What was that?

I mistakenly believed the Drug Enforcement Agency listed marijuana as a schedule 1 substance because of sound scientific proof.

How did the most gullible man in America get his MD?

"Misleading"?

How about "lying"?

Marijuana, specifically its classification as a schedule 1 drug under the CSA.

It always bothered me that he took such an ignorant anti-weed stance.  All of his other reporting is generally well informed and content full.

Sanjay Gupta has been a parrot and a tool as long as he's been at CNN.  If you don't bother to keep up with the current state of medical research, you have no business becoming a doctor.  If you don't bother to check your sources when you spout your mouth to the world, you have no business becoming a reporter.  He doesn't do either, and I wouldn't be upset to see him go.

I'm relatively sure Dr. Gupta is not a pathological liar.

Heck, I'VE known the DEA's position on marijuana has been bullshiat for ages and I'm not ever a doctor.

Considering that it's a Fark headline, I'm guessing that the exact opposite thing happened.

To be fair, us crackers did kinda show up in his country and act like we owned the place a few hundred years ago.

The medical profession is indoctrinated to hate weed and love big pharma; at least they were for a very long time.  It's not all surprising to see a doctor just now coming to grips with the lack of science behind the schedule 1 classification because they're trained not to question it, even though the scientific misclassification has been plainly evident for decades, and rather than try to substantiate the finding, the DEA has done everything in its power to prevent studies for fear of undercutting the schedule 1 classification ever since Nixon's drug commission recommended decriminalizing marijuana.
 
2013-08-08 12:20:03 PM  
He is utterly and completely full of horse crap.

If you've been a long time tool, don't come out and claim you were "misled", you tool.

How many "doctors" lied about obamacare being so wonderful? If it is so great why are the legislators and their staffs exempt. You'd think they'd want to show the constituents how great it is and lead by example. I guess the ruling class doesn't have to play by the rules!
October is right around the corner. Now is the chance for you 27 year olds and above to "pay you fair share"
Dr. Sanjay is a dem and an obamoron. I expect nothing more than lies from him.

Sometimes I'm a doctor between 1:00 and 3:00, but usually I have errands to run.

If the only way somebody can truly be supportive of a policy is by being (one of) the first person to support it, change will never happen.

Yeah, no. Fox doesn't issue corrections or retractions and its personalities don't recant when they're caught outright lying.

Better than nothing, at least he's got the intellectual honesty to admit it, unlike the entire DEA and it's minions and related industries.

The tide is turning, but the anti-weed Pants-Wetters are using every dirty trick in the book in a last-gasp attempt to salvage the shred of meaning in their lives - their jobs as Anti Drug Warriors.

Here's a good explanation of the making of a criminal class:  http://www.drugwarrant.com/articles/why-is-marijuana-illegal/">http:/ /www.drugwarrant.com/articles/why-is-marijuana-illegal/

As to the treatment guy:  If he was intellectually honest, he'd admit that most of his people needing treatment have problems far beyond their weed usage - usually the drugs are self medication covering a myriad of other problems, usually between the headphones.

MonoChango: So has CNN officially fallen to the level of FOXnews?


Well, they hired a bunch of Murdoch cast-offs then veered hard right. Only problem is that, no matter how much derp they herp, they are still part of the lame-stream media and have only hurt themselves.

CNN's investigative reporter now consults on the Newsroom.

You know, the voices you hear in your head aren't very bright, and you should try not listening to them. I understand that part of having a mental illness is not being able to understand that you have a mental illness, but go get some help. We care.

bmwericus: Better than nothing, at least he's got the intellectual honesty to admit it, unlike the entire DEA and it's minions and related industries.


Yep, that's the same way I feel. He admitted he was wrong and I do admire him for that. If you continue to shun him for his past beliefs, it provides no motivation to admit when you were wrong.

Why we're so insistent on removing people's coping mechanisms I'll never understand.  Those coping mechanisms are what prevent us from killing each other on a daily basis.

The DEA is a government agency that knowingly and systematically lies about marijuana to maintain and increase its funding.  It should be shuttered.

I'm having surgery in 2 weeks, I know they'll give me vicodin afterwards for the pain.  I don't want it, I'd rather use pot, but thanks to my job, I can't.

Yeah, publicly admitting that you were wrong and apologizing for the harms caused by that stance is so easy.

If you do it only after you know you are not sticking your head out, if you raise the battle flag only when you are surrounded by supporters, if you take a stand against Germany only after they bomb Pearl Harbor, should you be commended for your bravery?

Tens of thousands of people are in jail right now for simple possession, thanks to DEA appeasers like Dr Gupta.

So many people have had their lives ruined by the Cannabis prohibition while "good" people have stood idly by.  Dr. Gupta as recently as four years ago publicly reinforced the DEA position.

As for you two, Serious Black and ecl, this thread is about a long overdue change in national policy, not about your farking lack of a sense of humor.
