Historic Congressional Testimony Exposing the Truth about Marijuana Prohibition

Columbia Professor and Neuroscientist, Dr. Carl Hart, sets the record straight on the effects of marijuana in humans.

Given this rare opportunity, Dr. Hart also sheds light on the devastating adverse life course effects that marijuana prohibition has had on minority populations who are disproportionately vulnerable to the casualties of the War on Drugs.

While the video above highlights Dr. Hart's testimony, I strongly recommend watching the entire video when you have a couple of hours to spare. Make some popcorn and invite some friends over. You can't buy this kind of entertainment, much less watch it for FREE!!!

What a Champ!

Actually examining some evidence and coming to a conclusion that outsets his preset beliefs, and then fighting for it!

Nice work.

Two Questions Regarding The So-Called "Gateway" Issue

1. If many of those who listen to Grateful Dead music regularly go on to smoke marijuana, should we ban Grateful Dead music?

2. If many of those in motorcycle gangs started out riding bicycles, should we ban bicycles?

"experts", that is what they say, but never subjectively

because if any of these experts had a subjective bone in their body they would see what they know to be true rather than believe what they are told is true.

At what point do we call these "experts", who can only conjure up conjecture,what they truly are, a congregation. They are a belief system that gets paid no different than the Roman Catholic church got paid to expertize the bible.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

RE: Rep John Fleming's hypocritical statement @ 21:20min

He states that "as a physician, what I don't want to do is throw medication at children." Someone should ask him what is he doing about this?

Too many kids are taking antipsychotic drugs and use is climbing despite questions of safety and efficacy

Antipsychotic treatment in adolescence causes enduring specific memory impairments and alters cortical development and function.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23437365

Because these drugs are FDA approved, there is little oversight until the damage is done. Consider the SSRIs that the FDA now acknowledges with black box warnings that these drugs increase the risk of suicidal ideation and behavior in adolescents.

Fleming needs to be reminded that FDA sanctioned Medical care is 3rd leading cause of death in U.S.

For those who missed it, Fleming's made outrageous statements last month about marijuana and libertarianism:

"Dr. Hart also makes light of..."

I think you mean, "Dr. Hart also sheds light on..."
