This is "the strongest evidence" they've got? Well, let's spark one up, in that case! They've got next to nothing as evidence! I mean, c'mon! It's almost like asking which came first- the chicken or the egg? Don't most mentally disturbed individuals typically turn to substance abuse before getting any professional help? I'd say that's a known fact, so I've no doubt that a high percentage of people with schizophrenia have tried marijuana at least once or attempted to self medicate with it unsuccessfully long before reporting any symptoms. Afterall, marijuana is a "gateway drug", right? To say that using marijuana increases your risk of suffering from a mental disorder by 40% remains, at best, a hypothesis, and a very biased one, at that. What a waste of time, money, and effort!

I feel it should be an individuals choice to smoke or not. It's a seed that means alot more that just getting high. Are constituion is wrote on it so that shows it can be used for paper. the oil that is produced can be refined for fuel. A long time ago alot of rope was made from hemp. So let us look at the resoruces.

I AGREE
It's the best medicine I found. It works for a lot of different ailments. I just wish the gov would stop trying to show the pride of the big drug companies and leagelize it.

I've growed big plants before and in 1998 I growed one plant that yielded 7 1/2 lbs. over 5 lbs was solid bud. None sold. Since then I haven't gotten the first seed to grow.
Oh Yea, I have m/s and it helped make my days easier.

No, it's not. It's calculated to preserve a very lucrative pharmaceutical business.

What would happen if people could just grown their own natural remedy?

Is the Constitution really written on paper made from hemp?

Yes the Constituition was written on hemp paper,the first flag was sewn on hemp cloth also. It was requred to grow a certain per centage of your crops as hemp at one time in America. George Bush Sr parachute cords were made of hemp. Saddam Hussein was hung with a hemp rope. http://www.slate.com/id/2153186/

How Do Hangings Work? Saddam's visit to the gallows, explained. By Daniel Engber Saddam Hussein will be executed in February, unless he can convince an appeals court to overturn the sentence handed down on Sunday. According to Iraqi law, the death penalty consists of "hanging the condemned person by the neck until he is dead." How do they hang people these days? The same way they hanged criminals 100 years ago. The trick to a successful hanging is to have the victim drop an appropriate distance through a trapdoor before the rope goes taut against his neck. If he drops too far, he'll have picked up so much speed that the noose might decapitate him. If he doesn't drop far enough, he could remain conscious as he slowly strangles to death. But if you get the "drop" just right, the knot of the noose will snap against his neckĀ—and either kill him or knock him unconscious. The last major innovation in hanging occurred toward the end of the 19th century, when executioners first developed a systematic way to calculate the drop. Once these "drop tables" were published, a hangman knew that he'd need 7 feet for a slight, 120-pound criminal, but only about 4 feet for a 200-pounder. In the United States, only Washington and New Hampshire still perform hangings. These jurisdictions follow now-defunct U.S. Army regulations for the punishment.--- The military rules demand 30 feet of hemp rope that has been boiled, stretched, and dried.---- The bottom of the rope should be greased or waxed to make sure that the knot of the noose doesn't get snagged, and the whole system should be tested with a sandbag dummy before the actual hanging takes place ******Here is the humor,irony or clincher the US has/had to IMPORT HEMP ROPE for military hangings as it is/was illegal to grow hemp in America. You are/were hung with a plant substance,hemp,which is illegal,punishable by imprisonment,to grow in America.

Wow, that's really interesting.

Thanks for that.

Do you happen to know if it's okay for the City of Santa Fe to turn off my water for not paying my sewer and garbage fast enough?

They were giving me till Friday, but then I went to get a drink of water... and there was only a trickle. And I have this infuriating brain injury so I watched the trickle trying to figure out why the water was behaving that way... so I didn't save it... and now I don't have water...

Is this the new American way...?

This actualy has been proven in many of my cases I have many clients who have and still do smoke marijuana and most of them have developed schizophrenia.The rest have not reached that point yet.They just have thoughts of killing poeple and how they can kill people.They also claim to see demons and say they have a demon inside them.My clients all have many traits that relate to some of the most dangeros killers.Such as Charels Manson, Ed Kemper,and Jeffre Dhamer.Those are some examples of the killer they relate to.if you would like to know more about my study you can reach me at [email protected]
I have notes and documents that can prove this if you would like to see them.I would be glad to send them to you.
Sincerely,
Karina Garcia
