2. Let's do the math for Tobacco, Sugar, Chocoloate, Alcohol etc. too
Edited on Thu Apr-14-11 04:31 AM by Democracyinkind
The bullshit that passes for "science" on DU these days - it keeps astounding me. I'm not disputing the math; I'm disputing the language - "causes global warmin" - what a load of dung.

(Almost) every human activity "causes" global warming in this narrow sense - and I bet allot of the Marijuana that is produced in the US compares favourably to other activities among the 99% category. Then again; if Marijuana weren't illegal, it could be farmed on an industrial scale much more efficiently and wouldn't waste as much energy. In the dishonest terminology of this article this would read the following way: THE WAR ON DRUGS CAUSES GLOBAL WARMING !!!!111!!!!111
