excerpt:
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
The haze surrounding Sanjay Gupta's stance on medical marijuana use has cleared. The TV doctor says he just wasn't looking hard enough.

CNN's chief medical correspondent announced his change in heart Aug. 8 in an online op-ed, Why I Changed My Mind on Weed, promoting his special Weed, a documentary premiering tonight at 8 p.m. on CNN.

Gupta says he used to oppose the use of medical marijuana. But after more research, he says he has changed his mind, and has apologized for earlier statements, including his 2009 TIME magazine article Why I Would Vote No on Pot.

"I have apologized for some of the earlier reporting because I think, you know, we've been terribly and systematically misled in this country for some time," Gupta told Piers Morgan on CNN. "And I did part of that misleading."

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I can't use it anymore because there's something about my brain chemistry that causes it to induce psychosis in me, so I know firsthand it's not for everyone. That said, I'm happy that my state legalized it for recreational use. I hope that the same happens on the Federal level soon. This is one where I support individual rights on it even if it's not for me.

I can remember when regular cigarettes wasn't bad for you. Doctors advertised them on TV.

Now they say if you smoke one, it will kill you and everybody around you.

"This is one where I support individual rights on it even if it's not for me."

That's the moral position on ALL situations.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

Not exactly.

Yes exactly. It doesn't matter what you want for yourself, you have no right to force that on others.


Re: the main topic, I don't understand why this is even up for debate. I mean, I understand why the morons in office toe their lines, that will simply never change, but why there's any debate amongst people with the slightest sense of reason, it's nothing more than arrogance. .

I rarely commit to absolute statements, Glenn. Let's not do this dance again.

Recreational use of Marijuana is NOT legal in the state of Washington. Legalization is still in the works and in my opinion it will not be legal for some decades to come (if it ever gets legal).

Recreational use of Marijuana in the state of Washington is DECRIMINALIZED as long as an adult 21 or over goes by the guidelines. As far as the Feds (DEA) are concerned, use of Marijuana in any state is ILLEGAL.
We just had 4 Medical Marijuana outlet's busted by the DEA under the pretence of completing a 2 year investigation of stepping outside the bounds of legal sales. Not sure if the DEA really had anything on these places but I find the timing questionable. We also had a couple of Medical Marijuana outlet's closed and told they were not following the law because they were within a school zone. If they were within a school zone, why did the state give them a licence. Also, when the news media went to the outlet's, they asked, where is the school? No school was anywhere near the outlet's.

I don't understand why Colorado, which is now operating "Private" clubs where Marijuana is sold and smoked is being left alone. Why dosn't the DEA bust them? These clubs are not for medical use but rather for recreational use. I don't understand the cherry picking the DEA is involved in.

If we decriminalized pot the Mexican cartels would lose their main source of revenue, and we can't have that.

That arguement is just not supported by economic data. There are MANY wonderful arguements that can be made which are fairly rational. That is not one of them.

Oh well. When faced with evidence of this strength, all my questions are answered.

Whew. I thought there may have been methodological or statistical questions unanswered. But this settles it.

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

If you want that then you need only look at two things; alcohol prohibition, and Portugal.
