Pot is dangerous, not funny
-- a doctor tells us why

Fox News, by  Dr. David B. Samadi

Original Article

Posted By:dvc, 1/7/2018 9:17:19 PM

The legalization of marijuana became a hot topic in the past week. First, recreational use of the drug became legal in California at the start of 2018. Next, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he would allow U.S. attorneys to decide whether to enforce federal laws outlawing the use and sale of pot in states that have legalized the drug. Sessions ended an Obama administration policy that discouraged federal prosecutors from enforcing federal marijuana laws in states that allow the drug’s medical or recreational use. It’s not clear yet what impact the attorney general’s action will have. As a physician, my doctoring knowledge

I have seen the rapid deterioration in mental abilities, motivation and ambition that this stuff can do. Happened to a number of classmates in college. Go rapidly to not caring, flunk out and a dead end life.

Keep away from this poison.

I love the worm-turn of Alinski tactics being used against the leftards. They can´t claim the federal government doesn´t need to abide by the constitutional limits set by it and then turn around and claim the fedgov can´t do this. Personally, I can´t find the authorization for ANYTHING like the FBI or most of the DOJ or the BATF or FDA or fill-in-blank-with-one-of-thousands-or-fedgov-depts.

Dr. Samadi is an Iranian Jew, (back when the Shah of Iran allowed the existence of Jews in Iran.) He also appears on Fox news Sunday (or Saturday,) with Dr. Siegel(?). They work well together.

I consider it a demonstration of a lack of talent when comedy writers rely on marijuana situations to get a laugh. (Big Bang Theory did that just once, but I won´t forgive them.)

The consequences are clear, so is the Constitution. There is no authority for the Feds to regulate any substance be it alcohol or MJ.

We saw the sad consequences of the 18th amendment and we see the consequences of the illegal drug trade today.

What the heck do we do???

This whole marijuana thing boggles my mind in this day and time. As the US has fought cigarette smoking for years, to some success, now along comes marijuana, with rising poll numbers and even Congressmen upset that the Attorney General would have the gall to ask that the long-standing federal law against marijuana be enforced, even as more and more states legalize it.

I live in Colorado, where medicinal marijuana was legalized a number of years ago. What a joke that was, as our little town had 5 dispensaries. Doctor So and So would be in town on Saturday to write prescriptions, mainly for the young people who suddenly had back problems and other such issues. A few years later, Colorado went to recreational marijuana. It was amazing how quickly those people with the back problems were healed, as they could now go to the recreational dispensaries. All over the state, one sees the green cross sign on the dispensaries, usually in run-down properties, and the primary clientele is the younger people, who can least afford the expense. And, as this article points out, there are certainly health risks to the use of this drug. Unfortunately, I am certain that within a very few years, pot will be legalized in the entire country. That´s sad.

I asked a diver in Seattle if he got high. He said no the stuff was too powerful, one toke and you were destroyed for hours. Not fun. So guess what? He likes to drink beer once in a while. Just because a drug is legal or illegal doesn´t change people´s choices. Prohibition does not work.

Send it to the Supreme Court and let them turn it into a Federal issue and take away states rights. Just like gay marriage. No pot for you. Roberts can rewrite Federal law as a matter of his judicial opinion. Boom done deal.

Fine - - pot is dangerous to consume.

And so is Drano.

But we shouldn´t give the government the power to ban the consumption of either. No law can cure stupidity or self-destruction - - but Prohibition forces onerous costs - - in money and freedom - - on non-users.

Legalize all drugs - - let the users suffer the consequences - - and allow the rest of us to keep our Constitutional freedom.

Replace ‘marijuana’ with ‘alcohol.’ It reads pretty much the same. The War on Drugs has created a government-criminal codependency that has cost us hundreds of billions of dollars and coutless lives.

