MMJ: Facts and Common Sense as told by a MD



While one is out and about the Internet every once in a while you come across a real gem. This is a comment that I read and then felt it deserved a place to be a short blog story of its own, I hope you my readers enjoy it.

and allow people and municipalities to determine their own social policies! Many people don’t realize that Cannabis prohibitio­n is completely counter-pr­oductive as it encourages people to indulge in alcohol and/or hard drugs, which are much more dangerous than Cannabis can ever be. It is proven that Cannabis use suppresses violent urges and behaviors, and “only the unsophisti­cated” think otherwise, according to the prestigiou­s “Substance Abuse: A Comprehens­ive Textbook” 4-th Edition. Marijuana Legalizati­on was advocated by Shafer Commission in 1972, something that Pres. Nixon chose to ignore, and the Administra­tive Law Judge Francis Young said in 1988 that “marijuana is one of the safest therapeuti­cally active substances known to man”. The so-called “gateway drug” theory is completely bogus, and Cannabis itself is not physically addictive as it lacks the physical “withdrawa­l syndrome” associated with its use. Drug Marinol, much touted by the DEA, is NOT “Medical Marijuana”­, as the whole plant has over 70 active compounds, interactin­g with one another and constituti­ng the “whole” that is not at all the same as any of its “parts”, as it is the “whole” that makes “parts” to be what they are. To say that marijuana does not have medicinal properties is simply the same thing as to say that the earth is flat! This is just not a “rational” statement to make altogether. And why is it that our so-called “representatives” in Congress will talk endlessly about massive cuts in social programs, but no one dares suggest that the huge DEA “marijuana enforcement” budget should be cut, and this is what most people would support, by the way! In the end, to be sure, science and reason will prevail, while ignorance and fear will lose!
