WikiLeaks Emails Expose Alcohol Industry’s Paid Campaign to Stifle Pot Legalization – Anonymous

It's no surprise that the Alcohol industry wants to interfere in the legalization of cannabis. Now it seems that there is proof of their meddling, as new information has been revealed in the latest Wiki
Leaks release.

Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA) is one of the many names found in Hillary Clinton's emails, but the tone of the email is what cannabis advocates should take note of. Found deep in the email, at the footnote, WSWA goes on to say the following. (Italics ours)

A message from Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America:

While neutral on the issue of legalization, WSWA believes states that legalize marijuana need to ensure appropriate and effective regulations are enacted to protect the public from the dangers associated with the abuse and misuse of marijuana.

23 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medicinal marijuana while Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, Washington and D.C. have legalized possession and recreational use. In the years since the state legalized medicinal use,

Colorado law enforcement officials have documented a significant increase in traffic fatalities in which drivers tested positive for marijuana. 

 Congress should fully fund Section 4008 of the FAST Act (PL 114-94) in the FY 2017 Appropriations process to document the prevalence of marijuana impaired driving, outline impairment standards and determine driving impairment detection methods.

The results of the Colorado law enforcement's report of driving fatalities are in dispute as well. This is notable as the charge of thousands of cannabis related driving deaths in reality shrinks to around 50 once you factor in alcohol or other drugs that were also involved in the incidents. A fact I would think WSWA would have you overlook.

No word on if Bill finally inhaled that bong rip.
