“Natural cannabis is safe. "Synthetic marijuana", legal or not, is not safe.

Natural cannabis is safe. "Synthetic THC" (Marinol), legal or not, is not safe.

Natural cannabis is safe. Nobody has ever died just from using it, whether smoking or otherwise.”

“Wrong. Any kind of smoke inhalation will cause heart disease and lung problems over the years. Maybe nobody has ever overdosed on Marijuana but to say nobody has "ever" died from it is a bit of a stretch.”

“>The letter warns that marijuana can cause suicidal thoughts, impairs driving and is a "gateway drug."

Ha ha ha ha!

It's most likely to help or even cure depression, it's been shown to be the least impairing of all drugs, and if it was legal, it wouldn't be a gateway to anything but Taco Bell. Next!

> the police warn that liberalizing pot laws will lead to an increase in crime.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha! So...fewer people arrested = more crime? I think they're really worried about a decrease in their budgets!”

“The only people in "rehab" for marijuana are forced there by the court system, or whose parents put them there because they're underage. People rarely have problems with marijuana because it's simply not addictive. I've heard from dozens of weed smokers who were forced into rehab by courts and the REAL addicts complained that they didn't belong there and they were wasting their time.”

“That's because she wasn't actually asked to address whether it was addictive. She was asked to write this article http://www.huffingtonpost.com/laurel-dewey/marijuana-is-not-addictive_b_1739339.html and then the editors threw it into this format.

But she still makes more sense than the doctor...even being a "lowly mystery writer" :-)”

“My bad, I meant is it addictive. By the way I was just simplifying the definition. I'm an addictions therapist, so I know it's more complicated than that. Nevertheless those are two hallmarks of addictive substances.”

“Dr. DuPont, as a member of ASAM, is actually ignoring his own organization's policy statement on the nature of addiction, which may be found at http://www.asam.org/advocacy/find-a-policy-statement/view-policy-statement/public-policy-statements/2011/12/15/the-definition-of-addiction and basically says that the addiction mechanism primarily involves brain rewards, motivation, and memory.

Now let's talk about marijuana. DuPont claims that marijuana users "show withdrawal symptoms that include anxiety, depression, irritability, restlessness, sleep difficulty, strange dreams, anger and aggression. Sound like heroin, cocaine or alcohol withdrawal?"

Isn't it funny that virtually every one of those conditions he mentions are some of the main reasons why people use medical marijuana in the first place? The celebrated Dr. DuPont has discovered that when people stop taking their medicine, their symptoms come back! Nobel Prize, anyone?

Dr. DuPont, you know those symptoms are NOTHING like the hell a person must endure when they stop a truly physically addictive drug suddenly...the chills, fever, sweats, and vomiting from actual alcohol or heroin addiction.

I've been taking medical marijuana daily for over two years. On several occasions, I've suddenly had to stop using it, and I've never had any more reaction than some of my symptoms coming back. It's FAR more noticeable when I'm forced to forgo my daily coffee...which IS physically addictive. Millions of people have noticed the same thing, which is why over 70% of Americans now support medical marijuana.”
