Patrick Kennedy Urges
Congress Not to Legalize
‘Addictive’ Marijuana Industry

PJ Media, by Nicholas Ballasy

WASHINGTON – Former Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) urged Congress not to legalize marijuana, breaking with other members of his party such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). Schumer announced today for the 4/20 cannabis holiday his plan to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, writing that he had evolved on the issue along with the electorate. Kennedy argued lawmakers should oppose legalization of marijuana, in part because it would worsen the crisis of addiction in America. “The biggest issue here is denial in our lives, those of us who come from homes with alcoholism and addiction, who live with it in our

Comments:
What about hard drugs, Mr. Substance Abuser? Patrick Kennedy´s speciality was pharmaceuticals that kind of grabbed him by the boo boo, numbed him from the toes up, and made his car hard to pilot at 0300. This is Patrick´s NA class talking through him. I never listened to him before--not about to start now.

As for his present concern, that horse has already left the barn.

Good for him. I’ve heard him speak before about addiction. Can’t blame him for the sins of his family if he’s trying to be change and be different.

Too late - the states are salivating for the "free" money from legal dope sales taxes. They´ll conveniently ignore the costs to local law enforcement, the increased crime, and the deaths from impaired drivers.

He would know given his history. He would also know the toll people take from using it and from dealing with people to take drugs.

Sick of our ´leaders´ pandering to drug addicts to win votes, and seeing a new tax revenue stream. How many get big-money donations?

Would never guess a Kennedy would speak out against drug abuse.

Traffic fatalities linked to marijuana are up sharply in Colorado. Teens who smoked pot by age 14 performed worse by age 20 on cognitive tests. They also had poor short-term memory and were likely to drop out of school. Marijuana Has Proven to Be a Gateway Drug. On top of all that, there is a growing problem of grown pot smoking children well into their 30´s who won´t move out of the basement and give their parents their life back.

Half of me applauds Mr. Kennedy for speaking out on this.

The other half of me remembers when, under the influence of God knows what, he slammed his auto into some barriers by the Capitol building at 0300, then stumbled out of the car telling the cops, "Hey, I gotta get to the floor and vote! You can´t impede me! It´s in the Constitution!"

As an alcoholic with 30 years in recovery I applaud Kennedy. He does know what he’s talking about.

I used marijuana as a teen in the late 60’s/early 70’s and I knew people in college who smoked their first joint before getting out of bed in the morning. None of them ever amounted to anything, never held a steady job and never got married or had kids (too much responsibility). Some of them are still using now when they are pushing 70. So much potential up in smoke.

I think the left would like nothing better than to have a country full of complient listless potheads - easy to control and easy to fool.

It´s none of the government´s business whether or not someone is an alcoholic, drug addict, or chocoholic.

We all have a right to make our own personal choices - - and giving the government the right to "ban" any substance whatsoever is the fast road to serfdom.

I´m always amazed and disappointed at how otherwise intelligent posters here are so ready to surrender their freedom to government Ingestion Panels - - and mine as well.

I´m a baby boomer and I came of age in the druggie generation. I never did them. I saw too many people act like idiots while high to ever even think of smoking weed. That said, I think almost all of mankind is addicted to something. It may be as harmful as meth or as mild as caffeine. Banning weed hasn´t worked, but I don´t have any answers.

Banning addictive substances does work. Alcohol consumption decreased during prohibition. We don´t need another addictive, anti-social product on the market. I´m with Kennedy on this.

#19, I think your facts are not right.

Per nation Bureau of Economic Research:
We find that alcohol consumption fell sharply at the beginning of Prohibition, to approximately 30 percent of its pre-Prohibition level. During the next several years, however, alcohol consumption increased sharply, to about 60-70 percent of its pre-prohibition level. The level of consumption was virtually the same immediately after Prohibition as during the latter part of Prohibition

Too late, Patrick. In Colorado, the federal drug war is already lost politically. Repeal of the state statute is still possible, but, only after we get a determined pubbie governor this fall who demands a repeal bill from the legislature next year.

Shame on Gov. Hickenlooper (yes, he´s a dim) for letting this happen in the first place.

#20, your claim #19 is wrong, then proceed to prove him right?
Even though Prohibition was not a ban on Alcohol, or consumption of it, it caused a significant reduction in alcohol consumption.
The purpose of Prohibition was to protect dry states from smugglers from wet states. Nearly dry states, like Alaska, still deal with that problem today.

In the 20th century, Congress recognized that it didn´t have the power under the Constitution to ban alcohol. So the 18th Amendment was passed (and later repealed by the 21st). Our current crop of Congresscritters lacks that respect for the Constitution with respect to drug laws.

Nice libertarian ideas there, #16, but as usual, the libertarians don´t think it through far enought to see the end results, just love the "leave me alone" idea - which is VERY appealing.

The problem is that these drugs destroy huge swaths of the young people and that destroys the country.

Libertarians, short sighted, pie in the sky types, who never worry about the real outcomese, just "let me be free". I was very much on board with libertarianism for some time, until I saw where that led to.

