California Tries to Regulate “Medical” Marijuana

AB 266 Passes Legislature, Ask Governor to Veto It. Medical Marijuana is NOT medicine.

By Roger Morgan, Founder, Take Back America Campaign

It’s tough to regulate a criminal activity.  First of all, “medical marijuana” isn’t medicine. The term was coined to give pot a good name as a first step toward full legalization.  Since federal law was a barrier to the hoax, the pro-pot lobby, financed by Soros and others, hoodwinked California voters into approving marijuana for the chronically ill in 1996.

The marijuana industry has crafted the latest bill.  We urge the governor to veto it. Here is what is missing: Continue reading California Tries to Regulate “Medical” Marijuana

Vape Pens Next Big Push in Marijuana Industry

Vape pens can be rigged for BHO, also know as dabs, the most potent form of marijuana with THC going up to 96%.  Since anyone in California over 18  can get a “medical” marijuana card, vaping has been the way to go for many of our youths on the fast track to addiction and marijuana psychosis.  Continue reading Vape Pens Next Big Push in Marijuana Industry

Was this decision Justified? I think so. Here is why:

1) Marijuana is a psychoactive drug that adversely affects the brain. For anyone under age 25 it can cause permanent, psychical changes that can lead to loss of IQ by as much as 8 points, but as well can lead to mental illness and psychotic breaks in vulnerable individuals that have and are leading to mass murders and suicides. For anyone over 25, it still adversely affects memory, health, cognition and work performance.

2) Marijuana is a fat soluble, fat loving substance that stays in the body and brain for roughly one month, longer than any other drug. The brain is the fattiest organ in the body so the THC (psychoactive ingredient) accumulates there, compounding with each additional joint or ingestion of cannabis. So it doesn’t matter whether marijuana is consumed on the job or not. Impairment lasts much longer, even from occasional use in the evenings or weekends.

3) Studies by the post office indicate that marijuana users have more sick days and cause more accidents, 82% of which harm others. Other studies show that the adverse impacts to memory, motivation and cognition adversely affects work performance.

4) Addicts quite often can’t feed their habit without turning to crime, so they resort to stealing

Bottom line? Most pot smokers are a danger to themselves and others, and not capable at working at optimum levels. Employers, tasked with earning a profit for themselves and/or investors, have a right and obligation to maintain a safe and drug free work place.

Until and if the federal government decides marijuana is safe and effective as a medicine, anyone who chooses to be employed should use legal medicines. If they insist on THC, they can get a prescription for Marinol, a legal drug in pill form.

Marijuana is Bad, Worsens Symptoms of PTSD

Veterans deserve quality care. Today, Congressman Earl Blumenauer (OR-03) plans to offer an amendment to the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, in an effort to make it easier for veterans to access medical marijuana.The Blumenauer Amendment to allow the Veterans Administration to prescribe “medical marijuana” for veterans suffering from PTSD will cause the death and/or destruction of many veterans, and many others at their mercy.

All credible scientific studies indicate that marijuana use makes mental illnesses worse, not better.  Furthermore, Judge Kimberly Mueller recently upheld the Schedule I status of marijuana, meaning  no medical application and potential for abuse.  There are numerous studies showing that today’s highly potent pot causes psychotic breaks leading to violent acts and suicides.
