Federal Judge Says No To Washington Family's Medical Marijuana Defense

Federal Judge Says No To Washington Family's Medical Marijuana Defense

Commented May 7, 2014 at 10:05:43 in Politics

“When it comes to marijuana it's high time that we either got a new federal law or we got a new federal government. If our elected officials can't understand by now that marijuana is a far less-harmful and less-addictive alternative to alcohol then they need to be voted out of power because they're causing far more harm than good!”

“By keeping marijuana illegal we fuel street gangs and the Mexican drug cartels - who kill thousands of people in order to protect their market share and profits. There is nothing in marijuana that causes anything like this kind of harm! We need to legalize marijuana like beer and wine and REDUCE harm in society.”

“What complete nonsense! The researchers talk like these are the first people to have ever used marijuana when humans have used it safely for more than ten thousand years.

If this is "a very early indication of what becomes a problem later on" then why have we never seen it eventuate in more than ten thousand years of human use?

Being arrested for possessing marijuana causes FAR more harm than marijuana itself ever could! We need to legalize marijuana as a far LESS harmful and LESS addictive alternative to alcohol.”

“What is wrong with these people at the DEA? They can't seriously believe that we have to arrest 700,000 people/year in order to protect a few dogs from eating something they shouldn't!

There's tons of things in a home that dogs shouldn't eat. We don't need to ruin people's lives and deny society a FAR less-harmful and less-addictive alternative to alcohol just to protect a few dogs from a tummy ache! These people need to be made unemployed. They should NOT be occupying positions of authority in our great country!”

“Now that that's been resolved there's no reason why Georgia shouldn't legalize marijuana as a far less-harmful alternative to alcohol. We could prevent a lot of the harm that alcohol causes by giving people the right to choose marijuana instead of alcohol.

Less drunks on the roads, less alcohol-related diseases, less domestic violence - these are things that we should have an automatic right to! Our government should NOT be arresting people for wanting to make a choice that REDUCES harm in their lives!!”

“Alcohol causes liver disease, brain damage, cancer, violent rages and according to the CDC, kills more than 80,000 people/year in the U.S. Marijuana, on the other hand, lacks the ability to do *any* of these things and as far as its ability to cause addiction, marijuana is only about as addictive as coffee.

Marijuana is a FAR safer alternative to alcohol and we could prevent a lot of the harm that alcohol causes by giving people the right to choose marijuana instead of alcohol.

NIDA is either lying to the taxpayers that fund it when it says that marijuana is not safer than alcohol or it is simply wholly and endemically incompetent.”

“Coffee is more addicting. Caffeine has withdrawal symptoms, mostly headaches or migraines. MJ is basically a mental thing, and even heavy users should have no problem going without, other than the 'man I could really smoke one' thoughts. Then when you try to compare MJ to legal narcotic medicine, you get all sorts of lopsided scientific facts. There's no reason it should have ever been illegal. We really need Hemp as well”

“According to the drug czar, marijuana can't be legalized because "legalizing marijuana won't solve the nation's drug problem".

Well, legalizing alcohol didn't "solve the nation's alcohol problem" either - and that wasn't the point of it. Alcohol was legalized to reduce the amount of harm in society and to make alcohol significantly harder for children to access. And as long as alcohol is legalized we’re going to continue to reap these benefits.

We need to REJECT this notion of the ONDCP that marijuana should only be legalized if it "solves the nation's drug problem" - this is not even a factor that they should consider!

The ONLY thing that's relevant here is that legalizing marijuana like wine will make marijuana much more difficult for children to access and will give adults a FAR safer alternative to alcohol. Legalization of these substances is a rational policy that effectively minimizes the amount of harm and addiction in society.”

“It would be sort of a devil's bargain--we will legalize pot, but expect people to help us crack down on meth, heroin, crack, PCP, and others that really add to violence and crime. Pot usually leads to lethargy, its users are usually to disinterested to get violent or go out and cause trouble.”

“"the most responsible public policy is one that restricts its availability and discourages its use"

That is just an assumption!

In fact, the most responsible public policy is one that minimizes harm and addiction. And because marijuana's significantly safer and less addictive than alcohol, legalizing marijuana like wine will allow people to substitute marijuana for alcohol which will *reduce* the amount of harm and addiction in society, as well as end all the harm that's caused by our annual 700,000 needless marijuana arrests and drive drug dealers out of our neighborhoods and away from our children.”
