The Scam Known As Medical Marijuana
Last comment by lindataylor 12 months ago.

The goal of drug legalization advocates historically has been to convince the general public that marijuana is a harmless plant. Of course, they are fully aware of the fact that so called “medical” marijuana is grossly abused, and store front dispensaries are nothing more than legitimized (Prop 215) drug dealing operations. In September of 2006, the California Healthcare Collective located on McHenry Avenue in Modesto was raided by law enforcement and it’s owners Luke Scarmozzo and Ricardo Montes were both arrested for selling marijuana to people without a valid recommendation. You can see Scarmozzo’s video here. Law enforcement seized guns, thousands of dollars in cash, raided 7 homes and confiscated a $170,000 Mercedes, despite the fact that “medical” marijuana dispensaries are suppose to be set up as non profits. Clearly that is not the case.

We now have a new group advocating for yet another marijuana dispensary in Modesto. “The Prop 215 Information Center” and it’s director Mark Gray has offered to pay the city 5 percent of the proceeds if he’s allowed to open the dispensary, according to Gray, he just wants the city to have a piece of the action so to speak. The City of Modesto passed an ordinance in 2006 prohibiting pot dispensaries, which Mark Gray is fully aware of. Maybe that’s why he offered the bribe.

So called “medical” marijuana is the largest scam ever to be perpetrated against the people of California, in it’s history. It is in fact the most prolific con job this state has ever seen and we, the people are it’s intended target and victim.

One only has to go to Craigslist, and type in “Prop 215” to find over 150 marijuana delivery services available in Stanislaus County. Legalizers are aware that anyone can get a medical marijuana card for a fee. A simple Bing or Google search using the key works “pot docs California” will deliver over 43 million responses to this inquiry. It doesn’t matter that marijuana is the number one cause of teen’s entering drug treatment centers across the country, they see our teens as a means to an end, to be able to recreationally smoke pot without consequence. Our teens are acceptable casualties.

Drug legalization advocates have infiltrated our state capitol, often paying thousands of dollars to state legislators under the guise of donations. The Drug Policy Alliance paid out tens of thousands to elected representatives including Senator Mark Leno (D-San Francisco). Leno is currently working to undermine the rights of California employers to fire employees who test positive for marijuana use by introducing SB 129, and this is not the first time Leno has attempted to undermine California businesses.

Assemblyman Tom Ammiano is the current chair of the Assembly Public Safety Committee, his motives are anything but in the best interest of the publics safety. In January 2010, Ammiano, along with 3 other public safety members, all democrats, voted to approve a bill to legalize marijuana. Our Public Safety Committee chairman and 3 other members of this important committee, whose job it is to protect California residents, voted to approve the legalization of marijuana, despite unlimited information on the harms associated with it’s use. This committee is not a public safety committee as the name implies, it is in fact a public endangerment committee with the intent of causing harm.

Without “medical” marijuana, full legalization would not be possible. If it was ever truly about helping the ‘sick’ and ‘dying” as Prop 215 advocates would have liked us to believe back in 1996, they would be willing to go through the FDA process, instead of deliberately avoiding it. The mission of U S Food and Drug Administration is the protection and advancement of public health through safety, efficacy, and quality of the products it regulates. FDA regulated products require advanced technology and research standards. The FDA works to “ensure the acceptance of science-led regulatory decisions by the U.S. consumer and the respective scientific communities and thus maintaining scientific credibility, integrity, accuracy and predictability of the products they approve.”

Continued here...

Yet we know legalization is the intended goal because we voted on it last November. Prop 19 would have legalized marijuana outright. Although it was clearly defeated, and should have sent a strong message, once again legalizers are working on another legalization plan for 2012, while some state legislators continue to chip away at our drug laws, one by one, despite the fact that they are violating their oath of office and the constitutional rights of millions of California residents.

How long are you willing to sit idly by and allow this fiasco to continue?

Only 7 - 11% of the population smoke marijuana...yet they want to dictate policy to the other 89% of us. Since marijuana users describe the state of being high with words such as stoned, high, wasted, baked, fried, cooked, toasted, burnt, dazed, bent, couch-locked, and wrecked, should we change any public policy or law in order to INCREASE the number of people in this state of mind?

Should massive changes in public policy, statutes, and even constitutions be dictated by 7-11% of the population? (Depending on the survey)

Of course not!

Only 11% of Americans currently use marijuana. So much for the popularity of pot! Of that number, 12% are Democrats, 11% are independents, and only 1% are Republicans.

