Accuracy in Media

Potheads defend their addiction by insisting that marijuana can make people lazy, dumb or hungry, but not violent. However, the case of Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the Canadian Islamic terrorist killer, proves otherwise.

Zehaf-Bibeau was an Islamist, as well as a pothead. In another notorious case of jihad, one of the Boston Marathon bombers, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was not only a dope smoker but a dealer.

It appears that Dzhokhar’s brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev was implicated in a Jewish triple murder case in which thousands of dollars’ worth of marijuana and money were left covering the bodies. All three victims’ throats were slashed.

It may be too early to draw a direct connection between jihad, marijuana, and mass murder, but it is worth considering whether consumption of the drug can alter the mind to such an extent that jihad becomes appealing to some mentally unstable individuals.

Clearly, a number of factors were at work in the case of the Tsarnaev brothers, who were born in the former Soviet Union and attended a mosque in the Boston area. The older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was fascinated by the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a Russian forgery about a Jewish plot to take over the world, and he “took an interest” in the Alex Jones website Infowars, which carries Russian disinformation. But their involvement in the marijuana business appears to have been very deep.

We also have the case of Michael Brown, the black thug who was shot and killed in Ferguson, Missouri. An autopsy and toxicology report finds that he had marijuana in his system and had been a user for some time.

There is no hint of jihad here, only anti-police violence. But the role of marijuana in this violent confrontation deserves extensive coverage, not just a footnote. Trayvon Martin, the black juvenile delinquent shot and killed after he assaulted anti-crime activist George Zimmerman, also smoked marijuana regularly.

The latest White House fence-jumper, Dominic Adesanya, had a “substance abuse” problem as well. A clearly deranged individual, he told officials he smoked marijuana “sometimes, but not everyday.”

Do we see a pattern here?

Other such cases involving marijuana and violence include Jerad and Amanda Miller, who killed two cops; Maryland mall shooter Darion Aguilar; would-be Obama assassin Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez; Pentagon shooter John Patrick Bedell; killer student Jeff Weise; child killer Joseph Smith; and Vladimir Baptiste, a psychotic pot user who drove his truck through the headquarters of WMAR-TV in Towson, Maryland.

Yet, our media keep insisting that marijuana is a harmless drug with beneficial medical properties, and that dopers aren’t aggressive people.

The Canadian case should be a wake-up call.

A recent convert to Islam once known as Michael Joseph Hall, Canadian Islamic terrorist Michael Zehaf-Bibeau was charged with marijuana possession on at least two occasions. He was also charged at one time with possession of PCP, with side effects including hallucinations and delirium.

Canada’s Globe and Mail newspaper quotes a friend by the name of Dave Bathurst as saying Zehaf-Bibeau frequently talked about Shaytan in the world—“an Arabic term for devils and demons.”

Bathurst said he thought Zehaf-Bibveau was mentally ill, a distinct possibility because of his marijuana use. But the shooting rampage could have been a direct result of his interpretation of the Koran, the Muslim Holy book. Or perhaps it was a combination of both factors.

Yet, the CBC reports that his neighbors said “they remember Zehaf-Bibeau as a sweet boy, and are in shock at the news.”

The transformation of a “sweet boy” into a maniac, psychotic, or jihadist killer can happen under the influence of a mind-altering substance like marijuana.

In the Michael Brown case, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has run a story saying his toxicology report found a level of THC, the main active ingredient in marijuana, at 12 nanograms per milliliter of blood. “Levels of inactive ingredients of the drug were also detected in Brown’s blood and urine,” the paper said.

In other words, Brown was a marijuana abuser, quite possibly an addict.

The paper confirmed this, saying, “Pathologists who read the toxicology report said Brown probably had used marijuana within a few hours of his death. There were also indications that Brown was a habitual user. An undisclosed amount of the drug was recovered from his body. A surveillance video taken the same day appears to show Brown stealing cigarillos from a convenience store. The tobacco in the flavored small cigars is known to be easily replaced with marijuana leaves, as shown in YouTube videos and in cannabis literature.”

Brown had stolen a box of Swisher Sweet cigars.

A Swisher Sweet cigar—also known as a cigarillo—that has been re-rolled with marijuana is called a blunt. High Times magazine has highlighted the seven best cigars or cigarillos to use, making it easier for thugs to know what brand to steal.

The paper noted that Brown’s active level of THC was more than twice what authorities in Colorado have set as the legal limit on marijuana in a driver’s bloodstream. Colorado sets that level at 5 nanograms per milliliter.

However, the paper went on to say that “While alcohol has a direct influence on violent behavior, marijuana does not increase the odds of any type of aggression, according to a study published this year in the journal Addictive Behaviors.”

This claim in the newspaper account is in dispute. The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute at the University of Washington says the evidence indicates that while marijuana usually has a sedating effect on most users, “sometimes when marijuana is used it can cause fear, anxiety, panic or paranoia, which can result in an aggressive outburst.”

The UPI wire service reports that a Dutch study on the effects of marijuana use on teenagers found “the higher the frequency and amount of marijuana use, the more aggressive behavior the teenager showed.”

