Holder Vows To End Raids On Medical Marijuana Clubs

Holder Vows To End Raids On Medical Marijuana Clubs

“I've read several articles on marijuana use vs. cigarette smoking as it relates to instances of cancers and all the government studies are flawed. People don't toke up the same way smokers use nicotine. It's apples and oranges. There are some studies in CA that show no link at all between marijuana use and any onset of any cancer. If pot is SO DANGEROUS, please show me the bodies. The people don't want pot to be illegal, the Adolf Coors company does.”

“Nicotine is the addictive additive, tar is the culprit in cigarettes.

And you're right. I've never known anyone to chain-toke like a smoker chain-smokes.”

“Novenber 20,2007. The day I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung and bone cancer. Adenocarcinoma on the right, neuro-endocrine on the left. After 2 months of chemo, my oncologist suggested that I try MM. I am now lung cancer free and only have one site of bone cancer left. I hope it is approved soon so more people can get relief.”

“As a former McD Corporation employee, I am not suprised to note that the corporation and their franchisees are still up to their old tricks. I worked in a corporate accounting department for five years until I was injured in an elevator accident in the building where their office was located. The result of the accident in 2002 was a fractured spine, several heavily damaged discs, a lot of pain and total denial of any benefits of long term disability by the company. I was harrassed for paperwork each month for two years ( the length of federal leave act) until I was terminated by the company. The corp. filed a workman comp claim for me without my knowledge, used the wrong address, and I had 24 hours notice to find council and appear at Workers Comp for hearing. At said hearing, I was informed that since the elevator dropped three or floors with me INSIDE, and I was 30 minutes early for work, and had not arrived inside our suite that this accident occured outside the scope of my employment and I was not eligible for disability. Still had long term disability coverage as a benefit of my employment. So I filed for LTD. I was denied. Five years later, after the company long term disability insurer was forced by the Dept. of Labor, my case was reviewed and I won my disability claim. McDonald's does not want to see you smile if you are injured on the job.”
