Re: Pot may prolong pain, not relieve it: StudyAug 21st, 2009
Of course he made it up. There are no stats to back up that outrageous claim. I don't doubt he is controlling but also so rigid that a fart must be very painful.
You seem to run your life on prejudice, cliffy. You knock around slander and complete falsehoods on Christianity. You don't know me, and yet like your contrived charicatures of organized religion, you have already developed an image of me in your mind, maybe founded in some unfavourable childhood experiences, from which you will not deviate. So i'm rigid, eh.. pot, kettle, black.
DB, it would not surprise me if Cannabis was implicated in intensifying psychoses, of which schizophrenia is an extreme form. There is a nasty side to habitual use of marijuana. Most of the favourable 'research' on marijuana comes from a political lobby that is associated with rebellious interrelated New Age endeavours of all sorts. It is an icon to the old 'counter-culture', which includes a grab bag of iconoclastic causes, deeply antipathetic to modern, technoligical, Western culture.
However, if you have seen my previous posts on the subject, you'd know i have accepted that it is a part of growing up in our modern culture. I'm against legalization, especially for the crock of 'medical' reasons, but likewise i'm not for burdening some casual user with a felonious criminal record for life either.