However, the pro-marijuana movement is hoping that the public doesn’t draw a connection between marijuana and violence, and is counting on more legislative victories.

Amy Ronshausen, Interim Deputy Director of Save Our Society From Drugs, reports that “As Election Day approaches, several states are facing ballot initiatives to either legalize marijuana as so-called medicine or for recreational purposes.” These include:

But the potheads are well-funded. “Our movement to end prohibition is gaining momentum,” says the Coalition for Cannabis Policy Reform. “Colorado and Washington have succeeded in passing measures that legalize cannabis.”

The group’s spokesperson is Dale Sky Jones, identified as “Executive Chancellor of Oaksterdam University.”

Oaksterdam University, which calls itself “America’s first cannabis college,” teaches “students” how to grow dope. One of the instructors is known as “Miss Bliss,” and specializes in creating marijuana “edibles.”

In Colorado, where dope has been legalized, such edibles have resulted in a murder and a student jumping to his death.

Oaksterdam “college” even offers advice on rolling blunts using Michael Brown’s favorite Swisher Sweet cigars.

    Ezekiel 12 King James Version (KJV)

    12 The word of the Lord also came unto me, saying,

    2 Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have
    eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they
    are a rebellious house.

    3 Therefore, thou son of man, prepare thee stuff for removing, and remove by day in their sight; and thou shalt remove from thy place to another place in their sight: it may be they will consider, though they be a rebellious
    house.

    4 Then shalt thou bring forth thy stuff by day in their sight, as stuff for
    removing: and thou shalt go forth at even in their sight, as they that
    go forth into captivity.

    5 Dig thou through the wall in their sight, and carry out thereby.

    6 In their sight shalt thou bear it upon thy shoulders, and carry it forth
    in the twilight: thou shalt cover thy face, that thou see not the
    ground: for I have set thee for a sign unto the house of Israel.

    7 And I did so as I was commanded: I brought forth my stuff by day, as stuff
    for captivity, and in the even I digged through the wall with mine hand;
    I brought it forth in the twilight, and I bare it upon my shoulder in
    their sight.

    8 And in the morning came the word of the Lord unto me, saying,

    9 Son of man, hath not the house of Israel, the rebellious house, said unto thee, What doest thou?

    10 Say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; This burden concerneth the prince in Jerusalem, and all the house of Israel that are among them.

    11 Say, I am your sign: like as I have done, so shall it be done unto them: they shall remove and go into captivity.

    12 And the prince that is among them shall bear upon his shoulder in the
    twilight, and shall go forth: they shall dig through the wall to carry
    out thereby: he shall cover his face, that he see not the ground with
    his eyes.

    13 My net also will I spread upon him, and he shall be taken in my snare: and
    I will bring him to Babylon to the land of the Chaldeans; yet shall he
    not see it, though he shall die there.

    14 And I will scatter toward every wind all that are about him to help him,
    and all his bands; and I will draw out the sword after them.

    15 And they shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall scatter them among the nations, and disperse them in the countries.

    16 But I will leave a few men of them from the sword, from the famine, and
    from the pestilence; that they may declare all their abominations among
    the heathen whither they come; and they shall know that I am the Lord.

    17 Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying,

    18 Son of man, eat thy bread with quaking, and drink thy water with trembling and with carefulness;

    19 And say unto the people of the land, Thus saith the Lord God
    of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and of the land of Israel; They shall
    eat their bread with carefulness, and drink their water with
    astonishment, that her land may be desolate from all that is therein,
    because of the violence of all them that dwell therein.

    20 And the cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and the land shall be desolate; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.

    21 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

    22 Son of man, what is that proverb that ye have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision faileth?

    23 Tell them therefore, Thus saith the Lord God;
    I will make this proverb to cease, and they shall no more use it as a
    proverb in Israel; but say unto them, The days are at hand, and the
    effect of every vision.

    24 For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel.

    25 For I am the Lord: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord God.

    26 Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying.

    27 Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, The vision that he
    seeth is for many days to come, and he prophesieth of the times that are
    far off.

    28 Therefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, saith the Lord God.

    Utter nonsense. Your brand of “reefer madness” is dying out. You can make up all the nonsensical falsehoods about marijuana to support your right-wing agenda you want, but at the end of the day SCIENCE and the will of the people will overcome. Marijuana prohibition is nothing more than a revenue stream for the DEA, other law enforcement, and of course the private prison industry. And its no secret that Big Pharma funds nearly every marijuana prohibitionist organization out there.

  • disqus_smWiOrvPtd

    It’s not true that marijuana users come from all walks of life. Marijuana use can be divided into two classes of people. Those who respect higher authority and those who don’t. There is a walk of life that does honor and submit to the laws of states/country. It used to be the U.S. marine’s wouldn’t allow a man to join, if they had smoked marijuana. So when jokers like you try to argue that doctor’s, lawyers, business professionals and even teachers are pot smokers, you are slithering and slying trying imply that there are well respected authorities who would never have disregard for the laws (a lawyer being the worst), when it is obvious that these would have no respect for the authority of their client, patient, etc.

