Colombia remains the world’s largest producer and exporter of coc aine, as well as a source country for heroin and marijuana. According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, 90 percent of the coc aine seized in the United States originates in Colombia. Colombia’s marijuana is typically not sent to the United States, but rather feeds internal and Latin American consumption

maybe not directly, but indirectly, it obvious by now that many do die.
Taking it for medicinal purposes is fine but the problem is the stoners, the potheads and druggies take this stuff just for the hell of it.
They take because they just want to get high,
Nothing is gained and lives and careers are wasted as a result.
In the process they just keep making the cartels richer and richer and the people that pay the price of death are the innocent folks that get caught in the crossfire as the cartels battle it out, in order to keep supplying the stoners, potheads and druggies.
The cycle needs to stop, somewhere.
Think about it.