Colorado’s pot tax for schools sets record in May, crushes 2014 totals

With the school taxes soaring — seeing increases of $400,000-$500,000 per month for three consecutive months — many wonder where the totals will end up at the end of 2015, and if they’ll near the $40 million mark. A conservative estimate would place the school taxes in the $25-$30 million range. But if future months are equal to May’s record-setting figures, the tax will raise more than $38 million by the time the calendar turns to 2016.

Washington: Legalized Marijuana Access Not Associated With Increased Teen Use

DENVER, CO - The Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (RMHIDTA) has released its updated report, The Legalization of Marijuana in Colorado, The Impact, Volume 3,which outlines the most alarming data to date, demonstrating how Colorado marijuana legalization policies have harmed public safety and health.

Highlights from the report show serious changes since 2014, when retail marijuana businesses began operating in Colorado, including:

· Traffic deaths: A 32 percent increase in marijuana-related traffic deaths in just one year from 2013

· Driving under the influence: Toxicology reports with positive marijuana results of active THC for primarily driving under the influence have increased 45 percent

· Marijuana use by children: Colorado youth usage (ages 12 to 17) ranks 56 percent higher than the national average

· ER visits: A 29 percent increase in the number of marijuana-related emergency room visits

· Hospitalizations: A 38 percent increase in the number of marijuana-related hospitalizations

· Poison control: Marijuana-only related exposures increased 72 percent in only one year

· More marijuana trafficking: The yearly average interdiction seizures of Colorado marijuana increased another 34 percent

"This report serves as a wake-up call for all Coloradans," said Bob Doyle, chair of Colorado SAM. "It is time to stop yielding to Big Marijuana special interests and put health and safety ahead of marijuana commercialization."

"For too long, the marijuana industry has been telling Americans that 'everything's fine' in Colorado. This data-driven report tells a very different story," said Kevin Sabet, President of SAM and an assistant professor at the University of Florida.

Jo McGuire, co-chair of Colorado SAM added, "We are prepared to engage Colorado community members in conversations that will send strong messages to our state leaders that these outcomes are unacceptable and legalization clearly does not work."

And the scam continues...taxes. Marijuana legalization advocates claim the taxes raised on marijuana will help state budgets. lol...is the joke on us?

Marijuana Impact Assessment Council discusses revenues, costs of medical marijuana.

"As a baseline, Noble calculated revenues using an average retail price of $160 per ounce and an estimated 10,000 medical marijuana patients in Wyoming smoking two pot cigarettes a day. Based on that, he said, about 120,000 ounces would be consumed each year, amounting to $19 million in gross revenue.

"The sales tax on that, if that was all that was allowed to be assessed, would be a little over $1 million, of which the state would get $540,000," Noble said.

"But administration of the program is going to be expensive. Colorado has 55 people on staff to handle facilities in their state, and they've authorized for up to 85 people to cover recreational plus medical."

Pro-legalization groups are often comparing the potential tax revenue of marijuana with alcohol and tobacco. Yet, under closer examination, it is clear that this revenue doesn't even come close to covering the enormous costs to our society from these products: alcohol misuse results in increased traffic accidents, ER visits, domestic violence and lost work productivity, while both substances lead to substantial and costly medical problems, and even death.

There are still many people who believe that a person high on marijuana can function properly at home or work and can operate a motor vehicle without impairment. But the reality is that in 2011, marijuana was involved in 455,668 emergency room visits nationwide, and marijuana has been proven to impair motor coordination and reaction time, being
the second most prevalent drug (after alcohol) implicated in automobile accidents.

Colorado: 55% Of Voters Still Support Marijuana Legalization

Marijuana opponents like Kevin Sabet were very certain that Colorado voters would regret voting for marijuana legalization in 2012. Three years later, there is no buyer’s remorse in Colorado. In fact, the same percentage of voters that approved marijuana legalization in Colorado on Election Day 2012 stated that they still support it according to a poll recently released by Quinnipiac University. Per 9News:

Fifty-five percent of Colorado voters say they support the voter-passed law that legalized marijuana in the state, while 41 percent are opposed. And 53 percent said they believe that legalizing marijuana has been good for the state.

There’s a large gender gap when it comes to marijuana approval rates. Men are higher in the votes while woman are divided on the issue. Forty-five percent are saying it’s a good thing, and 47 percent believe marijuana is negatively affecting the state.