    Yes, I am sure your right! Presidents have admitted to it along with many other now retired individuals involved with the justice system. Only bad people use cannabis and only good people use alcohol, tobacco, and pain killers since they are all legal. Thanks for setting me straight with your infinite wisdom and knowledge. If you really think there is no way anyone of them has ever used cannabis then maybe it’s time for you to quit drinking.

  • stellarvoyager

    The Islamic terror group ISIS is rabidly anti-cannabis. They have destroyed entire cannabis crops in Syria, and executed those who are caught with any amount of cannabis. They are joined by other jihadists like Hamas, who also executes anyone caught with any amount of weed. So by the “logic” of this article, that means that prohibitionists are terrorists. And for people like Cliff Kincaid and the other bigoted scum like him, the comparison isn’t that far off the mark.

    So when the facts are laid out, it looks like prohibitionists and hard-right have a lot more in common with ISIS and Hamas than they do with mainstream cannabis users. That is why the hard-core religious right in this country are properly referred to as the “American Taliban.” They are ideologically indistinguishable, except for the particular religious texts on which their ideology is based. They want to punish and hurt those who don’t submit. There is no love in that ideology, only hate, fear, racism and bigotry. It is spiritually bankrupt, and morally reprehensible. Terrorists, all of them, who have caused needless death and suffering of millions of peaceful peoples worldwide.

  • disqus_smWiOrvPtd

    No one here claims to be perfect, and what gives you the right to cast stones and or judge others. Propaganda is what politicians use to keep feeding lies about a plant that in all of recorded medical history has never directly taken a life. If people want to indulge in cannabis as consenting adults, then they have that right. Believing in the father, the son, and the Holy Spirit does not give you the right to take shots at people like in your replies to people in this forum. You may want to look a little further into your allegations of Propaganda and find out who actually supports legalization before you try and tear down my comments. You are going to find out that many respectable people say it’s time to end the war on drugs, and many of them fighting for it are those that I mentioned in my first statement. If you choose to not check into then that’s okay too, but make sure you know what it is your talking about before replying and doing the hypocritical thing like using your propaganda to say we’ll educated people with jobs in law enforcement and health care would not use cannabis or try to help get it legalized.

    Yes the bible talks about mans law, and the law of the father, and its real easy to use scripture to condemn others and try to sound self righteous, and its those individuals who turn people away from Christianity. Jesus spoke God’s word, and he believed in abiding by the father’s word, but he did not use the father’s words the way that this guy is using it to damn everyone to hell. There are many who mislead people into thinking that all Christians think they have the right use God’s words to belittle and look down on others. smWiOrvPtd happens to be one of those people.

You contradict yourself by speaking of God and posting his words while taking shots at people who you think are beneath you since they do not share your outdated ideology on the war on drugs. The father created us all equal and perfect in his eyes, and when he did that he made us with cannabanoid receptors that allows the body to use cannabis in beneficial ways, like cancer for instance. Look up the research and see, don’t just take the word of those who profit from prohibition that feed lies like the so called slithering snake you keep mentioning. When Nixon was in office his advisors told him prohibition was not the right thing but he did it for political gain, not because God told him too. Decades worth of research at universities was wiped out cause he forced them to get rid of all beneficial research dealing with cannabis. If your not willing to find out the truth, then your exactly what you claim everyone else to be who is in favor of ending prohibition.

  • disqus_smWiOrvPtd

    God created rattlesnakes in their natural form, does that mean they are good for you? Huh, my sinner friend? Cannabis legalization in actuality, is simply a way for the government to control YOU more. It is another anti-thesis in the liberal marxist dialectic. Create the chaos, so the government can come in with the solution, which is always more money and more control. You are just a useful idiot in their game. Every time one of their useful idiots comes up to bat and manages to hit the ball, they create a bigger gulag and a bigger government for the rest of us.

    What you don’t understand, is that this IS the law of the Bible. You cannot run from God’s system of righteousness. The more sinful a people become, the more God will allow judgment to fall: e.g. captivity. You can deny all you want that dope is a sin, but God’s system reveals it. There will be more control over the people, less freedom.

    You also don’t understand, that those who are doing the PROMOTING of sin, God does not deal with favorably.

    The BIble says: “Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!”
    Matt 18:7

    Woe, indeed. Madeline O’Hair managed to convince the courts to remove prayer from schools. Do you know how she died?

    I think you are confused. Prohibition is government control. In one comment you talk about obeying man and God’s law, and now you say they want to legalize to control us. You need to stick to one side or the other.

  • disqus_smWiOrvPtd

    I’m taking about control in the sense of collecting records on you, compliance, etc. Medical Marijuana for example, they initially get the data on you to make sure you are in compliance. Then 2 years later they pass a law where you can’t own a gun. Then 5 years later the EPA rules that your home is a HAZMAT site. And on and on. Once it starts, it never ends. People love their sin and God sends them off to captivity with the Babylonians.

    establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto
    the righteousness of God. “

    Yes I know, for everything I say you have a way to flip it and make it sound like what I believe is tearing me away from God, but no where in the bible does it say make cannabis and all other drugs illegal so when the people fight to have them legalized I shall strike them down.

