The double standards guiding New York’s Governor Cuomo in his political machinations with respect to fracking and his professed concern over health are revealed in his latest actions to legalize some pot.
According to the Cancer Research UK site:
Cannabis smoke contains many of the same cancer causing substances (carcinogens) as tobacco – at least 50 of them..Many people who smoke cannabis smoke tobacco cigarettes and drink alcohol too. Research evidence suggests that the combination of smoking tobacco, using cannabis and drinking alcohol can increase your risk of developing a cancer even further.
Governor Cuomo has recently suggested using seized marijuana for medical proposes. However, one feels about legalization, it’s still strange a Governor so worried about the health effects of fracking would not have done more due diligence in researching the dangers of Cannabis; things like the cancer threat, the potential lacing of the product by unscrupulous drug dealers who compete in the street market of illegal drugs and the social costs. Yet, he did not, and the reason is obvious; political correctness with his New York base demands a Bible-sized set of double standards and this Governor is nothing if not politically correct. There’s no backbone in the man or he would have approved fracking by now as well.
