Anslinger’s Drumbeat Goes On

The drumbeat of fear and lies started by Harry J. Anslinger is carried on today by a person named David Sack.  Mr. Sack is a psychiatrist and addiction specialist, and [my emphasis: be alert for a conflict of interest] is the chief executive of Promises Treatment Centers and Elements Behavioral Health in Southern California.   He wrote this as part of a longer piece for the Los Angeles Times.
“If the lack of health benefits and manifest risks aren’t enough to raise doubts about medical marijuana, consider basic questions of quality and dose. Although medical marijuana sometimes comes from “cleaner” sources than say a drug cartel, independent labs have found mold, synthetic insecticides and other toxins in pot.” Yes, but in a truly regulated, open market that will be addressed, won’t it? Quality will sell and ditchweed won’t. Next?

Molds such as Aspergillus can be highly dangerous to immune-compromised patients. And there is no way to accurately judge what a proper dose of dispensary marijuana would be. Please see what I said above. Next?

Habitual marijuana use is helpful for very few medical conditions. It can cause insidious changes in personality and attitude that are clear to everyone but the users themselves. There are nearly 400,000 emergency room visits per year due to marijuana use. {I apologize} BULLSHIT

Before we advocate for medical marijuana, and before another person doses himself with it, we have to ask: Is medical marijuana making us sick? No, it is not; you may be.
As always, I encourage you to read what the people who disagree with us are saying. It’s good to test to see if you understand what you say you believe, yes? That story is here.
