Canvassing for Opinion - aka "Blairs Brain on Cannabis"

IMHO prohibition sentiment requires inherent addiction to status quo, an incapacity to visualise beyond the here and now and a desperate desire to know others might feel the same... Reform is not revolutionary, rather it is evolutionary. Having survived banging your head against a brick wall the evolutionist relishes having stopped. / Blair

Bullshit to Continue Unabated

CANNABIS: GOOD AND BAD NEWS (the malpractice of reporting bullshit will continue unabated according to unfairfax's Sunday Star-Times. /Blair)

  • Just half a joint can trigger short-term symptoms similar to schizophrenia: small amounts of the drug can cause paranoia, hallucinations and delusions associated with other mental illnesses. Schizophrenics' psychotic symptoms worsen with cannabis use.
  • BUT other research found that one active ingredient in cannabis inhibits psychotic symptoms in schizophrenics.
  • Aids patients with debilitating nerve pain get as much pain relief from cannabis as from prescription medications, and with fewer side effects.
  • Occasional use of cannabis is not harmful to teenagers, but those who smoke cigarettes as well develop problems, and are likely to be heavier cannabis users.
  • Smoking cannabis eased pain induced in healthy volunteers but less was more.
  • Marijuana skin cream could help with allergies.
  • Experienced cannabis smokers perform tasks as accurately when stoned as when they're sober.
  • An ingredient in cannabis may help prevent mad cow disease.
  • A single joint has the same effect on the smoker's lungs as smoking up to five cigarettes in one go.
  • Heavy cannabis use among vulnerable young people leads to more social problems.
  • The greatest number of social problems is found among the heaviest users.
  • Driving under the influence of cannabis is more common than previously thought, and more dangerous than driving under the influence of alcohol.
