. Think of the money they could get off taxing pot, also the biggest part for the war on drugs would be cut out, saving probably billions there also.
Plenty of countries have pot legalized, yet crime actually goes down, the government brings in more tax revenue. You still can get a DUI, so where did Gravel ever say, just because pot is legal means you can drive around all day high?