    “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:15

    100% Truth: Reject the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior and your soul will fry like a sausage in an eternal fire. When Satan is your only hope, it will be too late my sinner friend. Get on your knees TODAY and repent from your sin and trust in the only one who can save you — the Lord Jesus Christ — to lead you to salvation.

  • Ryan Borger

    So you believe a loving god knowingly created people that he would send to be tortured for eternity for not believing in him. And he knowingly created his own nemesis that he sent to oversee the place of eternal torture he created knowing he would send those there that refused to believe on bad evidence. You are the worst kind of idiot. You willfully ignore logic and commonsense and grasp onto your indoctrination fueled by hysteria, insanity, and the beliefs of your ancestors.

    The religious fog of indoctrination is a thick sticky pea soup that envelopes your brain so badly it takes a “miracle” to find a way out of it into the bright light of truth and logic..

  • Ryan Borger

    You are as wrong on cannabis as you are on religion. That is a crapload of wrong in one neat insane package there bub.

  • AndRebecca

    Are you talking about me? Do you think what I have said here isn’t true? Does smoking weed help you stay delusional? Smoking marijuana is like giving yourself a chemical lobotomy. You just don’t know which part of the brain is going to be affected by it. Will you have a good lobotomy or a bad lobotomy? If you don’t know your history or even the present, that doesn’t make me the one with the with the problem. Dude, get a handle on it. It is not too late for some relief.

  • AndRebecca

    Scary, isn’t it? Fortunately for us, not that many doctors are on this stuff. Teachers, yes. That’s one of the many reasons why kids don’t learn today.

  • shane

    Lack of parent involvement is the reasons kids are not learning today. I know, the next comment that will be made is cause the parents are high right? Stop blaming everything else and start blaming the individuals who are the issue. Responsible adults are capable of doing what they want responsibly. Just as those who drink wine when they choose too.

  • AndRebecca

    Well the next comment wasn’t going to be that the parents are high, but that’s a good one. Responsible adults do not do irresponsible things like smoke pot. Irresponsible adults do that.

  • AndRebecca

    Yeah right, and the Taliban are destroying the opium crops in Afghanistan. And you get daily reports on it. Your chemical lobotomy is working out well for you.

  • AndRebecca

    Are you saying what I stated above is wrong? Loughner wasn’t a pothead? The O.K. City bombers didn’t smoke pot while plotting? And the rest isn’t true? What planet are you living on?

  • shane

    So the right thing to keep doing is expect drug dealers to ID before selling product and trust them to keep it out of the hands of children? The past 40 years has proved it does not work. Have a beer or a glass of wine though and that’s okay. Just cause its legal does not mean it should be okay. Who are you by the way to be able to tell someone what they are doing is right or wrong? Is it your so called moral compass? An opinion on what you think is right does not mean it is the right way. Especially if you do not take into account the deception that made cannabis illegal in the first place with all the new found evidence and even the true facts about it when it was made illegal.

  • stellarvoyager

    When are you bigots going to get it through your thick skulls that a legal, regulated cannabis market will divert revenues from the cartels, to American businesses and state governments?

  • Ryan Borger

    If your god is omnipotent there is no such thing as free will. That is called predestination. It means that your god enjoys knowingly creating things he is going to torture for an eternity for not believing in him on bad evidence.

    After all the only unforgivable sin is not believing that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father, and had to rape his own mother so he could be born, can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.

  • AndRebecca

    Who am I to make a judgment about anything? I am a person with the God given ability to make judgments. What is wrong with your ability to judge? When you get to a stop light do you say, I’m an adult, I can decide if I want to stop or not? Plenty of people out there do just that. Pot has been illegal ever since the Left started pushing it in this country. It had been around for years, but only lowlifes smoked it, so nobody cared. When it started to become available to the average teenager was when the crackdown came. I suppose we should go with the flow, as they say, and forget about ending up in the sewer. What’s wrong with a sewer, after all? After all a sewer is only a bad place if someone makes a judgment about it, otherwise it is just fine, right? I am sorry you have your problem.

  • disqus_smWiOrvPtd

    I blame the cultural marxists who have been intentionally promoting immorality since the 1930’s to turn American into a socialist nation AND the people who have fallen into drinking their Kool-Aid. Seriously, like men gave their LIVES, so that reprobates could smoke cannabis. Unthankful.

  • disqus_smWiOrvPtd

    Karl Marx, on whom humanism, and every other ‘ism’ is built upon has done wonders for you, I can tell. That is why they have had to use deceit to infiltrate their ideas into the culture, because it is so honest and true. They hold so much respect for the people, like Jonathan Gruber.

    So I guess presidents like George Washington and several other presidents were low life’s along with many of the well respected individuals in society who have smoked cannabis also. Like I said, read up on the facts and seek the truth. If you choose not to do that, then don’t waste people’s time with bullshit rhetoric and propaganda that no longer works. In no way have you given an intelligent answer on how we fix the current broken system either. Research the history as well and maybe you will learn a thing or two about the truth.