Freedom, yes, but there are some things so destructive, drugs is one of them, that they must be controlled, and there are huge problems with that, too, I understand.

After watching two young men circle the drain and destroy their lives with marijuana, I vowed to never try it and never support it.

Marijuana today is not the same as in the 60s, as some have already pointed. It IS addictive now, and is causing big problems. I don’t want someone using marijuana driving on the roads, etc. That’s where the government appropriately come in.

Maybe I´m just a shiny-eyed, pie-in-the-sky libertarian, but I continue to believe it´s NOT the government´s business, to regulate what ADULTS can ingest.

Are people going to make bad choices? YES! People have made bad choices for all of recorded history.

Are people going to waste their lives? YES! (Is debilitating alcoholism somehow morally superior to debilitating pot-headedness? If not... why the double standard?)

I happen to believe that the "forbidden fruit" aspect of reefer use tends to be as much an incentive to try it, as a disincentive. And the hand-wringing alarm about "hallucinations" and such? Yeah... THAT is going to stop kids from trying it! (/sarcasm)

Or - let´s go the "big brother" way and illegalize alcohol, tobacco, big cups of soda pop, fast food, twinkies, red meat, .......

Part Dos: Legalization of drugs is not just an either/or equation. There is the issue of addictive personalities. Addictive personalities will use drugs or whatever substance whether it is legal or not. Non-addictive personalities can watch people fry their brains all around them and not be tempted to use the stuff. The libertarian view is that it should all be legal due to freedoms. The caveat is that it costs everybody money for police, EMS, emergency room, hospital treatment and doctors whether they use drugs or not. Same with obese people who abuse food, they cost us all because they can´t control their appetites. The big question is whether government is more qualified to control addictive use or should it be up to their families, friends, etc. Again, another variable, are families willing and able to do it or is it easier to pass it off on the government, thus costing the rest of us?

Maybe I´m just a shiny-eyed, pie-in-the-sky libertarian, but I continue to believe it´s NOT the government´s business, to regulate what ADULTS can ingest.

I could almost go along with this sentiment, except for one huge problem. It is a known fact that marijuana "stays in the system," or is in the body in detectible quantities for about six weeks.

If there were an unbreakable condition that every one who ingests marijuana absolutely will not drive until the drug is completely out of their system, then I would say "it is their own business" and leave them alone.

But a quick look at the increase of traffic fatalities in Colorado since legalization shows that many people drive while intoxicated on marijuana.

It sort of correlates with your right to swing your fist ends before it hits my nose.

Hey, if it was just about adults over the age of 25, I´d say go ahead on, legalize it, let adults attenuate their lives, anesthetize themselves, have a laugh and REALLY enjoy music.
But,the fact of the matter is that the human brain is not fully developed until age 25, especially in those brain regions that involve judgement. The auto insurance companies know this and the left knows it in spades!
Research shows that MJ impairs the health and development of growing young brains and, yes the MJ today is SUPER strong and will screw you up far more. It´s not your hippie grandfather´s rather mild MJ.
With increased legalization and importantly, societal acceptance of MJ, the youth will get increased access to this insidious substance. An American Tragedy in the making. At minimum let´s let the dummies in Colorado play out their legalization drama a few more years before we doom the rest of the country to this. And let´s learn now and study with lots of research on Colorado and its mistake, one sad laboratory of our nation.

One of the worst features of both wind and solar energy is that they are terrible for the environment.

"Several eastern US states are planning major investments in offshore wind. Wind turbines are touted as clean, green, and economically sound. But experience from around the world shows that offshore wind systems are both expensive and at high risk for early system degradation.

FORT LAUDERDALE — A safe prediction about the 2018 election in Florida is that Gov. Rick Scott will get trounced in Broward County for a third time. The deepest blue county in the state soundly rejected Scott in both of his races for governor in 2010 and 2014. But Scott won both races, and a big reason why is that Broward underperforms in midterm elections as Democrats vote with their backsides and stay home. Now Scott is a Republican U.S. Senate candidate, and Broward has been transformed by the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school shooting in February. But whether the tragedy changes the

Well, it seems the Democratic Party’s fundraising slump continues, even as Election Day draws closer. Polling shows that Democratic enthusiasm has stalled, though last Tuesday’s primaries showed the far left dominated, booting the more centrist candidates the establishment backed. While a lot of things should be going for the Democrats, the opposing party in the White House, history favoring the minority party in an off-year election, and the Left’s unhinged hatred for Trump, that intensity hasn’t translated into filling the war chest for the Democratic National Committee. They just had their worst fundraising month (April) in a midterm year since

That’s the question the Associated Press asks, following the school shootings in Santa Fe: “School shooting may not bring change to gun-loving Texas.” "Guns are so hard-wired into Texas culture that last week’s deadly rampage at Santa Fe High School is considered unlikely to result in any significant restrictions on access to weapons in the Lone Star State" (Snip). What’s interesting is that the AP never hints at what “gun restrictions” the State of Texas ought to adopt. Indeed, it becomes obvious that the AP reporter, speaking for liberals and the mainstream of the Democratic Party, doesn’t much care: any