Prohibition is clearly unconstitutional, and I would also agree that "it doesn´t work"...HOWEVER, I believe the situation with marijuana in this country today is incredibly dangerous, for all the reasons previously discussed.
#3 asks "What the heck do we do??"
I believe the answer is, as always, peer pressure!! I´m the first to admit that societal pressure was, in large measure, very instrumental in my going cold turkey with cigarettes many decades ago.
Everybody smoked, then hardly anyone smoked...funny how that worked...

That Seattle diver (sic) must be talking about taking dabs or shatter, because I can guarantee you that none of the high-THC (20-30%) flower in Seattle will destroy you “for hours” after “one toke,” and not even after two or three or four tokes.

Yeah, I´d like to see pot smoking, drug using leftists and libertarians go ahead and get all messed up; with the consequence being that any citizen can beat the living hell out of the doper and no charges are filed against the assailant. In other words, smoke dope if you want, but don´t expect the law, which you believe you can flaunt, to protect you, because "doing drugs" is NOT A RIGHT.
Enjoy it, dopeheads. Open season, men!

I really don´t care WHAT anyone else wants to do to destroy their own body---as long as it doesn´t interfere with me, my rights, or my body. And therein lies the rub.
I can´t be productive in the workplace if a colleague answers my simple question 15 minutes later because he´s stoned out of his mind and it takes him that long to process. Or... if some toked out idiot takes 20 minutes to get his foot on the brake and T-bones me due to the delay---his own personal abuse of his body becomes a societal issue and has infringed on MY rights.
The number of car accidents has gone up, up, UP in CO since pot became legalized. Check it out. And then wonder why those figures and that issue have been ignored by our elected officials.
When I returned to the US after 10+ years as an ex pat, I was in disbelief at the political/ social shift in thinking that occurred during my absence: Regarding drugs, it went from "They´re dangerous" to "Well, they´re going to do them anyway, so let´s give them clean needles."
We don´t learn.

Even a wind blown tumbleweed has more going for its self than the man passed out under it! When Carlos Castenada left this World, he took a powerful medicine with him in the form of Peyote and he did not pass that power down to anyone else. The Ultimate Disrespect any human being can do is use Dope of any kind to alter and force his/her Spirit from leaving the body and having to wait to return to a SOBER BODY! This only happens in a dream state or Death! You are warned! Only Man, the most recent from the Creation and who has the most to learn from those Created before him stumbles forward like a small child!

The problem with the ´legalize it´ crowd is that legalization is not government indifference. Rather, it is government involvement down to the individual joint - surely the opposite of what free thinkers and doers are all about?

Yes, prohibition ended but not because government threw up its hands and said they couldn´t keep track of all the illegal hootch. It ended because government decided to mimic Al Capone, not to fight him. See also: gambling.

We have a nanny state tsk-tsking about every vice yet a huge chunk of their income is derived from those vices. It´s not only hypocritical, it´s expensive - not least because one part of government taxes consumption while the other part of government taxes non-users to pay for the care and feeding of users.

I agree that outlawing something does not make people stop doing it. In fact, it has the opposite effect--prohibiting something stirs up the desire to do it (see Rom. 7:7-8).

HOWEVER, laws have a purpose--to help keep society running smoothly.

Personally, I believe this is a slippery slope. After all, if we´re going to go down the road of letting people do what they want with pot, then eventually we will wonder why we bother having any laws at all.

Sadly, legal marijuana is following the same trajectory as legalized gambling. Once a few states adopt it and reap the financial windfall, the others, greedy for the tax revenues, adopt it, ignoring the associated costs. Part of the reason is the tax revenue goes to the state, while local governments and individual end up with most of the costs - increased crime, increased vagrancy and homelessness, impaired driving, and so on.

so to summarize, 1. Kids shouldn´t use pot.. 2. Smoke irritates the lungs.. 3. Pot could increase heart rate (as does exercise), 4. schizophrenia could get worse with pot.

So 90% bigoted propaganda, and 2% common sense that everyone knew already and NOBODY is arguing for.

Legalize it already and cut the BS.

"Pot is a gateway to cocaine, methamphethamine, then opioids, fentanyl and Death. Enjoy man."

