At this weekend's HempCon medical
marijuana convention in L.A., PETA's Lettuce Ladies toke took the
opportunity to urge attendees to break their addiction—to meat.
The gals in green were
such a huge hit that they quickly gave away their entire stock of vegan
munchies—chocolate-chip cookies and faux-beef jerky—and vegetarian/vegan starter kits.
Compared to meat-eaters,
vegetarians have a 40
percent lower risk of cancer,
the disease that medical marijuana is often prescribed for. So eating plants
now may help prevent the need to smoke them down the road.
Ready to quit leafing your health to chance? Get your vegetarian/vegan
starter kit today and start enjoying the
natural high you get from protecting animals,
and the planet.
