    My “regular” drugs have negative interactions with respectively: 160 other drugs, 240 other drugs, and over 400 other drugs. Marijuana is more effective than any of the other three, and interacts negatively with only ONE other drug, demerol.(and that’s only a caution for over sedation).


    It’s time to write Congress and demand they take Marijuana OFF of Schedule I, as in no way does it belong there. BTW, there are tons of OTC compounds out there, like acetimenaphin, aspirin, and cold meds that indeed CAN kill you, and even lead to severe addictions. Then there’s tobacco.

    Gads, no movie reference? No Cheech and Chong? What’s up, Holbert?

    The last line in bunches of drugs listed in the PDR is “and possibly death” (enjoy your next prescription!).

    Would you prefer they snort coke, like the more ambitious Wall Street execs and Trey Radel, or perhaps Oxycodone like Rush Limbaugh?

    I’ve lived next door to a group of stoners, and an alcoholic. While the stoners were borish, at least they never passed out in the hallway before soiling themselves….. twice.

    It always amazes me how people who are afraid of eating genetically modified food will throw themselves off the cliff by ingesting a broad array of powerful drugs cooked up in somebodies basement. People are nuts.

    I believe the invention of the “DNA Replicator” was dreamed up while the inventor was smoking pot. You’re such a predictable idiot.

    Hey Kiddo, lots of great music and art were created by people high on LSD and cocaine too!
    Before you call people idiots, you should think first.

    Actually, President Obama has the authority under the Controlled Substances Act, now, to take Marijuana off of schedule 1. No need for Congress. I suggest you write the Whitehouse, instead.

    I really don’t care about name calling in either direction. I was pointing out where the ability to make the change lies. Additionally, the last 3 presidents have smoked the substance, and yet made it to that esteemed office. It’s time to stop the petty bickering and do what is right.

    I am not a “Dem,” and I must say, Citation, please. This Johns Hopkins study saw no cognitive decline related to marijuana use.

    Additionally, regardless of your personal experience, our last 3 presidents all smoked it, and made it to the highest office in the land.

    Rad-ish: back in 66-67 in ’Nam, we who used the occasional grass PROVED that in mortar attacks, and combat situations, “stoners” survived, while the drunks died, time and again.


    My point is that marijuana has been used for thousands of years as a MEDICINE, AND IT WORKS. It is in fact far more effective for many conditions than synthetic drugs from a lab.


    While intoxication for recreational use, just like with alcohol, can and should have consequences, to the same degree, marijuana is simply safer. It is impossible to overdose on MJ, but you CAN O.D. and die on booze! With the stronger varieties available today, yes, caution should be called for as to degree of intoxication, and function.


    It’s 50 years plus past time to burn all copies of “Reefer Madness”, and all the laws that used it as rationale for totally irrational conclusions, phony studies, and laws…

    I’m assuming you meant “boorish”.

    Currently MJ is responsible for many deaths, and a lot of suffering.

    Those deaths are caused by making MJ illegal and so expensive, so that very evil people can make tons of money off it, to buy guns and power, and people to do their bidding.

    I don’t use MJ. I don’t use alcohol, so I have no interest in this from that standpoint. But making alcohol illegal brought this country the mobsters. Making MJ illegal has funded the drug lords.

    When you try something for a lot of years and it doesn’t work, it is time to try something else.
