Meanwhile, the Troll-in-Chief's DEA continues to get down on Silly Stoneheads in California and elsewhere and busy taking note of scofflaw attitudes and careless encouragement of illegal drug use as expressed by many in this forum.

"In recent months,(the Troll-in-Chief's) federal officials have shuttered dozens of storefront dispensaries nationwide. Whole cannabis crops in California's Central Valley have been tilled under, and the feds have warned local and state officials not to implement laws or regulations that allow the medical use of a drug still outlawed, without exceptions, under federal law."

It's cheaper to buy it on the black market. No one's holding their breath that it's legalized. Let the US Gov take control...the price will double and they'll put 15 different sin taxes on it.

Bunch of drunks running this country. That's why it's in the crapper.

Should sitting be banned as well as BIG GULP COKES?

Big Brother Bloomberg Is Watching You!

All Stand!

"Sitting is a dangerous risk factor for early death, on par with smoking and being obese," says Peter Katzmarzyk, a researcher at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge and lead author of the study, published online Monday in BMJ Open. Smoking also cuts about two years off of life expectancy, he says."

The war on drugs, while well-intentioned, has been a failure, Chris Christie (R-NJ) said in a speech at The Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C.Were warehousing addicted people everyday in state prisons in New Jersey, giving them no treatment.

Its not the first time he has spoken out. In Camden in December he said this:I dont believe the only weapon we use against the drug problem is incarceration. I just dont think it has worked. And I think we see it over and over again that theres evidence that it hasnt.
Christie put a conservative spin on what probably caught some of his followers across the land by surprise.

If youre pro-life, as I am, you cant be pro-life just in the womb, he said.Every life is precious and every one of Gods creatures can be redeemed, but they wont if we ignore them.

Then, there is the cost to taxpayers in states hard-hit by the economic downturn.It costs us $49,000 a year to warehouse a prisoner in New Jersey state prisons last year, Christie said.A full year of inpatient drug treatment costs $24,000 a year.

You can certainly make the argument that no one should try drugs in the first place, I certainly am in that camp, Christie said,but tens of millions of people in our society do every year, and for some people they can try it and walk away from it, but for others the first time they try it they become an addict, and theyre sick and they need treatment.

Grow just enough in your place for yourself. 3 to 5 plants. Keep it to yourself. No friends or relatives need to know also. If you have children in your home then it's a No. Children should be first before anything else anyway. Buff said.

First of all, only actual "dopes" refer to it as dope.
Second, if you're going to use one study to make a generalization of cannabis' benefits for medicinal purposes over the other studies and real-life stories of those that it has actually helped, then it's pretty obvious that you've been eating the fed's BS with a power shovel.
Third, it's already been proven to help with glaucoma and to help negate the effects of chemo in cancer patients.
All this story does is say that this particular study does not offer proof that it helps with "anxiety, migraines, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder" (even though there are folks out there who would disagree as it worked for them) it does not debunk the other benefits. Nice try though.
