Medical Marijuana Users: The Greatest Imminent DangerPhillip Leveque Doctor of Pharmacology Salem-News.com
It's Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske
(PORTLAND, OR) - Gil Kerlikowske, Executive Director of the Office of National Drug Policy, and President Barack Obama's point man on this subject. Actually, he is the most destructive element as far as medical patients are concerned. He has apparently included medical users with every other kind of criminal. His office and he himself, calls marijuana "a harmful drug with a strong potential for addiction, particularly around young people". He must have obtained his screwy information from the several other federal offices which have been spewing this false information, starting with the 'Reefer Madness' film in 1937.
He gave an exclusive interview with Noelle Crombie of The Oregonian Thursday January 17, so we can expect some further balderdash from her. I say that because most of her recent articles in The Oregonian have been smelly garbage and she has had hundreds of replies to her articles that she is so far out in left field, she can't see home plate!
Director Kerlikowske reports that in California, 7.4 percent of drivers tested positive for marijuana, more than for alcohol. That is good news, alcohol is far more dangerous for driving and even life itself. Kerlikowske even stopped off in Denver for a "dog and pony show" and maybe some skiing in the "high mountains" west of Denver. He also talked to Portland high school students who probably thought he was the creature from the black lagoon. A local editor of drug lore facts, Doug McVay, strongly disagreed with him. Gil will be taking his "dog and pony show" to Seattle, to advise those 100,000 plus miscreants of the severe danger of weed.
Currently in The Oregonian was that the article in Washington state "To Tackle Pot Regulation.'
I have posted several articles about poor old Gil. He published that the U.S. government ardently supports marijuana research. By that title, in Salem-News.com, December 5 2011. I also wrote "Medical Marijuana Patient's Worst Enemy" Salem-News.com, December 20, 2011, and "Drug Czar Kerlikowske, Misinformed Anti-Cannabis Attack Pit Bull" June 6, 2012.
Regarding the Washington cannabis commission, I have the greatest empathy for those poor folks. They only information they have to look forward to is a bunch of well known garbage from people like Kerlikowske. In the meantime, the million or so marijuana users are going to ignore almost everything they say or do because the business of marijuana is firmly entrenched in Washington with the growers, suppliers, even dispensaries and the patients, most of which are underground. The same situation is in Colorado, also, which is the same it is in shameful California, for all of this started about 200 years ago.
WELCOME KERLIKOWSKE TO THE REAL WORLD!