55.32% of Colorado voters voted ‘yes’ on Election Day 2012 for Amendment 64. I don’t expect Kevin Sabet to change his tune after the release of these poll results. However, I do expect him to look even dumber than usual if/when he continues to act like marijuana legalization in Colorado hasn’t worked. Colorado’s citizens have spoken, again, and they have expressed that they like their decision to legalize marijuana. I expect similar results in every other state that follows in Colorado’s footsteps.

Past-month marijuana use among college-age young adults, ages 18-25, was 62 percent higher than the national average (31.24% as compared to 19.32%). Use in full legalization states was nearly double that of use in non-medical pot states (27.86% as compared to 16.43% in 2014).

The Real Reason Marijuana Is Illegal

Potential Marijuana Legalization in Arizona Threatens TASC Drug Treatment Firm's Funding

A Maricopa County nonprofit that makes much of its money off low-level marijuana offenders would take a big financial hit if Arizona voters legalize marijuana in November.

The Treatment Assessment Screening Center, better known as TASC, contracts with the county to provide six months of mandatory drug-treatment services for first- or second-time offenders who get busted for possession of illegal drugs. TASC participants, with exceptions for low-income offenders, pay their own way for the program

If Arizonans vote "yes" on the Colorado-style legalization measure expected to be on the ballot next year, it would have huge effect on TASC, the nonprofit's CEO, Doug Kramer, acknowledges. TASC would need to seek out other court-ordered funding sources "to counter the loss of operating revenue," Kramer says.

Drive To Legalize Marijuana In Maine Advances On Judge's Ruling

An effort to allow Maine residents to vote to legalize recreational marijuana use advanced on Friday when a judge overruled a state official's decision invalidating some of the signatures needed to get the initiative on the ballot.

The ruling came a month after Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap's office disqualified almost half of the 99,229 voter signatures gathered by marijuana activists, leaving the initiative without enough certified supporters to land a spot on the ballot.

The Secretary of State's office said it had invalidated the petitions over concerns that the signatures of notaries public on various forms submitted did not match up with versions on file in official state records.

The Campaign to Regulate Marijuana like Alcohol, a national group advocating for the referendum, appealed the state's decision last month, saying that officials had disenfranchised tens of thousands of Maine voters based on a "handwriting technicality."

Pueblo County Commissioner Sal Pace Against Anti-Marijuana Petition

Commissioner Pace released the following statement:
“I’m saddened that a vocal minority is willing to tear apart our community when the voters of Pueblo have already spoken loud and clear. The result will be the same…again… except the community will be divided unnecessarily for the next seven months.

The folks running the measure need to explain to the hundreds of people working in Pueblo’s cannabis, construction, and real estate industries how they will put food on the table if this measure is successful.

Finally, if this passes what do we say to Pueblo County high school students promised scholarships, to the Colorado State Fair, Colorado State University-Pueblo, North Mesa and South Mesa Elementary, Beulah School, Runyon Field, Rye Mountain Park, and many other programs anticipating funds approved by the voters this past November from the 1B excise tax measure?”

Pot could put progressives in a tough spot

Progressive, or libertarian? (BOB PEARSON/EPA)

As Colorado continues its successful rollout of new state marijuana laws, it's not just potheads who are eager to see if legal weed can work. Politicos, too, are wondering how all of this will shake out.

Will pot smokers become a sought-after voting demographic? Will Republicans look like school marms if they oppose legal marijuana? Will liberal supporters suffer when the law change inevitably creates more drug users? Or federal headaches?

That all remains to be seen, but some obvious extrapolations make it clear that the legal weed experiment could at least put the politics of progressivism - all the rage in liberal circles now - in a tricky spot.

For one, there are glaring inconsistencies between the liberal argument for pot legalization and positions on other issues. An obvious one is gun control.

The same argument used against guns is used for pot: that legalizing pot and making it more available will reduce crime. No good liberal would say the same of guns, though there is substantial evidence to prove more guns equal less crime.

"We're told pot users will "responsibly" use marijuana in the privacy of their own homes. But what barometer are they using to determine that persistent recreational drug users, who have presumably broken the law before by possessing marijuana, are responsible people? And why aren't lawful gun owners afforded the same level of trust?"

Why aren't we having a discussion about drug use and how it contributes to minority arrests. Don't you get it yet...legal marijuana is causing the problem. There is a much bigger issues at play here as well. Marijuana is directly linked to mental illness and psychosis. Schools have a responsibility to stop it's use at all costs. No matter who is using and selling on campus. If there are a disproportionate number of minorities using and selling the drug on high school campuses, it could mean an increase in the number of teens diagnosed with mental illness. Mental illness is already leading to an increase in crime. We, the people would be better served by ensuring our schools are doing everything they can to stop the use and abuse of marijuana and other drugs. Pro drug advocates must stop lying about the harms associated with marijuana and concentrate their efforts on stopping drug use in our schools, period.

