Recently there has been a lot of anti-cannabis disinformation on how it is a cause of paranoia and rebuttal that it does not. I find it very touching that the anti-cannabis crowd is so worried about the possible mental health problems that cannabis may cause.
Did you know that in India over a century ago in 1984 a report was commissioned on cannabis, in an effort to get a determination cannabis was the cause of psychological disorders. 5a. The Indian Hemp Drugs Commission
Since then many reports have been commissioned to look into the dangers of cannabis, to which came the same reply that govrnments should not bother waging war on cannabis consumers. Now the strange thing is the anti-cannabis minded were repeatedly able and more than willing to ignore these reports and ended up making laws prohibiting cannabis anyway.
I think the most pertinent example today would be the infamous Shafer commissions report of 1970 that stated they found no fault with the use of marijuana. Richard Nixon tried to have the report redone to strengthen his new anti-cannabis war on drugs, Shafer refused! 5e. The Shafer Commission
Since the days of Richard Nixon the cannabis community has been tortured and persecuted through the legal system. Today many suffer the mental anguish that the war on drugs has wrought on the community. From encouraging distrust in others by the use of snitches, to living in fear of legal persecution. The last 40yrs of The War On Drugs has not only been mentally destructive to the cannabis community, but also to their friends and family. It is so nice the prohibitionists are worried about the mental health of cannabis consumers, to bad they're driving them to insanity with their tyrannical and inhumane prohibition laws!
We are now seeing the population of the United State is becoming frustrated with our governments drug policies, as was witnessed during President Obama's Internet survey asking US citizens what they would like to see changed, they replied.
So glad I did that screen shot!
"Will you consider legalizing marijuana so that the government can regulate it, tax it, put age limits on it, and create millions of new jobs and create a billion dollar industry right here in the U.S.?"
