 President Ronald Reagan, at the urging of then Vice President George Bush, appointed Carlton Turner as the White House Drug (czar) Advisor in 1981.

    At conventions (1981-1986) of pharmaceutical companies and their lobbyist the American Chemical Manufacturers, Turner promised to continue the research ban on the 400 chemical compounds of cannabis.

    Bush managed to continue to direct this effort, simply by not allowing any grants for private or public research with a positive implication to be issued by NIDA or NIH, or approved any recent FDA applications unless they pursued negative results. As of this writing (July 1998) President Clinton’s policy has remained the same.

Most of the anti-marijuana literature we have examined does not cite as much as one single source for us to review. Others only refer to DEA or NIDA. The few studies we have been able to track down usually end up being anecdotal case histories, artificial groupings of data, or otherwise lacking controls and never replicated.

    Reports of breast enlargement, obesity, addiction, and the like all remain unsubstantiated, and are given little credence by the scientific community. Other reports, like the temporary reduction in sperm count, are statistically insignificant to the general public, yet get blown far out of proportion when presented by the media. Still others, like the handful of throat tumors in the Sacramento area and the high rate of injuries reported in a Baltimore trauma unit are isolated clusters that run contrary to all other statistics and have never been replicated.

    The spurious results of Heath, Nahas, and the pregnant mice and monkey studies at Temple University and UC Davis (where they injected mice with synthetic third-cousin analogues of THC) are now discredited in the body of scientific and medical literature.

    Though these studies are not used in scientific discourse, mountains of DEA and pharmaceutical company-sponsored literature about the long-term possible effects of these metabolites on the brain and reproduction still goes to parent groups as if they were brand new studies. This disinformation is still very much alive in U.S. government, DEA, DARE, and PDFA reports.

Stupid Stoners help elect Mitt Romney and Destroy America !!

 

** Pollsters: Pro-pot Libertarian Gary Johnson could hurt Obama in Colorado **

 

Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson will make a campaign stop on the University of Colorado campus on Monday night, and pollsters say the third-party candidate with a pro-pot agenda could siphon votes away from President Barack Obama in his razor-close race against Mitt Romney in this battleground state.

Vote YES on A64, it legalizes marijuana for adult recreational use.  After it passes the state will develop a regulatory framework just like the one used with medical marijuana that will fill the states tax coffers.  Which is better than filling the black market's coffers.

 @Faedy Yeah you are right.  This forum is lame.  It's just legalizers screaming at each other.

The Hype: More Harmful Than Tobacco

    According to the American Lung Association, cigarettes and tobacco smoking related diseases kill more than 430,000 Americans every year. Fifty million Americans smoke, and 3,000 teens start each day.

    The Berkeley carcinogenic tar studies of the late 1970s concluded that “marijuana is one-and-a-half times more carcinogenic than tobacco.”

The Fact: Not One Documented Case of Cancer

    There are lung irritants involved in any smoke. Cannabis smoke causes mild irritation to the large airways of the lungs. Symptoms disappear when smoking is discontinued.

    However, unlike tobacco smoke, cannabis smoke does not cause any changes in the small airways, the area where tobacco smoke causes long term and permanent damage. Additionally, a tobacco smoker will smoke 20 to 60 cigarettes a day, while a heavy marijuana smoker may smoke five to seven joints a day, even less when potent high-quality flower tops are available.

    While tens of millions of Americans smoke pot regularly, cannabis has never caused a known case of lung cancer as of December 1997, according to America’s foremost lung expert, Dr. Donald Tashkin of UCLA. He considers the biggest health risk to the lungs would be a person smoking 16 or more “large” spliffs a day of leaf/bud because of the hypoxia of too much smoke and not enough oxygen.

    Tashkin feels there is no danger for anyone to worry about potentiating emphysema “in any way” by the use of marijuana—totally the opposite of tobacco.

    Cannabis is a complex, highly evolved plant. There are some 400 compounds in its smoke. Of these, 60 are presently known to have therapeutic value.

    Cannabis may also be eaten, entirely avoiding the irritating effects of smoke. However, four times more of the active ingredients of smoked cannabis are absorbed by the human body than when the same amount is eaten. And the prohibition inflated price of black market cannabis, combined with harsh penalties for cultivation, prevent most persons from being able to afford the luxury of a less efficient, though healthier, means of ingestion.

Lab Studies Fail to Reflect the Real World

    Studies have proven that many of the carcinogens in cannabis can be removed by using a water pipe system. Our government omitted this information and its significance when speaking to the press. At the same time politicians outlawed the sale of water pipes, labeling them “drug paraphernalia.”