This is just nonsense. If you bothered to look at statistics, opioid abuse is skyrocketing in states where marijuana is illegal.. and down in states who have legalized it.

But who cares about facts when bigotry is so much fun, eh?

Just remember how much fun big government is when they need those taxes to finance bloated law enforcement, private prison industries, and all the nice pensions that go with the federal bureaucracies needed to support this nonsense. Enjoy.

Seeking altered states has been a human activity since the first barley was fermented. The issue has always been whether or not, how much or how little, such substances should be illegal or regulated.

Within two years of our Constitution becoming effective this issue reared its ugly head with the Whiskey Rebellion of 1791. It was the first tax on a domestic product by the new federal government. The intention was to generate revenue to pay the Revolutionary War debt, not to regulate consumption or its effects on the population. That aspect of social engineering did not come into play until the Temperance Movement. The Rebellion rose up among the farmers on the western frontier who distilled their surplus grains for their own use and as a barter item.

Two hundred years later we have people on the frontier (illegal growers) producing a popular product for self-use and as a commercial commodity. Although clouded by a century of temperance morality overlaid onto the desire for an altered state, the issue is still basically the government using this desire for revenue generating purposes. As to public safety issues the same laws against driving impaired or causing a public nuisance apply equally to cannabis. In regards to increased traffic accidents I would like to see stats that separate out alcohol combined with marijuana and marijuana alone.

There will always be substances that most can use without serious adverse effects, while with others it has terrible results. There is no cut and dried universal cause and effect. Christ himself said that it is not what man puts into his body that defiles him, but what comes from his heart and mouth. If we support the cause of individual freedom, responsibility must reside with the individual to decide for himself.

I went with my son when he was in his teens of using pot. This young man was a strait A student in school, but when he went on drugs, his grades went down to the bottom of the ladder. And for years my wife and I tried every thing we could to get him out of this. And spent a huge amount of money too. Nothing worked. After school, the one thing that FINALLY got him of of marijuana is the simple fact that a huge amount of companies required and test for drugs. If came back as in your blood, no job. Period. That is what get him off drugs. And as kept him off of them. Today, he is 42yrs, healthy, has married a nice woman, has a good job, and life is good to him. And me, I´m just tickled that he did got of drugs. Although he still thinks that marijuana should be legal so the states could tax it and I tell him NO and he in not going back on it, I´m happy with him. If anyone wants to know how a person becomes on that stuff, just ask me. I spent years watching my own son.

There are a lot of risk factors for causing addiction, but only on cause: USE!

Why? The addictive properties of a substance changes the parts of the brain used to make choices. (Automatic choices, not choice you think through).

It happens relatively quickly with substances like heroin, meth or cocaine, but even nicotine and alcohol changes a person (who is susceptible) over time - Sometimes slowly, sometime quickly, depending on the individually.

Some people become just abusers. About 10% of long term users become addicts.

For all of those who think that total legalization won´t interfere with their own lifes, I disagree. How many people burgle residences of strangers to feed their drug habits??

Are all of you in favor of legalization ready to be burgled, or perhaps raped or murdered, simply because the Constitution doesn´t put prohibition into black and white?

Cigarette smoke poisons store in the lungs, which is why the lungs are first affected by cancer. But Pot toxins store in the body fat. Which is why we are going to see a rise in cancers like breast and others which are near the body fat of the user.

How about a rise in second hand smoke related illness? There is also a documented rise of a serious stomach ailment of users due to the strength of the Pot quality right now. Choose your poisons folks. But choose wisely.

If a parent is trying to keep his or her child off drugs, and the state legalizes them, the state becomes the parent´s enemy.

The desire to destroy the next generation through abortion, sexual anarchy, or drugs is satanic. Those who cooperate with satanic schemes are not only the enemy of godly parents but of God himself.

Conservatives restricting "freedom of choice"?

Many of you come across as so very ignorant about psychoactive substances...while you sip your wine, chug your beers, hoist your shots, or your fancy-named drinks!