    I have seen the Lord Jesus Christ answer prayer so many times that I can say to you with the fullest 100% confidence that God is real and you are in trouble. A true Christian knows that he knows, because they have seen the evidence of faith. Haven’t you read the history of Christian martyrs? Christians put to death would sing hymns and mock their persecutors. The persecutors would go back to their rulers with their tails between their legs saying “their mocking us.” Why? Because Jesus is THE one true God. Richard Wurmbrand was beaten and tortured in communist prisons for a total of 14 years. The communists did not play. They did everything they possibly could to try and break him. All he had to do was deny his faith and he could be set free. At a Senate Hearing Wurmbrand testified: “I have been in Oslo. I went to a hospital. There were several physicians. I can give their names. I spoke with them
    about religion. In the beginning they said, “We are atheists,” and then they saw my body and I asked them what treatment do I need. They said:
    “About treatment, do not ask us. Ask only the one in whom we don’t believe, but who has kept you alive, because according to our medical books, you are dead. A man who has what you have, with four vertebras broken, cannot live. According to our medical books, you are dead. If you are alive, then the one in whom we don’t believe has kept you alive.”

    He is true and you are in trouble, if you choose to love your sin and not God. You will die holding onto what you love.

  • Ryan Borger

    So on average per year.. how many amputees would you say prayer has regrown limbs for? Here is your homework. Go find 3 people that met Jesus as a man and wrote about him. I’ve asked about 400 people this question in direct debates and not one has been able to name even 1. Learn the historicity of what you believe. I was a Christian for 35 years. Sorry but it is utter bs. You believe in a myth.

    If you have some sort of tangible proof that there is any sort of god.. please present it. There is none.

    Yes btw your all powerful god had to let you be damaged and close to death so he could save you from what he knew would happen to you before it happened… But he just wanted to see his loved creation be in extreme pain to “teach you a lesson”. Derp… Logic vomits in your general direction.

  • disqus_smWiOrvPtd

    No actually it is physically impossible to die from ingesting cannabis. It would take 1500lbs of raw cannabis smoked in 15 minutes to reach a toxic level. In liquid extract it would take 20 gallons ingested in 15 minutes. In other words… it is impossible to die from cannabis. If you think using cannabis is sinning that explains a lot. Your little book of myths even mentions it as Kanah Bosem. Educate your ignorant self before you judge other people. Cannabis could kill you but really it would be gravity and a heavy object. Drop a large bail of it on yourself maybe that would kill you. Someone did choke while trying to eat their stash when pulled over and died, so there is that. Of course the actual cause there is prohibition which forced him to swallow something your supposed creator made to avoid being locked in a cage. Derp.

  • Ryan Borger

    Which of course you attribute to your “faith” as if that is a good thing. Faith of course is the purposeful suspension of critical thinking in order to perpetuate a worldview that is not supported by facts, evidence, commonsense, or logic. It shouldn’t be a badge of honor, it should be an embarrassment. You are admitting in public that you ignore facts so you can continue to believe you’re going to get a mansion on a street of gold as soon as you die, and oh won’t it be glorious. You are like a child leaving out cookies and milk for Santa. You just “want” to believe. Silly.

  • Ryan Borger

    Why don’t you pray for me to stop? See how that works? Lmfao… Whose authority am I speaking to exactly? You are embarrassingly stupid. Like there is stupid, and there is stare at the ground so they don’t see you cracking up stupid.

  • disqus_smWiOrvPtd

    Modern critical thinking emanates from the cultural marxists in the 1930’s and is based on theories, not facts. It’s based on criticizing absolute truths until there are none in your own minds. American schools no longer teach facts in the classroom. In fact, consensus process where a group of people dialogue to find common ground, must abandon principle to find agreement. So it produces watered down “facts,” which are not facts at all, are they? If you study it out, critical thinking validates my illusion as fact, and your “facts” as an illusion. Everything you believe in is based on relativity, i.e., a perpetual “we’re discovering ourselves as we go along.” Any 3 year old can tell you that a rock is a rock. In your la, la land of marxist thought, a rock is the beginning of a long diatribe on how it is really not a rock. It’s quite deceitful (or ignorant) for you to use the word “facts,” because in reality you don’t believe in them. Its quite ignorant to call me silly.

    Awesome and what did schools teach about Cannabis? I think schooling is abysmal. I learned maybe 3% of what I know in school. You seem rather obsessed with Marxism, even though nothing I’ve said has anything to do with Marxism. If you are not free to ingest and use your body and mind as you desire, as long as you harm no one else, are you really free? No. Rocks should be illegal in your world as they can do someone harm by being struck by one, trying to swallow one, having a rock fall on you. Eating rocks would slowly destroy someones health, but we have yet to see anti rock legislation. You are a pawn in a pathological game of control.

