Note the time that article was posted. This is how this guy spends Saturday night.

And how late he stayed up!
He's going to have bags under his eyes for his pre-church College Republicans meeting today.

When was the last time your pharmacy lit up a fancy LED marquee or advertised in your favorite "alternative" publication about the latest "special" on, say, your blood pressure, cholesterol or ADHD meds?
Surely you remember the last time your physician advertised various colorfully named "strains" of antibiotics for you to whiff and sniff and swirl around your olfactory glands like the bouquet of fine wine.


As I was reading this part of the article, an advertisement for cialis came on....so, yeah.  apparently this guy has forgotten about the direct marketing of boner pills, blood pressure medication and even plastic surgery services.  it's not at all unusual in our culture...so why biatch about it for cannabis and ONLY when it comes to cannabis?

Only the USA and New Zealand allow that sort of stuff,oddly enough. You won't see ads in Europe like "I'm great, thanks to myrexulpram, what the hell is wrong with you? ask your doctor about it today!"

He does make something of a prima facie point, no there aren't "designer strains" of antibiotics, but we sure as shiat get bombarded with the latest from Pfizer, etc. As a deeper point, however, while I do believe that marijuana is very helpful for some medical conditions, I must concede that that is WIDELY abused. My arm hurts. I'm sad. Need prescription pot. It's a bit of a sham for many. But then, I am of the opinion that it ought to be legally available to any adult, so that abuse of the medical system doesn't really bother me.

The political speech argument was always ridiculous. Imagine if 10,000 underage drinkers marched on Norlin quad armed with frosty kegs, bottles of vodka, tequila and whiskey, even Goldschlager, Jagermeister and other syrupy, kid-stuff monstrosities to demand an end to drinking-age laws. Would you thrust a fist skyward in solidarity with such brave First Amendment martyrs [?]

Maybe? How young are we talking about? 18 or 19 wouldn't be so bad.

Drinking age is 18 in Germany, and here is what I observed:

1. 18 year olds are farking stupid
2. 21 year olds SLIGHTLY less so
3. Drinking age is arbitrary
4. 18 year old girls have no idea what the difference between "Classy eveningwear" and "skanky whoredom" is.
 
2013-04-14 09:42:44 AM  
If there were significant differences in how different antibiotics tasted or made us immediately feel then yes, I imagine we would likely see those kinds of displays in the pharmacies.

Not to mention Mr. Clay Evans provides no argument or evidence that protected political speech is somehow incompatible with enjoyment, parties, or anything else he hates. He just assumes that to be true. And its NOT. The protection of political speech is about all of those things too. When you outlaw "fun," having the audacity to enjoy oneself becomes an inherently political act, Mr. Evans. You have no one but your own Legislature to blame for creating a problem that did not and does not have to exist in the first place.

Pharmacies don't have to have marquees and LED signs to push their products. It seems Mr. Evans is either completely unaware of this problem (doubtful), or logically, all prescription drugs are a "ruse" since 1 in 5 use them for non-medical purposes. Which is is, Mr. Evans?

MJ is considered schedule 1 because it allegedly has high abuse potential and no medical indication. Cocaine is considered schedule 2 because it has high abuse potential but has medical uses (used by ear nose and throat docs in sinus surgeries as it is a powerful anesthetic and vasoconstrictor).

From the education films I've seen, apparently it seems to be schedule I because it makes black guys go all "ooga booga, where da white wimmins at?" and makes other people play the piano extremely fast before jumping out of a window.

No, but they advertise on TV, Newspaper, Magazines, and radio about how their pills will make your ass fall out after it cures your public insecurity.  Big Pharma can waltz into schools and drug the child populous.. but no, they don't have a neon sign.

Super Chronic: If there were significant differences in how different antibiotics tasted or made us immediately feel then yes, I imagine we would likely see those kinds of displays in the pharmacies.


I recall some studies on cigarettes, snack-foods,  and other brands where consumption makes one "feel good". It was important that they have distinctive tastes because because consumers assign a causal role from the taste to the effect. In particular cigarettes fall into equivalence classes with respect to strength but brand loyalty is fierce.

I.e. people grow to like a taste because they like the effects and think the taste causes the effects while its just a symbol that the effects are likely.

So I expect a lot of confusion between taste and quality (whatever that means) in the growing mj market, particularly considering that the judgments are made by stoned people.

Anybody can get medical marijuana in Colorado.... all it takes is a call to your friendly Weed Dr, who will perform a house call to come treat your altitude sickness, give you weed, an oxygen generator, and then bill it all to your health insurance

Or so I hear.

Quality is not always determined by taste.  Generally, it is a huge indicator to potency, but not always.  Just depends on the strain.  Then you have Sativa Vs. Indica where effects and tastes are different, so there's that.

I do NOT doubt that it helps many people. My only point is that a lot of "medical" patients just want to get high. Like anything else in life, that system can be abused. And it often is. That's all I'm saying. I have PERSONALLY illegally acquired marijuana for my brother in law's father as he was dying of cancer. It helped him keep his appetite up. He's resting in peace now, but I know for a fact that marijuana CAN be medicinal for many people and in his case, well it made his last year on this planet somewhat more bearable. I just doubt that the bulk of people with grow cards or however that works (not legal at all in PA, so not familiar with the specifics) TRULY "NEED" it. Some do, no doubt. But most, I suspect just want to get high. Which is perfectly fine by me, it's less dangerous than alcohol or tobacco (the two substance that gave my brother in law's father cancer in the first place).

Interestingly, this is the area where my mom is an expert, so you're talking to the right guy.  She did lab experiments on rats for her Ph.D. thesis.  (She went back for the doctorate when I was a teenager, so I was able to become somewhat conversant in the story.)  And yes, you're basically right, at least when rats are involved, and it's been extrapolated to humans -- and it doesn't even have to be a causal relationship between the food and the pleasure sensation.  I guess it's kind of intuitive, basically the opposite of an aversion (you eat something and then puke, you wind up disliking that food even if it wasn't what made you puke).
