Turdstone = disciple of Satan. He wants us to overturn A64 so cannabis consumers would get busted for possession and have to pay him for 'counseling'.
Scr3w you Turdstone....no one is going to beg you for forgiveness. We voted YES on A64 and you lost. Go crawl under a rock somewhere and die, please.
I'm voting for A64
Schizophrenia affects approximately one percent of the population. That percentage has held steady since the disease was identified, while the percentage of people who have smoked marijuana has varied from about 5% to around 40% of the general population.
Despite a massive increase in the number of Australians consuming the drug since the 1960s, Wayne Hall of the University of Queensland found no increase in the number of cases of schizophrenia in Australia. Mitch Earleywine of the University of Southern California similarly found the same with regard to the US population and Oxford's Leslie Iversen found the same regard to the population in the UK. According to Dr. Alan Brown, a professor of psychiatry and epidemiology at Columbia University, "If anything, the studies seem to show a possible decline in schizophrenia from the '40s and the ‘50s".
A64 will also permit non-drug hemp agriculture.
Hempseed oil has a perfect 4:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 essential fatty acids. The World Health Organization recommends this ratio of 4:1 for optimal health.
The typical American diet has ratios in the range of 20:1 to 50:1.
The Bush Administration tried to ban hempseed oil back in 2000 because they felt that industrial hemp was a "stalking horse for legalization". The hemp foods ban was overturned by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in 2004, although we still have to import all hemp products, due to the ban on cultivation of non-drug hemp.
These anti-hemp laws have gone beyond all common sense. It seems like the gov would rather we kill ourselves with junk food than admit that this prohibition is failed and counterproductive.
Fast and Furious is a modern day Iran Contra. Reagan's boys sold missiles to Iranians and used the proceeds to fund drug-running Contras. Oliver North's diary: entry for August 9, 1985, "Honduran DC-6 which is being used for runs out of New Orleans is probably being used for drug runs into U.S."
I have a friend that at one time used marijuana to treat night terrors. It cured the condition and she quit using marijuana.
This is great news. Marijuana prohibition has never been an effective way of managing the use of this drug.