    Now you have gone off the deep end. Your brain is fried. I don’t like the idea of living in a disgusting society, but you do. Like a spoiled brat, you are getting your way. You want to dirty your own nest. Have you heard of defining deviancy down? It is a Marxist concept. It is the way to bring Marxism to America through the social system. Legalizing pot is part of it. It is to control you, while letting you think otherwise. They teach this in sociology classes in college. You have been manipulated big time. Brainwashed.

    My family has struggled with substance abuse throughout the generations, and seeing it front hand with other of my parents, I can tell you that cannabis, or “dope” as you call it was not the reason they suffered with addiction. I am my own person and learned from their mistakes as best as I could. Cannabis has been used for medication since B.C. times and it’s proving again that it is an effective medicinal plant. Your body has endocannibanoid receptors and has shown the benefits from it. To tell people what they can and can’t do with their own bodies is not you or the government’s place, especially when it’s stopping severe seizures in children and killing brain tumors. If you have someone close to you suffering and going through issues that it helps with, would you be against them using cannabis for their issues and taking prescription pills that kill thousands, or would you be okay with them using cannabis?

  • AndRebecca

    You have given yourself a chemical lobotomy. What is bigoted about saying that? It’s true…The legal money is going to go to George Soros and the other anti-capitalist millionaires who backed all of the cannabis bills. As far as I know they are a part of the drug cartels. They certainly are against capitalism, so they don’t so it for capitalistic reasons or for the individual, which they don’t believe in. AND, it is the religious Left backing the terrorists. The Quakers and Unitarians, and so on, love the BDS. At least you do see a connection between drugs and terrorism. That is a start.

  • shane

    That’s funny, you sound like Kevin Sabet of Project SAM who is constantly spewing lies and using fear mongering to keep cartels profiting while the war on drugs ruins millions of lives, wastes tax dollars, and leaves it up to drug dealers when it comes to protecting our children. All their doing is making sure pharmaceutical companies keep killing thousands with the poisons they create and fear legalization because they know people would get away from their opiates. If you fight cannabis legalization and see nothing wrong with pharmaceutical companies pushing addictive substances and legally getting people hooked and think status quot on the war on drugs is working, then there is no reason to continue this conversation.

  • disqus_smWiOrvPtd

    The propaganda behind legalization of cannabis, emanates from the marxist ideology, so why wouldn’t I explain your own philosophy to you? They try to distance themselves in the U.S., because it is not a good association with the American people. Do you thin it a cowinkiedink that cannabis is legalized in socialist countries?

    Right, my brain is fried from the lies fed to me along with the ruined lives of those I am close too cause of what they do in their own home, which by the way is none of your damn business. You still have not said anything about how the war on drugs should be handled and fix the problem of cannabis and drug abuse being on a constant rise. Legalization is not the reason either. The reason is its more available now than ever before. Complaining and being against it is your right, just as it’s my right to favor legalization and treatment instead of incarceration. I can see your getting mad cause you have no answers as far as what should be done and resort to name calling. Get over your self righteousness and pull your head out of your (you know what) and come up with solutions instead of repeating all the lies that no longer work.

  • AndRebecca

    If you had such a horrible life, why are you still abusing yourself and blaming others who had absolutely nothing to do with your life? Why don’t you change? Why don’t you change and then help the miserable people you know to change, also?

  • AndRebecca

    Sorry Shane, but this is a line of bull. You can google search NORML and see they have been around for years and they take credit for any advances made in the legalization of pot. Plus, I happen to know one of the opiate users who has worked to legalize pot, in order to eventually get his opium legalized. One of the “police for pot” officers who made the rounds of Libertarian talk shows, a supposed ex-cop, now has a job in Colorado doing security for the pot sellers. That was his thing all along. It is about money, with no concerns for the dope smoking the stuff. I will search Kevin Sabet, though. He sounds like he has his head on straight.

  • shane

    Kevin Sabet is paid by pharmaceutical companies to fight legalization. With everything if you want to find the truth then just follow the money trail. It’s the same reason those who fight so hard for prohibition is cause financial in tress in keeping it illegal.

  • AndRebecca

    Smart is as smart does. If you act like a moron, you might as well be one. Morons don’t think there is anything wrong with smoking dope. Morons can’t help it if they are incapable of making judgments. The inability to make good judgments is pretty well the gold standard for a moron.

  • shane

    Not once did I say I had a horrible life. I know what happens to people who make mistakes , and the legal aftermath does not fit the crime. Someone choosing to use a substance does not mean they should be locked away and have a record follow them. If your not willing to look at the science and true reasons why we have prohibition, then you will never understand. The whole war on drugs has been built on lies and at the expense of the American people. I also never blamed anyone for anything that happened in my life. It’s the hand the Lord has dealt. I have a great job saving lives as a firefighter and EMT and many of us in the medical field and law enforcement see prohibition as more harmful then the drugs being used. I am on the front lines and see it quite often so it’s not like I am sitting here being an arm chair quarterback. Our own government owns 3 patents on cannabis so if it’s so dangerous why would they have those patents in the form of medicinal purposes? That’s fact.