Work with veterans who have PTSD and find relief using cannabis and maybe you´ll see differently..

Work with severely ill children who are given CBD´S and feel much better and maybe you´ll see differently.

A judge in Massachusetts on Friday ruled against a lawsuit that questioned the state’s ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, declaring that the weapons were not protected by the Second Amendment. Assault weapons are considered to be military firearms, U.S. District Judge William Young said in his ruling, therefore disqualifying them from being included in a citizen’s right to “bear arms.” Policy makers, rather than the courts, were better suited to decide on the regulation for the weapons, he said. "Other states are equally free to leave them unregulated and available to their law-abiding citizens," Young said in his

In the wake of the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, some are calling for teachers, administrators and other adults at schools to carry guns to help prevent mass shootings. A Utah teacher joined Martha MacCallum on "The Story" to explain why she carries a handgun to school every single day. Kasey Hansen revealed that the idea to arm herself in the classroom began with the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, where 20 children and six adults were killed. "The teachers just huddled their kids in the corner and stood in front of them and hoped for the best. They didn't have any defense for them,

The FBI is investigating people inspired by “kind of an Antifa ideology,” bureau Director Christopher Wray said Thursday. Wray told members of the House Homeland Security Committee that people associated with the so-called anti-fascist or Antifa movement were subject to the FBI probe amid possible violent criminal activity. “While we´re not investigating Antifa as Antifa — that´s an ideology and we don´t investigate ideologies — we are investigating a number of what we would call anarchist-extremist investigations, where we have properly predicated subjects of people who are motivated to commit violent criminal activity on kind of an Antifa ideology,” he told the

The legalization of marijuana became a hot topic in the past week. First, recreational use of the drug became legal in California at the start of 2018. Next, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he would allow U.S. attorneys to decide whether to enforce federal laws outlawing the use and sale of pot in states that have legalized the drug. Sessions ended an Obama administration policy that discouraged federal prosecutors from enforcing federal marijuana laws in states that allow the drug’s medical or recreational use. It’s not clear yet what impact the attorney general’s action will have. As a physician, my doctoring knowledge

CIA Director Mike Pompeo was pressed for his views on homosexuality Thursday during his confirmation hearing to be secretary of state.Pompeo, a former Kansas congressman, said he would treat State Department employees fairly regardless of their sexual orientation if he´s confirmed, but did not directly answer questions from Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., about whether he views homosexuality as a perversion. "When I was a politician, I had a very clear view on whether it was appropriate for two same-sex persons to marry. I stand by that position," Pompeo said. He added, "I believe it´s the case we have married gay

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said Wednesday that she is concerned President Trump acts as though he is "above the law." Albright, who served under Bill Clinton, commented in her new book, "Fascism: A Warning," that Trump is seemingly the least democratic commander-in-chief she has seen. She said on "The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino" that Trump seems to lack respect for traditional democracy, particularly the First Amendment. "I am a great believer in Freedom of the Press. I think it´s very important. I think it´s exceptionally important for there to be discussions -- civil, good discussions," she said.

Here’s an idea that wouldn’t survive the laughter in most U.S. communities. But this is California and more specifically, Los Angeles. So, local government is moving ahead with a plan to move some of the county’s exploding homeless populations off the streets and — wait for it — into your backyard. The idea is to build little homes or large huts, depending on your scale, in the backyard of willing homeowners. A kind of YIMBY — Yes In My Backyard. According to the county’s pilot program, rents to homeowners would be covered by government low-income housing vouchers with homeless tenants

Former FBI Director James Comey blasts President Donald Trump as unethical and ´untethered to truth´ and calls his leadership of the country ´ego driven and about personal loyalty´ in a forthcoming book. Comey reveals new details about his interactions with Trump and his own decision-making in handling the Hillary Clinton email investigation before the 2016 election. He casts Trump as a mafia boss-like figure who sought to blur the line between law enforcement and politics and tried to pressure him regarding his investigation into Russian election interference. The book adheres closely to Comey´s public testimony and written statements about his contacts with the

