  • Marijuana has never killed anybody.
    It’s proved more helpful than harmful.

    The WAR on Marijuana, waged by maniacs with an agenda, has ruined countless lives and cost our country a kings ransom already.

    Soon enough government greed will kick in and it will be legalized nationwide and taxed. It’s just a matter of time.

    Meanwhile I put what I want in my own body, regardless what some deuce bag hypocrite politician thinks. And THAT, my friend, is why the war on weed is unwinable.

  • I’ll give you some examples.
    Smoking ANYTHING is bad for your lungs.
    In places where MJ is legal it’s available in edible form, saving countless lungs from breathing smoke, which is never good for anyone’s lungs.

    SPICE is another example of something that actually does kill people. The ONLY reason for the market for synthetic MJ, aka SPICE, is the fact that MJ is illegal.

    Thanks to the Gov, we have damaged lungs and poison being smoked by people who can’t have MJ in their system due to probation or job drug screening.

    The ‘war on MJ’ served its purpose. It was an idea cooked up in the 1930’s to keep Mexicans on their side of the border.

    Like Jeff said, we have hypocrites like Chris Christie and Jeb Bush who actually want to keep the war on MJ going in spite of the fact that they both smoked it when they were younger.

    Do you vote? There are a couple names you can scratch off your list of presidential hopefuls.
    Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. That prohibition thing worked out so well, didn’t it! (For Al Capone).

  • Ultram is not a true ‘opioid’ in spite of what Wikipedia says. Percocet or Morphine would have better illustrated your point. At this point, however, names like morphine or percocet are well known as being extremely addictive. In fact there are big red warning labels on bottles given from pharmacies warning as much. Your suggestion,,, too little, too late.

  • I just read that article. It ends with “Should MJ become widely available…”
    That ship sailed years ago!
    It’s been widely available for DECADES!

    The article says that its harmful cognitive and psychological effects will take time to capture in studies.
    For half a century now, anyone who wants to smoke it has. There’s your study.

    If doctors like this, and the FDA, REALLY wanted to study the effects of MJ then WHY do they IGNORE the yearly International Cannabinoid Research Symposium that’s been going on for the past TWENTY FIVE YEARS?

    Doctors and researchers from around the world share 25 years worth of research and data but no one from the FDA is there. All the research is being done, and IGNORED by doctors and Federal agencies with an agenda.

    They NEED their drug war.
    How else can they justify paying the DEA $70,000,000 a day?

    Legalize it. Regulate it. Quality control it. Tax it.
    Keep the MONEY in the US economy and away from cartels and black market dealers.

  • Parents Opposed to Pot is nothing but a website that posts anti cannabis propaganda then censors comments that do not agree with their beliefs.
    The 2 or 3 maniacs who support them give them pats on the back, which they leave in the COMMENT area, giving the illusion that their TAINTED take on things is the general consensus on the subject, which is hardly the case.
    Then they beg for money. What a JOKE!

    Their whole thought process (not unlike the ‘Heaven’s Gate Cult’ of 1997, who killed themselves to hop a ride to heaven on a comet) is completely twisted and tainted. They cherry pick tragic stories with marijuana related content and blame the entire horror of the story on marijuana.

    EXAMPLE: The mad man who killed the innocent young lady recently in San Francisco was high on MJ. THAT is why he did it.
    The fact that he had a Federal agent’s gun, and the court system failed to deport him, and the border patrol failed to keep him out of the US, all had nothing to do with him shooting the lady. It was because he was high that this happened.
    Utter nonsense.

    Or a man killed his wife and he was high on MJ. For all we know he may have killed her even sooner if he wasn’t high, but they hold that up as the one and only contributing factor to the tragedy without bothering to provide any basis for ANYTHING they say. You can find more truth in a screening of ‘Reefer Madness’ than on this website.

    It’s supposedly trying to help kids stay away from weed while simultaneously keeping MJ on the black market only, where kids can easily get their hands on it, unlike alcohol or cig’s which are regulated and need a middle man for a kid to obtain.

    Perhaps they are not working for big pharma companies that would be hurt by legalizing MJ, or maybe they’re not a front by the Mexican drug cartels trying to keep the cannabis business to themselves but it’s easy to see why one could conclude that they may be.

    One thing is for sure. Whether it’s legal or not, if someone wants to get high that’s exactly what they’re going to do. The only real question is who gets the $$? Drug dealers or the US economy?
