Comment: Chronic use for years

(See in situ)


Chronic use for years

may not be healthy for most people.

Even if that is the case it's not a valid reason for
maintaining the prohibitionist system we have now.

Including that part of it that Adam Kokesh has run into -
otherwise legal possession of a firearm magically
becomes a felony if he (or you, or anyone) also possesses
or uses *any* controlled substance - even if the substance
in question is legal under state law.

Are we going to see Rand in the forefront of tackling that
injustice? Would be nice, but I'm not holding my breath.

And what about medical cannabis applications? If Rand goes
back to Israel maybe he could time out from sucking up to
the rabid Zionists and work in a visit to Tikkun Olam
which has been researching this since the 1960's:

Hey Rand, maybe you could even talk to some Palestinians while you're at it.

And give a read to this recent UC San Diego study that concludes:

"The classification of marijuana as a Schedule I drug as well as the continuing controversy as to whether or not cannabis is of medical value [59] are obstacles to medical progress in this area. Based on evidence currently available the Schedule I classification is not tenable; it is not accurate that cannabis has no medical value, or that information on safety is lacking. It is true cannabis has some abuse potential, but its profile more closely resembles drugs in Schedule III (where codeine and dronabinol are listed). The continuing conflict between scientific evidence and political ideology will hopefully be reconciled in a judicious manner.."