 @IcePick "Vote YES on A64, it legalizes marijuana for adult recreational use"

 

A64 does NOT legalize ANY marijuana for ANY ADULT < 21 yrs. old.

 

 @IcePick " After it passes the state will develop a regulatory framework"

 

A64 authors admit that it was so poorly written that the State is not obligated, much less forced, to grant a single retail license.

 

 @IcePick "just like the one used with medical marijuana"

 

So you finally admit it is NOT regulated "like alcohol".

 

 @IcePick "that will fill the states tax coffers"

 

The REGULATORS at DOR have SPENT MORE $$ than they've collected from MMJ.

 

 @IcePick  "Which is better than filling the black market's coffers."

 

So you admit that Dispensaries ARE the "black market", eh?

 @kevin_hunt  Whatever Kevin.  You defend A64 at all cost with your "marijuana is a cool party drug, get used to it" attitude, adding little logic to the discussions and I'm tired of it. You break the law using marijuana recreationally and excuse it but have no sympathy for others that would continue to be treated like criminals with A64, and have no sympathy for medical marijuana patients or caregivers that would be harmed by this amendment, and dismiss the many valid reasons to oppose A64.  Screw you buddy.  If you want to get high because you think it's cool then go right ahead, I won't object, but I will fucking object to anyone trying to re-brand a medicine I take seriously like fucking alcohol.

 @orson " You break the law using marijuana recreationally"

 

When did I ever say that I do that?  Your buddy the Donkey says that I don't use or grow marijuana and am not even "cool enough" to know any illegal growers.

 

" I'm tired of it" 

 

Too bad.  As your buddy the Donkey says "You can choose to ignore me".

 

"Screw you buddy. "

 

Insults don't hurt my feelings. Have you noticed I refrain from using insults on you?  You need to get your anger under control.

 

Mel Sembler loves the infighting among the legalizers in Colorado.  It's the divide and conquer theory in action.

    Since adopting a policy of tolerance and non-prosecution of cannabis/hashish smokers (it is available in cafes and bars) and rehabilitation and diversion programs for hard drug users, Holland has seen a substantial reduction in cannabis consumption among teenagers3 and a 33% drop in the number of heroin addicts. The strategy of separating cannabis sales from hard drug dealers by bringing pot above-ground has been quite successful. (L.A. Times, August, 1989) In 1998, despite constant pressure from the U.S. government and the DEA, the Dutch government has totally refused to recriminalize marijuana!

    3. “ ‘Collective Conscience’ Breeds Dutch Tolerance” Oregonian, 1989. See appendix of the paper version of this book.

 @kevin_hunt Remember, A64 does NOT legalize marijuana.

 

A64 is a continuation of CRIMINAL PROHIBITION against marijuana users and growers.

 

A64 is a FRAUD promoted by Lying Liars for Idiots and Fools ... like you Kevin.

@DonkeyHotay

    More than 100 years have passed since the 1894 British Raj commission study of hashish smokers in India reported cannabis use was harmless and even helpful. Numerous studies since have all agreed: The most prominent being Siler, LaGuardia, Nixon’s Shafer Commission, Canada’s LeDain Commission, and the California Research Advisory Commission.

    Concurrently, American presidents have praised hemp, the USDA amassed volumes of data showing its value as a natural resource, and in 1942 the Roosevelt administration even made Hemp for Victory, a film glorifying our patriotic hemp farmers. That same year, Germany produced The Humorous Hemp Primer, a comic book, written in rhyme, extolling hemp’s virtues. (See appendix I of the paper version of this book.)

    Yet even the humane use of hemp for medicine is now denied. Asked in late 1989 about the DEA’s failure to implement his decision quoted above, Judge Young responded that administrator John Lawn was being given time to comply.

    More than a year after that ruling, Lawn officially refused to reschedule cannabis, again classing it as a Schedule I “dangerous” drug that is not even allowed to be used as medicine.

    Decrying this needless suffering of helpless Americans, the National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws (NORML) and the Family Council on Drug Awareness quickly demanded Lawn’s resignation. His successors, Bonner, and now Constantine, retain the same policy.

    What hypocrisy allows public officials to scoff at the facts and deny the truth? How do they rationalize their atrocities? How? They invent their own experts.

 I find it interesting that the old Donkey Hotay uses "HTH", too.

Now we need to establish a motive.  What is their beef with A64?  Are they a legalizer or stealth prohibitionist?

 @IcePick A64 is a Fraud and a Sham that would not reduce a single arrest for marijuana.

 

That you ignore the many reasons to not put this turd in the Colorado Constitution does not mean they don't exist.

 

Stay ignorant -- it is your best skill ... that you prove over and over nearly every time you post.
