Dr. Robert "Stoner" Sterner talked with patient Rudy "Redeyes" Reyes recently.

I love a little alliteration.

Some say medical marijuana laws properly legitimize marijuana as a therapeutic drug. Others say they are just backdoor attempts to legalize marijuana.

I bet it's a bit of both.

Good setup, but what's the punchline?

In other news, 50 guys not cops with the last name Reyes wanted throughout California for dispensing marijuana without a Harvard degree.

We MUST wipe out this scourge to humanity that is cannabis.

Our civilization will most likely crumble under the dark shadow that is marijuana if we do not triumph.

The police officer walked out of the doctor's office with signed authorizations that allowed him to buy marijuana for his dog, as well as for himself.

Now the Medical Board wants to revoke Sterner's license, accusing the 50-year-old Middletown doctor of gross negligence in issuing medical marijuana recommendations to two undercover police officers. He is also accused of incompetence for his lack of knowledge about the safe use of marijuana and its therapeutic value.



You can do the same thing with prozac and nobody blinks twice. Seriously - try to get your cat hooked up with some prozac sometime. It's easy and you're family doctor will hook you up inside of 48 hours.
 
2007-10-21 01:35:02 PM  
So this law is about 10 years old now, and in this time there have 20 complaints and 5 doctors disiplined. That's actually not too bad.

If you don't like the laws then work to change them. The police just enforce the laws your elected politicians douchnozzles make at the behest of the public special interest groups.

Just because it's easy to do doesn't make it legal, or safe. I doubt your family doctor has a veterinary formulary in their office, and I also doubt they know the appropriate dosage for animals. While it's sometime the same milligram of drug per kilogram of body as a human, it's not always - and it's very different for psychoactive drugs.

Yeah, but prozac is a more dangerous drug than cannabis. It's also easier to get and over-perscribed. We hand out powerful psychoactives like ritalin and prozac (and others) like they were halloween candy, but we crack down on medical cannabis? If we're going to regulate drugs then let's...y'know...regulate drugs. Our drug policy says that ALL drugs are equally dangerous (except when they're not). prozac==cannabis==heroin==codine==morphine==ritalin. Our laws treat them all the same. Except that some of them get a nod by the medical establishment and some don't. Used with direction and under supervision, sure - they're supposed to be just fine. But are we really supervising drug use?
 
2007-10-21 01:47:30 PM  
Oh no...what if someone got HIGH?

You can advertise much more dangerous drugs during the Superbowl with cutesy little mascots and no one blinks an eye, but when a doctor liberally gives it out as medicine its somehow news?

/in before anecdotal stories of knowing really stupid stoners as evidence that marijuana should be criminalized across the board.

i remember reading your posts a long time ago, and i can't remember if they were more of the pro-bush, pro-war, or pro-religion variety (all get me riled up), but i always masochistically looked for your login in threads to see the opposite of what i thought. i don't know what might have happened, but over the past few months, i've pretty much agreed with everything you've said, and you don't seem like the same person you were a couple years ago. you seem very level-headed and full of common sense these days. i'm not nearly as prolific a poster as yourself, so perhaps i might have missed some major change in things around here, but are you the same weaver95 from a while back, or did someone give you this fark login recently?

Oh, yeah, I agree. My problem with this case is the fact that the dog was involved - I've heard several stories from my wife about animals that were medicated by their owners coming into the vet's office. People don't seem to realize that just because you'd give a 50 pound child something doesn't mean the same dose is fine for a 50 pound dog.

I believe our entire drug policy is a massive failure. All that government spending, all those arrests, all those drugs confiscated and destroyed and all that time spent and we achieve what? A minor increase in the street price of cocaine. ONE drug! heroin, ecstacy, cannabis, meth - all easily available, all cheap and all over the place. It's beyond stupid to say that if we just 'stay the course' we'll 'win' the drug war. we've been at this for nearly a century now and we're actually worse off than when we started.

Not to mention the fact that not all drugs are created equal. It's asinine to treat cannabis as if it were meth. Cannabis isn't addictive and it won't kill you. Meth is pure poison tho - and you can't quit using it once you start. But 20oz of cannabis gets you the same jail time as 20oz of meth. That's like equating a speeding ticket with someone who gets liquored up and wipes out a busload of nuns while drunk off his ass. It's time we recognized that some drugs are dangerous and some aren't and base our laws and policy decisions around reality rather than politics.

I'll tell you something else too - I believe that it's time to legalize cannabis. I believe in it to the point where I joined NORML. I put my money where my mouth is and joined a few months back.

I'm sick of DARE running around spreading propaganda. I'm tired of seeing people lose their property or going to jail over something that's no more dangerous than a six pack of lite beer.

Legalization of pot is one issue we're in 100% agreement on. It's sad that such a small percentage of the population agrees.

You probably remember that there have been rumors for at least 15 years about the cocaine traffic which flows through the airport in Mena, Arkansas. When Governor, Bill Clinton said there was nothing he could do about it, that it was a federal government problem. Funny thing was, one of the first things he did upon taking office as President was to cut the budget for the DEA. And, how many people know that it was contributions from drug smugglers that helped him both when governor and when running for President. In the mid 90's, it was revealed that an internional drug smuggler named Jorge Cabrera was invited to the White House in return for campaign contributions. There was a picture of the guy with the Clinton's at a White House Christmas party!

/people in government don't want to stop the flow of illegal drugs, while they make statements to the public that sound like they're anti-drug!

Actually, I think most of the population is either indifferent to or in favor of legalization of cannabis. The rest are either misinformed or simply useful pawns.

The misinformed we can educate. We can correct the mistakes made by paid government advocates. We can undo the damage, refocus our efforts and maybe make some actual progress.

But the fanatics will always be there. They're always going to be against anyone who tokes, smokes or drinks anything, any time, any where.
