Dell, You have watched "Reefer Madness" a few too many times.
Check out the children whose seizures have stopped due to treatment by Cannabis.
Listen to the soldiers suffering from PTSD who were given OxyContin and became addicted to that dangerous and profitable drug.
As a former cop I am aware of the "Federal" prejudices against Cannabis. The DEA, formerly the BNDD, has thousand of agents who use the "War on Drugs" to keep their rice bowls filled. There are also legions of Grants given annually to various law enforcement agencies, again to fight the "War on Drugs".
What little Medical Research that has been allowed to be conducted has shown Cannabis helps with PTSD and seizures, especially among young children. No Federal report, written by non-scientists, can hide this fact. It has also been PROVEN to help Cancer patients...I personally know a few right now.
"Reefer Madness" was produced with Federal Funds back in 1936. I think many Police Chiefs and OLD politicians like John McCain still think of this comedy as a Training Film.
Go after Heroin, as I stated in my former Letter to Editor; that is the REAL drug problem.
We come from different backgrounds and most of the people I know, College Grads and Professional people, enjoy the BENEFITS of "Pot". They don't drive loaded and they don't get in fights.
If YOU don't want to smoke then DON'T. If YOU don't want to drink, as you have stated previously that you don't consume alcohol; then don't.
If you attend church feel free, unlike Sen. Sylvia Allen who tried to pass a bill that would have made church attendance mandatory, but don't try to force ME to do YOUR bidding.
No one is telling anyone that must partake of this HARMLESS plant...So in turn, don't tell others that they cannot. Please come on into modern times and medicine...PS Climate change is not a hoax started by the Chinese.
Go Hillary Clinton...Make Arizona great again by voting Blue.
If the Arizona Republican Lawmakers, like Sen. Sylvia Allen, Reps. Brenda Barton and Bob Thorpe had paid our schools in Arizona, the money required by law, after being passed by the voters, there would never have been an "expensive lawsuit with potentially endless appeals".
These "Lawmakers" broke the law and refused to support education.
Vote Democrat to protect our children from these vultures who want use Arizona education money to build more PRISONS and buy more police cars for LOCAL Police Departments.
Wrong priorities at play on the Right.
Educate our CHILDREN...don't imprison them.
900,000 people in prison in America for "Drug Offenses"...mostly marijuana. Tobacco and alcohol are more dangerous than pot. Over 50% of Americans use Marijuana...Prohibition didn't work, but it sure killed and imprisoned a lot of Americans. Time to legalize Mary Jane and collect the taxes like Colorado is doing...$135,000,000 in 2015 with $35 Million going to schools.
Sounds like you have stock in the For Profit Prisons Ron. There are many young people in Payson who are hooked on Heroin...they made a mistake. Many want to be clean, as do their parents who are suffering along with them. How about a little empathy...and some treatment for these folks? I imagine that when you were on the Fire Department you helped save many people who had found themselves in 'miserable plights' because they screwed up.
John, Thanks for putting it simply enough for even the most ardent Teabagger to comprehend.
Mr. White, Sen. Allen introduced a bill last year calling for MANDATORY CHURCH ATTENDANCE...It did not pass Thank "God".
This new law would allow ANY politician to BLACKMAIL any town in Arizona that did not meet the politician's morality test.
NO thanks...to small time politicians trying to rule my town.
Senator Sylvia Allen, the same Senator Sylvia Allen who introduced a bill last year that would make Church Attendance Mandatory!!
The bill did not pass, considering that this is totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL...
Vote for Nikki Bagley please, for COMMON SENSE at our Capitol in Phoenix.
When did you determine the debate was "rigged". Was it AFTER the clown declared victory the next day? He showed the world what an idiot he is, and now you're angry. Too bad, dude. Even he realizes he is not fit for the presidency. Funny, huh?