Former CIA Director John Brennan on Friday went after President Trump over his attacks on former FBI Director James Comey, tweeting that Trump’s “kakistocracy is collapsing after its lamentable journey.” “As the greatest Nation history has known, we have the opportunity to emerge from this nightmare stronger & more committed to ensuring a better life for all Americans, including those you have so tragically deceived,” Brennan tweeted at Trump. (Snip) A kakistocracy is a form of government in which the worst persons are in power. Brennan has been a regular critic of Trump, warning last month that lawmakers who protect him will

An Indian reservation along one of the most perilous sections of the Mexican border won’t allow National Guard troops to enter its land, which is a notorious smuggling corridor determined by the U.S. government to be a “High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA).” Sources inside the U.S. Border Patrol and other law enforcement agencies working along the Arizona-Mexico border tell Judicial Watch that the tribe, Tohono O’odham Nation, has banned National Guard troops deployed by President Donald Trump to help crack down on a crisis of drug smuggling and illegal crossings along the 2,000-mile southern border. “They told us they

Fired FBI Director James Comey’s new “tell all” book is a dream come true for President Donald Trump’s opponents and a hatchet job on the president. It’s important for every fair-minded person to remember that just because Comey makes a charge, he is not speaking gospel truth – despite his inflated sense of virtue and self-importance. Just about anyone who’s ever been fired fancies “getting even” with the boss. Comey’s new book does that in spades, according to excerpts leaked to the media Thursday. In the process, it lowers the reputation of both the FBI and Comey, undermines the presidency and hurts

President Trump on Friday pardoned Scooter Libby, the former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney who was ensnared in what was known as the “Valerie Plame affair” during the Bush administration. “I don’t know Mr. Libby,” Trump said in a statement. “But for years I have heard that he has been treated unfairly. Hopefully, this full pardon will help rectify a very sad portion of his life." Libby told Fox News in a brief phone call after Trump´s announcement he is “pleased” his innocence “has been recognized.” Libby, who served as Cheney´s chief of staff, was convicted in 2007 of perjury, obstruction of

Speaker Paul Ryan said he won’t leave his post early, despite early speculation that Republicans may want a new speaker in the next few months, and told reporters that most GOP lawmakers want him to remain in his post until he retires in January because nobody can top his fundraising prowess. “I have shattered every fundraising record any speaker has ever set,” Ryan said in response to reports that some lawmakers want a swift exit. Ryan, R-Wis., said those urging him to leave represent only “a small group” of Republicans and that most want the current leadership team to remain

President Donald Trump is poised to pardon Scooter J. Libby, the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, according to sources familiar with the president’s thinking. The president has already signed off on the pardon, which is something he has been considering for several months, sources told ABC News. The move would mark another controversial pardon for Trump and could raise questions as an increasing number of the president’s political allies have landed themselves in legal jeopardy. The White House has repeatedly said that no pardons are currently on the table for people caught up in the Russia investigation

White House officials are concerned that the president´s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, had taped recordings that federal investigators may have gotten their hands on during the raid on his hotel and home. Cohen, who served for a decade at the Trump Organization, was known to tape conversations with associates to use as leverage, and even had Trump hear some of his recordings. It was a practice the president was aware of. ´We heard he had some proclivity to make tapes,´ said one Trump adviser to the Washington Post, who spoke about the ongoing investigation. ´Now we are wondering, who did he tape?

During a recent lunch hour, I was alone on the rooftop of the largest Chick-fil-A in the world. The restaurant, on Fulton Street, is the company’s fourth in Manhattan, and it opened last month to the kind of slick, corporate-friendly fanfare that can only greet a new chain. The first hundred customers had participated in a scavenger hunt around the financial district. At an awards ceremony, the management honored them with a year’s supply of free chicken sandwiches and waffle fries. There were no such prizes on offer when I visited, but from the fifth-floor terrace—on the top floor of
