In 1974, California Governor Ronald Reagan was asked about decriminalizing marijuana.

Marijuana. Harmless?

"Marijuana leads to homosexuality ... and therefore to AIDS."
-- Carlton Turner - Former Drug Czar (Reagan)

"Casual drug users should be taken out and shot."
-- Daryl Gates - Former LAPD Chief

"Not only are we here to protect the public from vicious criminals
in the street but also to protect the public from harmful ideas."

-- Robert Ingersoll - Former DEA Director (1972)



DeJaVu 1930's

"Marihuana leads to pacifism and communist brainwashing"

"Marijuana is the most violence-causing drug in the history of mankind."

"How many murders, suicides, robberies, criminal assaults, holdups,
burglaries and deeds of maniacal insanity it causes each year,
especially among the young, can only be conjectured...
No one knows, when he places a marijuana cigarette to his lips,
whether he will become a joyous reveller in a musical heaven,
a mad insensate, a calm philosopher, or a murderer..."

-- Harry J. Anslinger - America's 1st Drug Czar (FDR - JFK)



Czar’s Strategy

"I want a Goddamn strong statement on marijuana,
I mean one that just tears the ass out of them.
You know, it's a funny thing,
every one of the bastards that are out for legalizing marijuana is Jewish."

-- Richard M. Nixon - Former President

Nixon lied to schedule Ganja #1.

If Freedom of the Press Isn’t Harmless,
Why Am I Not In Favor of Censorship?
The “Latest Research” Shows
Long Term Incompetent Journalism Leads To Shrinking Freedom.

Posted by Richard Cowan on 2008-06-03 16:20:00


My point is that both the “research” and the “reporting” here are inherently political – and therefore deceitful. The arguments against marijuana prohibition are no more based on the assumption that cannabis is harmless than the arguments against censorship are based on the assumption that such crappy reporting is harmless.

We never hear anyone ask if marijuana prohibition is “harmless.” If only freedom remains “controversial,” then we are already slaves. Read Full Story...

"Claims ... about a 20- or 30-fold increase in cannabis potency and about adverse mental health effects are not supported by the evidence."

For the second time in seven months, Hailey voters approved a trio of municipal ballot measures liberalizing local marijuana law enforcement policies. Read Full Story...

In fact, there is substantial evidence that their own problems with cocaine – and their consequent vulnerability to blackmail by the narks – kept both Clinton and Bush toeing the prohibitionist party line. And as the Mena, Arkansas, story illustrates, their “problems” were not confined just to personal use. Read Full Story...



Brainiac
DWR: Wednesday, June 4, 2008

The drug czar has teamed up with The Daily Mail Reuters to promote the latest in anti-marijuana junk science.

The bold headline: Heavy marijuana use shrinks brain parts: study. Ut oh. We're in trouble now.

Except...

1. We're talking about people who smoked 5 jpints a day for 20 years, and.

2. The study did not in fact find that marijuana use shrinks brain parts.

The researchers acknowledged that the study did not prove it was the marijuana and not some other factor that triggered these brain differences.

I'd love to get paid to do studies that determine things without having to actually determine them.

But instead, I simply tried my own unscientific experiment and compared the brains of noted pot smoker Carl Sagan and noted non-pot smoker John Walters (which i was able to borrow and return without it being missed). In every test performed, Sagan's brain won handily, despite being dead for 12 years.

Marijuana. Harmless?

Um, no. But probably less harmful than -- prohibition, alcohol, cigarettes, aspirin, global warming, working as a miner, politicians, prison, Hostess Twinkies, jogging, driving, sex, cheeseburgers, skiing...

The men had smoked at least five marijuana cigarettes daily for on average 20 years.

Among the 15 heavy marijuana users in the study, the hippocampus volume was 12 percent less and the amygdala volume was 7 percent less than in 16 men who were not marijuana users, the researchers said.

Sorry, these are very precise figures for my liking. more scaremongering.

I agree David. The study doesn't prove dick. How do we know these anomolies weren't only prevalant in those 15 people due to some other reason?

Worthless pieces of crap. Seriously. These people don't deserve to be part of society. How long will society tolerate the abuse?
