Just been considering all the research out there that has been cherry picked for the big propaganda outlets out there. I remember how low it got when I-502 was in play. The gal who beheaded her child was on pot AND PCP and also really socially isolated, depressed, and abandoned by the rest of the yuppies racing to work.
Then there was Dharma Rosada. The white pigs in Seattle tried to say it was pot that drove her to suicide; nope, a whole lot of women who are violently sexually assaulted are parasuicidal for a long, long time after.
Then there was the New Zealand longitudinal study passed into the big propaganda outlets via Columbia University. Done by a grad student, It neglected to factor in socioeconomic factors like having a conscience and choosing your own way in it’s subjective evaluation of what added up to “success” in an ascendent dictatorship like the US; Hey, I got a bridge for sale, cheap. But the study I really do love came from http://www.norml.org that found that teen suicide rates were lower in states where medical marijuana was legal; that’s the ticket!! Then consider this: brain malnutrition is the real causal factor behind the memory loss, not the cannabis and is reversible (www.orthomed.org and http://www.whale.to the nutritional medicine section (Archie Kalokerinos) on megavitamin therapy). And what one uncovers more and more as one continues the conversation is that they have no rational reason for hating cannabis and hippies other than the bright colors, long hair, and that durned loud music. Aaahh, go away, get old, and hate on someone else, will ya? Keep on fighting, we’re winning. Let’s get 1,000,000+ people out of jail.
