Medical Marijuana Comedy Club: The Oregonian Prints Reefer Madness!

What good is a live brain with a dead body?

(PORTLAND, OR) - I don't know whether to be astonished any more about The Oregonian's pathetically inane remarks about the hazards of medical marijuana.

They were doing reasonably well printing about the seven-year old girl with leukemia whose life was being preserved by the use of medical marijuana. But then on December 1, 2012, they had to put their foot in their mouth again by printing 'Marijuana's Medical Neverland' which displays about as much vilifying disinformation as possible in an editorial.

First of all, the medical marijuana treatment works! In fact, it is working in Oregon for about 2,000 cancer patients. 7-year old marijuana patient Mykayla Comstock is just the youngest one; in fact using very high doses of medical marijuana. We also have reports of a one-year old cancer patient using marijuana effectively, which indicates the overall success of medical marijuana as medicine. Many others in many states are using marijuana to safely treat various cancers and the adverse effects of cancer chemotherapy. So I can ask the question, "What's the bitch?" The Oregonian asks, "Is this dose unnecessarily high?"

My remark is, "Well it works! Is it child abuse"? No treatment would result in her death!

The Oregonian asks, "Are there different approaches to protect her brain"?

"What good is a live brain with a dead body"?

The Oregonian writes that the medical marijuana permit is a recommendation by the physician. IT IS NOT! If a patient has one of the diseases diagnosed by a previous physician making them eligible for a permit, they can get one. No recommendation is required!

To state that the threshold is low for a permit, they are crazy! Oregon has among the highest requirements, no fake permits here!

The Oregonian snidely remarks that, "Marijuana is about as risky as Pez candy". They are right about this. They inanely suggest that marijuana is "easy to grow, easy to buy, and possible to feed in concentrated unregulated form to children".

Strike out ---- more inane remarks!

The Oregonian further inanely writes that Oregon should, "Require a second doctor's recommendation". We are already doing this.

Inane, inane, inane, --- why?