Pro marijuana advocates have exclaimed that marijuana actually cures cancer. Tommy Chong, the poster child for medical and legal marijuana told anyone that would listen that marijuana would cure his prostate cancer. It did not. In fact Tommy Chong now has rectal cancer. When are we going to acknowledge that marijuana is not a cure for cancer, it is in fact a significant risk factor for contracting the often fatal disease.

A legalizer recently claimed..."There are 80+ Cannabinoids in Cannabis. There are 80+ Cannabinoids in YOU. We are made with with it. Most of your life functions can be traced back to your Cannabinoids receptors"

So they think marijuana cannabinoids are the same as our bodies endocannabinoid system. Wrong.

The endocannabinoid system is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids (Neuromodulation is the physiological process by which a given neuron uses one or more neurotransmitters to regulate diverse populations of neurons). (Lipids are a group of naturally occurring molecules and their receptors.)

Two primary endocannabinoid receptors are CB1, and CB2. CB1 receptors are found predominantly in the brain and nervous system, as well as organs and tissue, and are the main molecular target of the endocannabinoid receptors including Anandamide. CB2 is responsible for regulating appetite, immune system functions and for regulating things like mood, balance, memory, pain and more.

Memory

Mice treated with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) show suppression of long-term potentiation in the hippocampus, a process that is essential for the formation and storage of long-term memory. These results concur with evidence suggesting that smoking marijuana impairs short and long term memory.

Energy, Balance & Metabolism

The endocannabinoid system has been shown to have a homeostatic role by controlling several metabolic functions, such as energy storage and nutrient transport. It acts on peripheral tissues such as adipocytes- (a cell specialized for the storage of fat, found in connective tissue.), hepatocytes- (l-iver cells), the gastrointestinal tract, the skeletal muscles and the endocrine pancreas. It is also implied to be for insulin sensitivity. Through all of this, the endocannabinoid system may play a role in clinical conditions, such as obesity, diabetes, and atherosclerosis, which may also give it a cardiovascular role, including heart attacks and strokes. There is no question THC plays an active roll in causing mental and physical health problems that lead to death. There is substantial evidence supporting the role for the endocannabinoid system as a regulator of dopamine activity in the basal ganglia - (base of the forebrain), a system that integrates cortical information to coordinate motor activity (balance) regulating signals. Dopamine is a naturally occurring hormone and neurotransmitter in the brain that is responsible for feelings of happiness, motivation, joy, pleasure, and an overall sense of well being. It also regulates focus and attention levels. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that is responsible for mood stability and balance. We already know how marijuana affects balance.

lindataylor commented on Thursday, Jun 09, 2016 at 16:49 PM

Continued...

Smoking or ingesting marijuana initially causes an increase in the amount of dopamine in the brain. However, with repeated use the brain adapts by reducing the number of dopamine receptors and by doing so, dopamine levels fall dramatically which causes a permanent loss in the ability to feel pleasure, happiness, or motivation.

Marijuana use itself permanently damages dopamine and serotonin neurotransmitters in the brain, and can cause serious irreversible mental illness including schizophrenia.

Exploration, social behavior, and anxiety

Prolonged, systemic exposure to cannabinoids (marijuana) has often been associated with anti-social effects. There have been studies that examined the effect that these receptors play on exploratory behavior. Researchers selectively targeted glutamatergic and GABAergic cortical interneurons and studied results in open field, novel object, and sociability tests. Eliminating glutamaterigic cannabinoid receptors led to decreased object exploration, social interactions, and increased aggressive behavior. (Glutamatergic and GABAergic neurons are found on the membranes of neuron cells in our brains and nervous systems).

We already know how marijuana affects social behaviors. So while they claim cannabinoids and our bodies endocannabinoid system act the same...they are dead wrong!

They just reaffirm what scientists discovered decades ago.

In 1973, when the potency of pot was less than 2%, an American scientist named Dr. Akira Miroshima proclaimed “…In my 20 years of research on human cells, I have never found any other drug, including heroin, which came close to the DNA damage caused by marijuana.”

The effect occurred even when the marijuana lacked THC and when the marijuana was burned without rolling paper; it is an effect of smoke from burned plant material.
