    a lot of the perception out there about cannabis is based on assumptions than actual science.

    beliefs like yours are directly traceable to the lack of scientific studies on cannabis compared to tobacco or alcohol.

    Perhaps if the DEA would let our own researchers study this plant, we wouldn't have debates like this.

    but the feds and law enforcement PREFER ignorance, because the truth about cannabis is a disinfectant, like sunlight.

    witness the GOPranos...rethugs....Paul Wolfowitz: "If they fuck with me or Shaha, I have enough on them to fuck them too."

    •  My beliefs are based on smoking pot (0+ / 0-)

      and a lot of it; and the effects on all of my friends who I used to smoke with.  But I haven't smoked recently, so maybe the effects are different now?

      I'm starting to feel America again.
