    The governments response to the TIMES editorial supporting ending cannabis prohibition:

    “Any discussion on the issue should be guided by science and evidence, not ideology and wishful thinking.”

    Sorry, the government has no credibility since it has actively ignored / skewed and buried science that doesn’t support its ‘ideology and wishful thinking’.

    Prohibitionists supported seriously flawed research that supported their position and cut funding to Dr. Dreher’s study when it didn’t support their position, to the detriment of all humanity!

  3. MikeParent says:

    Narcotics police are an enormous, corrupt international bureaucracy … and now fund a coterie of researchers who provide them with ‘scientific support’ … fanatics who distort the legitimate research of others. … The anti-marijuana campaign is a cancerous tissue of lies, undermining law enforcement, aggravating the drug problem, depriving the sick of needed help, and suckering well-intentioned conservatives and countless frightened parents.”

    I smoked (not the indica that we have today,
    didn’t have it then) but sativa, when pregnant with my first child. She is 42 now and is an over achiever, always has been. My second child, I didn’t smoke at all, she is an under achiever. Always has been. This is what I know.

  5. As a nurse practitioner who has authorized many for the use of cannabis, I am happy to see this old study revisited. Pregnancy is one of the most controversial areas of cannabis use. I’ve read that there is risk of low birth rate and theoretical concern for hormonal disruption of male fetus from pregnant mothers using cannabis. As bad as that sounds, most prescription drugs have far worse risk. Check out my middle of the road clinical site on using cannabis rationally.

    If you’re willing to chance your unborn child’s health on one non-peer-reviewed study done in Jamaica, I’m guessing you’re the same type of person who ‘just knows’ GMOs are harmful, even though the studies say they’re fine.

    If you’re going to take these studies so far out of context to the point they’re meaningless, just stick to what you ‘already know.’

    My son is 25, excelled throughout school until high school when he realized there was nothing in the cirriculum that would challenge him. He dropped out after 3 or 4 attempts at trying to “fit the mold”, went to work fulltime at 16 and was managing a grocery store by 19. He is now in another profession and his salary has increased by over 60% since he started. He is making more money at 25 than I made anytime in my life including my years in management and his carreer is just starting. My wife and I smoked weed throughout her pregnancy with him and we were always honest with him about drugs and alcohol and tobbaco. He never liked cigarette smoke and thus has never smoked, tried weed once, didn’t like it, did the “getting drunk” thing with his friends when younger and found little joy in that, so only has the odd drink. Just the facts

    Care to show us the studies that claim GMOs are fine?

    I myself am a heavy pot smoker, I support legalization. My brothers fiances mother smoked when she was pregnant with her. She is violent, obsessive compulsive and socially inept. There is no possible way that smoking during pregnancy can be good for the baby. I’m not saying it’s harmful, but to risk ur child just to prevent some nausau, cmon ladies, buck up
