|Second Largest US Physicians Group Endorses Medical Marijuana
(NaturalNews) Adam Miller May 06,2008
Transcending political controversy and stigma surrounding the subject, the second largest physician group in the country has endorsed the use, reclassification, and further study of medicinal marijuana. In a position paper issued February 14th, the American College of Physicians (ACP) makes the case that the red tape surrounding the medical use of cannabis is obscuring good science and stifling research.

What do Medical Groups and Doctors know?
D.E.A.th Waldo and Bulimic Nida Nora Sez on TV...
Bla bla wha wha maybe... with a heavy Berlin accent...
The media bows and prays to the Source of Propaganja.
Then sure as Drug Czars lie...
Coward corporate sponsor rags and cabal news headline,
LINKs to the new and improved bogey-person, place or things.
With some old dispelled myth's thrown in for good measure.
The old myths should have produced victims by now.
Before launching new old terrorists fear cards at people.
"maybe it might, in the future, could possibly link" threats.
Drug Worriers and Ditto-heads following Ush's to the Bank,
Rush & Bush Ush wurshipers, never questioning out of allegiance.
P.T. Barnum nailed it with them. A sucker born every minute... -- DdC

The FDA should change its name to the Politically Approved Food and Drug Administration - PAFDA. It's a longer acronym, but it rolls off the tongue nicely and people would appreciate its greater honesty. The agency's other option is to stop embarrassing its dedicated doctors and scientists with utterly unscientific announcements such as the recent bulletin that smoked marijuana has no medicinal value.

The AMA recommend that adequate and well-controlled studies of smoked marijuana be conducted in patients who have serious conditions for which preclinical, anecdotal, or controlled evidence suggests possible efficacy in including AIDS wasting syndrome, sever acute or delayed emesis induced by chemotherapy, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, dystonia, and neuropathic pain.

Greed Stands In The Way of Decriminalization
The commission has come to the conclusion that the moderate use of hemp drugs is practically attended by no evil results at all. ... ...moderate use of hemp... appears to cause no appreciable physical injury of any kind,... no injurious effects on the mind... [and] no moral injury whatever.

Having reviewed all the material available to us we find ourselves in agreement with the conclusion reached by the Indian Hemp Drugs Commission appointed by the Government of India (1893-94) and the New York Mayor's Committee (1944 - LaGuardia) that the long-term consumption of cannabis in moderate doses has no harmful effects" "the long-asserted dangers of cannabis are exaggerated and that the related law is socially damaging, if not unworkable