  • AndRebecca

    I’m glad someone is paying Dr. Sabet. As a nurse, I’ve had the experience of working around many people in pain. Sick people are not left in pain, they are given pain killers that work, and many people who have severe illnesses do not experience much pain, so they are fine with fewer meds than one would expect. Since the Obama admin, that is changing a little. We hear more about not having granny on RX drugs. I just googled Kevin Sabet and he seems to be a sane psychiatrist. That’s very unusual. I noticed all the pro pot/anti-Sabet blogs are mostly leftist with a Libertarian one thrown in the mix.
    Do your addicted family members lean to the left?

  • AndRebecca

    My bad behavior and that of my relatives? Get off your high horse lady and peek into your own life. I doubt it seriously you see a halo over your head when you look in the mirror. Your just like the rest of the snobby snot nose hypocrites who have skeletons in their own closet and yet want to judge others. Say what you want, at the end of the day it won’t change my views on how much better we can do than counting on drug dealers to keep drugs out of our children’s hands or keep letting lives get ruined with this brain washing war on drugs you all seem to think is the right thing to do. The best part is those who make laws have admitted to doing drugs themselves but that’s okay, close minded individuals like yourself can let that go cause they are white collar crooks stealing from you and not the drug addict stigma that keeps you up at night cause a tv commercial or television show shows you what a drug user is supposed to look like.

  • shane

    And for a guy who has a great job, a 3.8 GPA in the studies of information systems and technology, a father of 4, husband to a beautiful wife, and thinks independent of political party lines I would say I am doing pretty damn good with what you call a fried brain.

  • shane

    No use Ryan, she argues something she knows nothing about, offers no solutions to the failed prohibition and war on drugs, and refuses to look at research studies. She also thinks opiates made in a pharmaceutical lab are safer than a natural plant that mother nature has provided. She also claims to be a nurse, but I have never heard of a nurse who ignores any type of positive research and cares so little for others. She also does a really good job of name calling and and degrading when she is asked about facts compared to reefer madness rhetoric and the lies we have been fed for the last 50 years. Any police officer like those from Law Enforcement Against Prohibition are also wanna be drug addicts pushing for legalization according to the comments she has made when replying to my comments. I would say it’s like talking to a wall, but after reading her comments I now feel dumber and would rather speak to the wall. At least the wall doesn’t lie and resort to degrading people and their family members.

  • Ryan Borger

    Fairly certain some of the morons that reply like that are paid to do so. Either way they are going to have a bad time soon when it is legal Nationwide in less than 5 years. 😉

  • AndRebecca

    Yes, I admit I have a closed mind toward legalizing a horrible drug. The assassin drug. We have more than enough crime in this country now. And the people who wrote the above article are right. And you have a whole rationale for your bad behavior which extends beyond addiction to this drug. You know it and I know it. Too bad you don’t want to grow up. Again, thanks to letting me know about Kevin Sabet, a real hero. Here’s one for you “The Emergence of Deviant Minorities,” a communist textbook used in the schools to promote evil behavior in order to take away individualism from the American people. Pot use is part of the plan. Read the book, if you think you are capable of understanding it. I make judgments because I have a brain. I can’t help it. I was born with a great brain. It’s genetic. And I love to get on the nerves of people who can’t think. You need to be irritated. You accept lowlife living.

  • shane

    Oh don’t worry, your ignorance close minded views do not irritate me, it actually makes me sad for you cause you are incapable of thinking for yourself and searching the truth. By the way, Kevin Sabet said he is against big marijuana, and not so much legalization so your hero seems to be getting the message also. You talk about a book that teaches communism and then turn around and support the oppression of individuals, the last time I checked that communism. That makes me realize your the one not capable of understanding, but I get it, it’s hard for someone like you to look at both sides to see what is right. Your mind is closed off with your own beliefs but the best part Is people like you are now becoming few and your garbage fact less way of thinking is no longer polluting people’s brains as society is learning to find out the truth instead of taking the word of those who profit from spreading fear and lies. It must really be a disheartening feeling to know that things are not going the way you had hoped.

  • AndRebecca

    You are so open minded your brains have fallen out. I have looked at both sides of the issue and have chosen one. I’m not ambivalent. I am on one side because I have seen both sides. I have the facts and have made a judgment. Sorry it aggravates you so much to not get your way.

  • shane

    I know, I am so aggravated that it causes you to try and degrade me with hateful words and name calling. It aggravates me also I guess that times are changing, more states are legalizing, and now politicians are starting to support reform of the drug war. Yeah I’m so mad! Hahaha.

    Like I said before, if having a wonderful wife and children, a great job as a firefighter/EMT, an A average in information systems and technology bachelor’s program, and being financially stable makes me a lowlife, then I sure hate to hear what that makes you.

  • AndRebecca

    Sure, sure. That is exactly why you are obsessed with telling falsehoods about the wonders of pot.

    Do you even know what a lobotomy is, Rebecca? Obviously, not.

  • AndRebecca

    At least your name stellarvoyager matches your problem. Here, let me get my dictionary out and check lobotomy: 1. Surgical division of one or more cerebral nerve tracts. 2. surgical incision into a lobe. Now, a chemical lobotomy would be a little different. Does his help you out?

