God gave us a miraculous universe

Everything we needed was provided for us. But evil men are jealous of God and try to play God. If cannabis is in nature, there is a reason, a reason, a time, a purpose for everything under heaven. My doctor is against herbs & coffee - concerned about my health. Yet he'll gladly prescribe synthetic heroine/oxycodone, steroids, drugs with very dangerous side effects, and vaccines with mercury and sv40 virus. I remember this story, I think it was from Dr. Russell Blaylock. In the early part of the 1900's... Standard Oil was widely hated. The owner, Rockefeller, wanted to restore his reputation through philantrophy. (likely story) He began to donate huge amounts of money to all the medical schools. Next, he started the pharmecutical company. After that, almost all collges of natural medicine were shut down. As Huxley stated, "We're going to arrest the development of the working class. And we'll do it chemically as well". (water supply, GMO, chemtrailing) The war on your health and life continues, but we will win this one!

Shes just scared that he is

Shes just scared that he is going to use her answer against her at some point. The same with many of these agency heads.....fearful of losing their job. One of the biggest obstacles we face in trying to get people on board with common sense ideas that will go a long way to curing what ails this country.

Truth before all else.....it is what will allow us to emerge with dignity and honor.

This guy is my congressman...

This guy is my congressman... and to be honest, I like him more-so than either of the GOP candidates who are in a primary fight for his seat. I just may have to vote democrat for that particular election....

Too much big government

I think he nailed the point

I think he nailed the point on the head... with "you are an expert"

Technically she should be an expert in this field, but her official stance equate all drugs as equal. Anyone with a basic understanding of medicine knows this completely false.

So, if someone is designated as an expert in a field is making statements that are completely false... why has she not been removed from her job?

I guess her position is that she is their to enforce the law and she has no say whether the laws are justifiable or completely baseless.

The Government (read DEA) has

The Government (read DEA) has been given permission to lie to the American people regarding the safety of marijuana or any drug.

White House Gets Permission to Lie

WASHINGTON - March 11 - Responding to a request by U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), the General Accounting Office (ONDCP), the investigative arm of Congress, yesterday gave the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy unfettered permission to mislead the public in the name of opposing "drug legalization."

In the run-up to the November 2002 elections, ONDCP campaigned aggressively against state ballot measures to reform marijuana laws and other anti-drug policies. Part of this effort was a letter to local prosecutors from ONDCP Deputy Director Scott Burns, which made a number of statements considered misleading by experts, including the claims that "marijuana and violence are linked" and "no credible research suggests" that marijuana has medical uses.

In an April 2, 2003, letter, which is available on-line at http://www.mpp.org/WarOnDrugCzar/complaints/gao_complaint.html , Paul asked the GAO to investigate whether the Burns letter violated the ban on use of taxpayer funds for "publicity and propaganda" as well as the longstanding GAO position that "the government should not disseminate misleading information."

In its March 10 response to Paul, the GAO declared, in essence, that the truth or falsity of ONDCP's statements is irrelevant. "ONDCP is specifically charged with the responsibility for `taking such actions as necessary to oppose any attempt to legalize the use' of certain controlled substances such as marijuana," wrote GAO General Counsel Anthony Gamboa. "Given this role, we do not see a need to examine the accuracy of the Deputy Director's individual statements in detail." GAO's response: http://www.mpp.org/pdf/GAO_response_0304.pdf

The declaration appears to contradict prior GAO actions. In 1976, for example, the GAO ruled that a pamphlet about nuclear energy was "not a proper document for release to the public" because of its misleading and one-sided statements.

"Amazingly, the GAO has ruled that the truth simply doesn't matter in the so-called `War on Drugs,'" said Steve Fox, director of government relations for the Marijuana Policy Project in Washington, D.C. "This is even more shocking than the simultaneous GAO ruling on the administration's Medicare ads. In that case they suggested the ads were perhaps in a gray zone, but here they are saying that accuracy is irrelevant and lying is not a problem. We believe the American public expects better from their government."
