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...

#6:

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.

Wrecking NATO
American Thinker, by Shoshana Bryen    Original Article
Posted By: dvc- 7/11/2018 11:13:44     Post Reply
The Washington Post headline blared, "Trump is bent on wrecking NATO. Prepare for catastrophe." The Post fears that President Trump´s diplomacy will benefit Vladimir Putin to the detriment of American and European interests. European Council president Donald Tusk sniped, "Dear America, appreciate your allies. After all, you don´t have that many." The NATO countries are, indeed, among America´s closest allies, but some of them appear more interested in oil, natural gas, and trade with Iran than in the Fulda Gap. Some of our "closest allies" have been working overtime to undermine America. If Mr. Trump is irritated with them, there

An activist author ignited a social media firestorm on Thursday after saying she was left “very confused” seeing a black man with a pro-NRA and Tea Party bumper-sticker on his car. Kimberley Johnson, a feminist contributor to HuffPost and the spokeswoman for the national advocacy group We Are Woman, was slammed for questioning why a black person would not embrace progressive politics. “Out on the road the other day I saw an affluent black man driving a BMW with two bumper-stickers. One was pro-NRA and the other one was a Tea Party sticker that read, ‘Don´t tread on me,’” she

Crews made major progress on the blaze, as of Thursday evening at 6:30 the fire was reportedly 35 percent contained. There were no new evacuation or pre-evacuation orders issued Wednesday night; all existing statuses remain the same. Evacuation maps can be found here. The Hayman Fire, the state´s largest-ever fire, burned 137,760 acres in the summer of 2002. Crews are hopeful that fire activity will be less than

Connecticut assault victim gets 18

A Connecticut man who was assaulted by three juveniles while at work has been sentenced to prison for stabbing one of the attackers. The Connecticut Post reports 21-year-old Jeffrey Sumpter of Bridgeport received 18 months in jail Monday at a Stamford courthouse. The paper reported that Sumpter — who was convicted of felony first-degree assault — also will have to spend three years following his release on probation. If he breaks the law during that time, Sumpter could be made to serve all or part of a 42-month prison sentence. Sumpter was working at a Dunkin’ Donuts in Norwalk last

COSTILLA COUNTY, Colo. -- The Spring Fire burning in southern Colorado continued to explode in size as acreage reached 60,710 acres as of Monday evening, according to officials in San Luis Valley. 715 people are fighting the fire, which is 5 percent contained. Crews are dealing with hot, dry and windy weather conditions. A quick time lapse of the #SpringFire picking up this afternoon at the top of La Veta Pass due to increasing winds.

Wind and Solar Require Massive Subsidies

It is difficult to fully itemize the subsidies provided for wind and solar energy. Many subsidies are hidden in the tax code or are an indirect consequence of the privileged treatment given these sources of electricity. A fundamental difference between wind and solar and traditional energy sources is that wind and solar are intermittent and erratic. The weather affects both wind and cloud cover. The sun sets every night, turning off solar generation, often just when demand peaks. In winter, solar generation drops -- dramatically in areas with heavy winter cloud cover. Wind and solar are dumb electricity. It would

July Fourth is a moment for all of us to reflect on America and what it means – and that’s particularly true this year, as the holiday comes right after a week in politics that revealed the great challenges America’s system of government is facing. The retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy – and the left’s reaction to it – should give us all pause this Independence Day. I studied America’s system of government years ago when I was an undergraduate at Oxford University. I mention that not to try and impress you with my intellectual prowess, but for

James E. Hansen wiped sweat from his brow. Outside it was a record-high 98 degrees on June 23, 1988, as the NASA scientist testified before the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources during a prolonged heat wave, which he decided to cast as a climate event of cosmic significance. He expressed to the senators his “high degree of confidence” in “a cause-and-effect relationship between the greenhouse effect and observed warming.” With that testimony and an accompanying paper in the Journal of Geophysical Research, Mr. Hansen lit the bonfire of the greenhouse vanities, igniting a world-wide debate that continues today

The number-one challenge of our times is to separate the wheat from the chaff. To assist in this task, we are blessed with more information than ever before – but we are also simultaneously burdened with more misinformation than any prior generation has ever had to deal with. We look back and wonder how trusting citizens were so easily victimized by snake oil salesmen, but today, in the golden age of cons, we are being duped on a daily basis. As a representative matter (and a national issue of great significance), let´s look at what´s happening with industrial wind energy.