    I didn’t look at your video before. Thanks for this. There is supposed to be an American communist seminar video made in about 1988 or 1989. You wouldn’t happen to know about that one would you?

  • disqus_smWiOrvPtd

    Just to clarify; it was a communist seminar or was it an anti-communist expose’?

    This is good, I haven’t watched all the videos in the list:

    It is supposed to be a communist seminar, American, and the communists themselves are talking about what they intend to do to Americans. I didn’t see it. Someone told me about it being on the net and then gone. I’ll look at the Venezuela terror squads.

    It sounds like you are talking about Agenda: Grinding America Down. The full movie was available online for free for awhile, but they have went back to selling it. The documentary is about Curtis Bowers infiltration of a Committees of Correspondence meeting in the early 90’s. I found it on YouTube still, if you can endure the spanish subtitles. If that is not it, you could try a search on YouTube for Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, where you will find a variety of animals. They were not formed until the early 90’s though. Or you could go to trevorloudon.com, scroll down to the bottom, and in the right hand column look for North American Left and a list of front organizations. Most of which you know. Those are only current front groups. I have witnessed some good intel being scrubbed on occasion. Hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving.

    Look any rational non-drugged individual who will listen. This is how it works:
    The cannabinoids from hashish or marijuana are known to affect the very part of the brain that harbors empathy for life and inhibition. MRI studies suggest a potentially destructive affect on the gray matter in that region of the brain. The cannabinoids are also correlated with mental health problems such as schizophrenia.
    Now look at the most violent folks in the world: ALL the terrorist organizations, ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hamas, etc. use plentiful drugs, specifically hashish. They use drugs before and during radicalization, and during acts of terror. The barbaric Mexican drug cartels appear also to use marijuana. Our domestic drug gangs are proven from drug testing after arrests for violent crimes, to be heavy drug users too, including marijuana. Nearly all or our assassins or would-be assassins since Sirhan Sirhan, and likely including Sirhan, had minds influenced by abuse of cannabis. Nearly all our mass murderers and serial killers, Bundy, Dahmer, Gacy, Breveik, etc, were druggies too. The OKC bombers used massive amounts of marijuana, so did the Tsarnaevs, so did the Olympic bomber, and so did many others, including the Weather Underground of the radical sixtes and seventies. Charles Manson emulated the process of the Islamic terrorists, by using marijuana (instead of hashish) to brainwash his followers to become assassins. Squeaky Fromme, Sara Moore, very likely Hinckley, Loughner, Holmes, Klebold and Harris and many others used drugs, specifically marijuana which very likely deranged their brains.

    Or look at all the cop shooters in recent years. They are ALL druggies too. Their minds lost any feelings or empathy for life from years of prior marijuana abuse. We erringly assume these murders are because of the illegality of drugs, whereas in reality, the homicides come forth from brains deranged by marijuana abuse.

    Now the big question is why millions of other abusers and casual users of marijuana are not homicidal? Most certainly this does not PROVE marijuana can not cause violent tendencies in some abusers, but unfortunately this phenomenon gives us the false impression marijuana is harmless.

    And pot may be harmless for most users, though their brains are transformed into something different. They are functional but are not violent. So how can some abusers of the cannabinoids be violent, and others not?

    First consider there are numerous variables at work. There are about a hundred cannabinoids in marijuana and some 500 chemicals total. And we have no idea how they affect the brain, but they do. Now consider other variables such as genetic vulnerability. Some folks for instance have a genetic proclivity for alcoholism, but not everyone who drinks becomes an alcoholic. Some fair skinned people are more vulnerable to skin cancer, others more vulnerable to many other ailments. We’re all different genetically. And then consider environmental factors. Those with poor lifestyles, unhealthy living and bad nutrition are vulnerable to ailments, both mental and physical. Others life in pretty rough and violent environments, and develop similar lifestyles, Others have genes that make them more aggressive.
    The point is many variables are at work, and that is what is fooling us with the dangerous assumption marijuana is harmless.

    So, take Middle Easterners, many of whom have poor nutrition, suffer from low IQs (average about 80 to 84), and are very poorly educated and thus vulnerable to radical persuasion. But, they would not likely be violent, except by using hashish, their minds lose inhibition and empathy, which in turn releases a proclivity to follow radical terrorism. The drug cartels in Mexico are comprised of individual from similar backgrounds, using marijuana abundantly since childhood, and get involved in the drug trade. The gangs in the US are heavy abusers of drugs, specifically marijuana,

    So folks, usually white middle or upper class who use marijuana, don’t necessarily indulge in massive amounts, probably did not use drugs extensively in childhood, have good nutrition, and healthy lifestyles, and brains that are least vulnerable to adverse affects of the cannabinoids.

    On the other hand, take folks with genetic vulnerability, poor nutrition, etc, and subjected to radical ideology and violent environments, and who smoke marijuana or hashish abundantly, especially in youth, and their brains will lose empathy for life and inhibition. Plus with abuse, their brains re-wire and incorporate radical and violent ideas or ideology. Like little time bombs, they kill when opportunities arise as they see fit from their warped views.
