Documentary on Marijuana Exposes the Consequences of Legalization

Two young Foundation for a Drug-Free World attendees read the "Truth About Marijuana" booklet that FDFW provided to inform the public on the effects of marijuana on the body and mind.

There are over 400 chemicals in marijuana, including the same cancer-causing substances that are in tobacco. So the basic facts of marijuana haven’t changed just because it’s marketed as a ‘medicine'.”
— Julieta Santagostino, President of FDFW Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, October 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ -- To expose the harsh realities of marijuana, the Foundation for a Drug-Free World (FDFW) Florida chapter, a nonprofit organization that seeks to empower youth and adults through drug education, will be holding the second in a series of screenings of the award-winning documentary, Marijuana X, on Wednesday October 16th. The first screening of the film by independent filmmaker, Michael DeLeon, occurred on the 9th of October.

Through the series of interviews DeLeon did with Colorado community activists, officials, doctors, neighbors and even homeless, Marijuana X reveals the multitude of false promises made to voters in order to get their agreement for legalizing marijuana.

“Although it is one of the most abused drugs in the world, some people think that since marijuana is now legal in some places, it must be safe,” said FDFW Florida president Julieta Santagostino. “Yet there are over 400 chemicals in marijuana, including the same cancer-causing substances that are in tobacco. So the basic facts of marijuana haven’t changed just because it’s marketed as a ‘medicine.’”

As part of their educational and prevention mission, FDFW has put together booklets containing factual information on the most commonly abused drugs, and in this case, marijuana. Anyone can order free copies of these booklets or read them online at www.drugfreeworld.org.

The next showing for the documentary Marijuana X will be at the FDFW Florida center at 41 N. Fort Harrison Avenue this coming Wednesday, October 23rd, at 7pm. To RSVP, please call 727-467-6962 or email info.fl@drugfreeworld.org.