This week has shown how serious and determined the Trump-Pence team is about launching America into a new era of leadership in space – and ensuring our dominance there for generations to come. Consider President Trump’s announcement at the National Space Policy Council meeting on Monday that the Department of Defense will create a U.S. Space Force as the sixth branch of our military. Couple this with the announcement of Space Policy Directive-3, which will create the world’s first official system for extraterrestrial traffic management, along with the continued effort by the Department of Commerce to streamline

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person. The effort is an example of public-relations ´astroturfing,´ a technique meant to simulate genuine grassroots support for an idea or cause.

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump. In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

Democratic Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen on Monday called for the “military folks” to save America from President Donald Trump after Trump’s much-criticized press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Where are our military folks? The Commander in Chief is in the hands of our enemy!” Cohen wrote on Twitter, using language suggestive of a military coup. (Tweet) Cohen later said that he was in no way calling for a coup. “No coup called for,” he wrote, claiming it unlikely that someone would call for a coup on Twitter. Cohen’s bizarre tweet was similar to one from former Obama CIA Director

Chicago may soon become the largest municipality in the U.S. to test a universal basic income program. Chicago alderman Ameya Pawar recently proposed legislation that would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend -- no questions asked. The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

The man who co-wrote “The Art of the Deal” said Sunday he believes President Trump’s faculties are diminishing — and that he feels obligated to sound the alarm. “We are in a true emergency,” Tony Schwartz said on CNN Sunday. “And the accelerated rate at which his breakdown or decompensation is occurring is cause for us, and certainly for me, to come on to TV more often, to tweet more often.” Schwartz told CNN’s Brian Stelter that he felt comfortable making that assessment because he had “spent an enormous time with [Trump] over a period of 18 months.”(snip)Stelter pointed out that Schwartz

When Presidents Trump and Vladimir Putin ended their joint press conference in Helsinki, the punditocracy predictably swarmed all over it like ants around a pile of crumbs. Was Trump winking at Putin? Did he really say he believes Putin more than he believes Robert Mueller about whether Russia interfered in the 2016 election? Former Gus Hall enthusiast John Brennan, off his meds again, tweeted that the presser was “treasonous.” Professional chatterer Anderson Cooper said it was “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit.” Every phrase, every gesture of the event will be picked

Whether Democrats realize it or not, the names being tossed as potential 2020 challengers to President Trump are weak. It’s milquetoast. All far too left for the American voter, and all with rigid regional appeal. Who knows who Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is outside of New Jersey? The same could be said for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) doesn’t resonate outside of the Boston suburbs. And Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), well, she’s working hard to boost her profile, but she’s running aground with the Bernie crowd. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) could run again, but his age—and the

President Donald Trump’s comments during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday were “treasonous,” former CIA Director John Brennan asserted. “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors,’” Brennan, a vocal Trump critic, wrote on Twitter. “It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???” Trump and Putin fielded questions from reporters at a joint summit in Helsinki following a one-on-one meeting earlier in the day. Trump praised Putin during

A 63-year-old father of 43 children was found beaten to death Sunday afternoon in his home on Chicago´s West Side. The body of John Hearring -- known as Nicholas -- was discovered with head trauma in his upstairs apartment in the 1000-block of North Leamington Avenue in the South Austin neighborhood. Multiple family members confirmed that he had 43 children. Hearring was a long-time resident there and well-known in the neighborhood. "He was the nicest man you´d ever want to meet. I don´t get it. All this killing is so senseless and now they are targeting the elderly," said Gwen Bridgeforth, his daughter-in-law.