An election is going on in Venezuela. In a country where there are no more pets and children join gangs to fight over dumpster refuse, while their parents battle for dead rats to eat for dinner, you would expect the incumbent party to lose a free election. But Nicolas Maduro will no doubt be re-elected, in part because the polls are being boycotted by most of his opponents. So Venezuela’s socialist catastrophe will most likely continue, for now. The Associated Press reports: "Sunday’s election has drawn broad criticism since some of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s most-popular rivals were barred from running,

A theological who’s who of Leftist Christian leaders are organizing a march on the White House to ‘Reclaim Jesus’ from President Donald Trump that is set for the evening of May 24. One of the leaders of the anti-Trump march is Rev. Michael Bruce Curry who ‘stole the show‘ with his lengthy sermon at the British royal wedding on Saturday between Prince Harry and American Meghan Markle. Three march organizers were spiritual advisors to President Barack Obama while one counseled President Bill Clinton during the Lewinsky scandal and later endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in 2016.

After about thirteen years of being a loyal customer of Netflix, the time has come for me to say goodbye. (Snip) Given that I’m a conservative, one might be inclined to believe my choice to leave Netflix is predicated upon the company’s most recent decision to partner with Barack and Michelle Obama’s new company, called “Higher Ground Productions,” to produce loads of new content. And in a way, I guess that’s correct. But this choice by Netflix has not alone led me to this decision. Rather, this was the straw that finally broke the camel’s back -- the latest in a series of indicators that the network has become little more than a

Marie Harf said we could see a "constitutional crisis" if President Trump keeps meddling in the Russia investigation. She agreed with former Attorney General Eric Holder´s claim that Justice Department norms are being "eroded," and that Trump and his congressional supporters should not be requesting access to materials related to the ongoing probe.

Pope Francis has reportedly told a gay man that "God made you that way and loves you as you are," apparently pushing the pontiff´s acceptance of homosexuality to a new level. Francis made the comments to Juan Carlos Cruz, a Chilean victim of priestly sexual abuse who recently spent days with the pope at the Vatican to discuss his ordeal as the pontiff moves to tackle decades of coverups and ostracism of victims in the Chilean church, according to the Spanish newspaper El Pais. Cruz was quoted as having discussed his homosexuality with Francis. "He told me: ´Juan Carlos, I

At the end of all the scandal and drama, all of the breathlessly reported lies and false accusations, at the end of all the money wasted on some zany kabuki swamp dance choreographed to the thrumming of giant bullfrogs and yipping of excited coyotes — at the end of all of this — it comes down to precisely what we said it was a year and a half ago. The Obama administration — with or without the knowledge and direction of President Obama himself — perverted one of the most powerful, clandestine spying operations in the world and used it at the very height of a presidential campaign to spy on political opponents,

Former Secretary of State John Kerry warned President Donald Trump Sunday that Democrats are not afraid to go against his “America First” policies. “We won’t win, any of us, ultimately, by retreating within our borders, by focusing on our own nations only, or by going it alone,” Kerry told those gathered at New York University’s Abu Dhabi’s commencement ceremony Sunday — a direct reference to the president’s “America First” trade and immigration policies. Kerry served as the secretary of state for former President Barack Obama. He also, notably, was one of the key negotiators for the administration when it was

A New Jersey high school is under fire after it released prom tickets that encouraged students to ´party like it´s 1776´. Cherry Hill High School East designed the prom tickets to commemorate that the dance was being held at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. But the ´insensitive´ language offended members of the student body, prompting an immediate apology from principal Dennis Perry. ´I am writing to apologize for the hurt feelings this reference caused for members of our school family,´ Perry wrote in a letter posted to Twitter on Friday. (Snip) ´I especially apologize to our African American students, who I have

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the Native American* Democrat from Massachusetts, has boldly pledged to refuse to accept donations from the National Rifle Association. Which really does not change anything because, according to OpenSecrets.org, the NRA has never donated to Sen. Warren in the first place. Still, Sen. Warren is being praised for this decision announced via NowthisNews.com in which she proudly proclaims, "It´s time we strip the NRA of its stranglehold over our children´s lives." She is technically the first Senator to refuse to accept NRA money.

Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday urged Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI officials to "simply say no" to President Trump´s demand for an expanded investigation into his claims of FBI wrongdoing as it relates to his campaign. "More DOJ norms being eroded. Trump-a SUBJECT of the investigation-wants access to material related to the inquiry," Holder tweeted. (Snip) His latest criticism of the president came as Trump and his allies have claimed, without evidence, that an FBI informant spied on his campaign for political purposes. On Sunday, Trump said he would demand the DOJ investigate the matter.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer fumed Tuesday over the Trump administration´s "outrageous" decision to exclude Democrats from an upcoming meeting in which Justice Department officials will give House Republicans documents related to the FBI´s investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Republican lawmakers had been demanding DOJ release the classified documents for months. “The only thing more outrageous than this meeting occurring at all is the fact that it’s now partisan,” the New York Democrat said. “It is crystal clear that Chairman Nunes’ intent is to interfere with the investigation, and Speaker Ryan is allowing it to
