What’s more dangerous than being really sick?
Being really sick and not knowing it! The patient, not knowing he is sick continues on in his unhealthy lifestyle until terminal symptoms begin to manifest themselves and it’s even now, probably already too late for a recovery.
Point-in-case? America is really sick and doesn’t know it!
The recent nationwide PEW poll published in the L.A. Times – stating that the public favors legalization of marijuana, proves that.
That poll has been successful, because of the deceitful manipulation and hiding of the facts, by legalizers, with the help of the treacherous Lamestream media, presenting marijuana as medicinal, and less harmful than previously thought.
Though users are in denial, the deleterious effects of marijuana usage are now, well-established in medical circles, but facts (with a little help from the dangerous lamestream media) seem to only confuse ….
Although more casual usage is believed to be less harmful according to many studies, this is not so, but as it took decades to scientifically prove the damage done by tobacco, it’s likely to be a similar scenario with marijuana.
Families whose children have slipped into using marijuana know full well, the damage done to loved ones!
Until the late 1990’s, there had been little attention paid to marijuana in medical journals, largely because of studies done in the 1960’s that showed the drug to be relatively harmless. Many of these studies were begun with the goal of proving pot to be harmless, financed by evil men with a destructive agenda.
More recent legitimate studies show heavy marijuana usage – 8 or more times a month – to have serious health physical and psychological consequences – heavy users as well are even more susceptible to:
- short term memory loss
- damage to the lungs
- psychological effects
- adverse effects on youth brain development
Regarding this L.A. Times poll, should America really legalize another debilitating psychoactive drug?
A more honest poll would have asked instead: do you support legalization in your own community increasing entitlements and more social problems – additional health care costs, sustained depression, loss of ambition and access to heavily addictive drugs etc., … just so the highly partisan Democratic/progressive legislatures running Colorado and Washington can pretend that they are boosting their tax-and-drug revenues?
What’s wrong with waiting for science to show the actual impact of the radical increase in smoking marijuana with a much higher THC content? That it’s hovering around 20 times higher than the “weed” of the 60’s & early 70’s (when it was thought to be relatively harmless) will surely have a far-reaching, dangerous impact.
On one hand, we, as ‘preventionists’, (with the good of the people at heart) try to get the information out to the public, but the venue is not open to us ….. media power is closely guarded, and we fail in our efforts ….
But even of more import, is the fact that drugs are ONLY a small part of the picture!
If one is educated in the situation with drugs, and emotionally involved as well, it’s unlikely even we ‘preventionists’ will see the larger picture — that America has any number of serious illnesses, any of which, can and most likely will be terminal! It’s not just our children who will suffer. All of America is on it’s deathbed . . . . and few of us even see it! We’re about to lose our entire nation and in that America is the world’s last best hope ………
Right about now, . . . if I hadn’t read the end of the book, I’d be really worried!
