Voodoo science? What are you on about? There are a number of suppressed studies that show Marijuana has beneficial effects, placebo and otherwise.
It relieves symptoms of hundreds of diseases, and may set back the progression of Alzheimers by decades!
I think the problem is that the symptoms attributed to mental illness are in fact symptoms of waking up from a coma induced by a two faced,
hypocritcal 'moral' society. Those individuals who smoke cannabis are productive members of society and must not be discriminated against. Once
again, I don't doubt the accuracy of the study, I just refuse to accept the current definition of mental illness. Look at the symptoms for crying
out loud. They describe NORMAL PEOPLE with NORMAL FEELINGS, now criminalized.
The statutes are in place to lock up those with mental health problems, without the consent of their family, and without due process. That means that
Marijuana smokers (since they're now all insane!) can be abused in the same way as the mentally ill. We are becoming a fascist society, and so many
of you are rooting for it it's sickening.
Jail terms for Herb Abuse is a ludicrous waste of money and resources. Too much Nutmeg can drive you insane too, does that mean we should lock people
up and take away their rights for making the christmas ham? Of course not, it's a food and a fiber, not the devil incarnate.
The federal resources being devoted to chasing down and incarcerating these abusers of garden weeds could be used to secure our borders, but then the
government coc aine wouldn't get through, and that is intolerable.
Are our priorities as a society really so far from Reason that any of this makes sense? Why is it that sane men are perceived as madmen? Well,
society must be insane, it's the only explanation.
They're talking about legalizing MDMA for PTSD, and that's a 'good' idea? Those soldiers could be smoking all natural THC, grown at the cost of
pennies a pound. Of course, then the pharmacuetical companies and chemical companies and oil companies wouldn't get their share of the profits. If
it's not clear to people yet, it never will be. The system is based on hypocrisy, lies are truth, the truth is a lie, and if you're not free
already, you probably never will be.
A final note; Freedom is meaningless when given, it must be taken.
