    We do it all the damn time.  Why is a non-harmful drug so fucking hard to deal with?

    The "rule of law" sure is great.

      but we know it's the "rule of money". Pharma spends megabucks countering every effort to de-regulate pot and to ease laws on other not-yet-legal drugs.

      The money has run policy for almost a hundred years regarding hemp.

        Drugs cause 100,00s of deaths each year.
        I love listening to the side effects of the drugs.
        Enbrel could cause cancer.
        Cholesterol drugs hinder important enzymes from the liver and kidneys and the small print states that lowering it will not decrease your fhances of heart attack or stroke.
        And if you anti depressent doesn't work, just add an anti pschotic. Why doesn't the anti depressent work in the first place?  

        Gitmo is a Concentration Camp. Not a Detention Center. Torture happens at Concentration Camps. Torture happens at Gitmo. How much further will US values fall? Where is YOUR outrage at what the United States does in OUR names?

          Yes, I know there is a preview, but I often miss the errors.

          •  Medicine has it all wrong. (4+ / 0-)

            GABA - gamma amino butyric acid - works for anxiety. Holy Basil/tulsi cuts cortisol, hence stress. St. John's Wort works for many for depression, and if that doesn't work, the DHA fraction in fish oil and vitamin D3 work too.

            Brain biochemistry can be safely tweaked with supplements that have been used for hundreds, or in some cases, thousands of years. But using contemporary drugs for the same applications can bring on unwanted side effects.

            All for the sake of profit.
