Constant Stream of BS MM Propaganda Lately

Recommended Posts

I'm noticing a constant stream of bogus negative propaganda attacking medical marijuana just lately. I have searched daily since 2008 and this is the worst I have seen it. There's a smear campaign going on. One would have to believe this is part of AG Session's Task Force. A justification before a crack down it would seem. They need to make some money and private prisons are the way they make the most off of marijuana. I smell them coming, it's in the wind.

The opposition is fighting the truth about cannabis with half truths and little tidbits sifted out of bad medical studies to tarnish THC mostly. Build THC up to be big and bad when it's one of the safest drugs a person could ever use. Probably safer than aspirin. Divide and concur by bolstering CBD, the part that is rather helpless for most folks when used all by itself, and cutting down THC as having only destructive uses. 

Here's an example of bad propaganda, fake news, squeezed fresh right out of the fat arse checks of the biggest BSers they can find: 

 

But the marijuana plant has hundreds of chemicals. Two get the most attention: CBD and THC.

THC, short for tetrahydrocannabinol, is marijuana's main mind-altering ingredient and the chemical that harms growing brains.

Since the legalization of marijuana, THC potency in Colorado's marijuana has skyrocketed.

In the early 1990s, the country's marijuana supply averaged about 3.7 percent THC, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

According to state research, the average potency of flowers/buds in Colorado more recently was 17.1 percent THC, while the average potency for concentrates was 62.1 percent. Potency rates of up to 95 percent have been recorded. And this highly-potent chemical is delivered in once-unimaginable forms, from drinks and candies to "dabbing" -- where users heat nearly pure THC resin with blow torches and inhale the smoke.

A team of Dutch health experts concluded that marijuana with more than 15 percent THC should be considered a hard drug.

Reading the marijuana news is like wading through an endless swamp of BS these days. Just like during the last presidential election. There's a concerted effort to smear Candidate Cannabis just before the election(state legalization campaigns). Throw everything at cannabis and see what sticks in the minds of the under educated, under informed.

 

Propagandists LOVE the undereducated!!!!

I usually get bud that's stronger than 17.1. And my concentrate is much higher. Or so they tell me.....................

Marijuana Advocates, Your Enemy Has a Name: SAM

Entrepreneur logoEntrepreneur
 
 

For those in the legalized marijuana business who fear a federal government crackdown on the issue, a guide to the approach of one strategy has arrived.

 

The Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM) released a report this month that highlights the group’s issues with how states are – or, in their view, are not – complying with legal requirements around the distribution of legal marijuana.

It also compares the marijuana industry to “Big Tobacco.”

The SAM report further alleges the marijuana industry “should form the focus of federal law enforcement, not individual users.” It calls for an information campaign “which alerts Americans” to the harms of marijuana.

The report mirrors many of the recent comments from U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has hit upon some of the same points from the report about states handling of marijuana regulation.

About SAM

 

SAM is essentially an anti-legalized marijuana lobby group, based in Washington D.C. The group’s mission is to take a “health-first” approach to marijuana policy. Rather than legalized marijuana or rampant incarceration for its use, the group asks for a “commonsense, third-way approach” to marijuana.

According the SAM site, that means a society “where commercialization and normalization of marijuana are no more.” It goes on to state it wants policies that “decrease marijuana use and its consequences.”

The group reports it has doctors, lawyers, policymakers and mental health professionals among its ranks.

 

The Report’s Findings

 

The SAM report goes after states for not properly regulating the marijuana industry.

The SAM report focuses primarily on whether states have worked within the framework set down by the Cole Memo. The memo, written by the Justice Department under President Barack Obama, essentially promises that the federal government will allow states to put legalized marijuana sales into place as long as they adhere to certain guidelines.

These guidelines include not allowing sales to minors, preventing legalized marijuana from funding drug cartels, preventing marijuana from legal states to move into adjacent states where it is not legal, preventing violence around legal marijuana operations and preventing marijuana use or production on federal lands.

The report claims states have missed the mark on these issues and touched on a number of issues. They include:

 

  • Teens are using marijuana more in Colorado than the time before it was legalized
  • Marijuana-related offenses in schools have increased
  • In June 2017, a massive illegal marijuana trafficking scheme was taken down in Colorado, with an operation that stretched into Texas, Kansas, Nebraska and Oklahoma
  • The fact Nebraska and Oklahoma have both sued Colorado over marijuana crossing the borders into their states, where cannabis is not legal

 

The states involved dispute much of this information as outdated. Whether this strategy works remains to be seen, but the battle between states and the federal government – and some lobby groups - continues. The SAM report offers insight into how the anti-marijuana legalization effort might form its argument.

From someone that has not been connected to MM until just recently and only connected to a few individuals involved in the MM cause I have been surprised by the number of people recommending I look into it . This started when I started having  increased pain associated with joint degeneration and continued even more  once I was diagnosed with cancer. I will also say I hang with a fairly conservative crowd so the acceptance of MM has become mainstream regardless of the propaganda spewed by those opposed to it . In deciding on if it MM was going to be something worth wile  for me I had no problem finding mainstream articles on the helpful effects of using it . I think  right at the moment the latest "cause " most people are hearing  propaganda about is the  villainizing of prescription pain meds . To sum it up , I think most people have made up their minds about MM and feel it is something that has benefits so they really don't pay much attention to the propaganda saying different. The prescription pain meds thing is a different animal  as people haven't had any reason to pick a side until they are faced with the propaganda ,so the propaganda is highly successful .

the last thing i heard was

 

http://www.businessinsider.com/medical-marijuana-trump-administration-2017-first-statement-2017-5

 

 

Trump, who has stayed mum on the topic of marijuana since the election, finally gave an indication as to where he stands on the issue in his statement after he signed the bill:

"Division B, section 537 provides that the Department of Justice may not use any funds to prevent implementation of medical marijuana laws by various States and territories. I will treat this provision consistently with my constitutional responsibility to take care that the laws be faithfully executed."

The best way to get Trump on board with cannabis is to somehow find a way he can insult someone by endorsing it. 

If Barrack Obama would come out and say cannabis is really bad then Trump would legalize it tomorrow. 

That's what we are dealing with. A policy born out of spite that can turn on a dime.
