Your Government Wants You to Lie to Your Kids..
    #2908441 - 07/20/04 02:31 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

"By Bruce Mirken, AlterNet. Posted July 19, 2004.

From time to time, the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (aka the drug czar's office) sends out friendly emails called "Anti-Drug Parenting Tips." The latest, sent July 14, urges parents to talk to their kids about drugs and includes a link to a set of guidelines for "making a case against pot."

Apparently, our government believes that the way to keep teens off drugs is to lie to them. If parents stick to the White House script what they will teach their kids is that they can't trust a thing adults tell them. Let's examine a few of the White House's talking points:

If your kid says: "Marijuana is a natural plant; how harmful could it be?"

The White House wants you to say: "Smoking marijuana is at least as bad as smoking cigarettes, and you already know how dangerous tobacco is to your health."

The truth: Actually, there is incontrovertible evidence that smoking tobacco increases your risk of getting cancer of the lungs, throat and other tissues that come into contact with smoke. But, despite decades of trying, no such link has ever been established with marijuana. Indeed, in one 60,000-patient study, marijuana smokers had lower rates of lung cancer than nonsmokers did. How can that be? In part, it's probably because marijuana smokers typically smoke a lot less than cigarette smokers. But there is also abundant evidence that marijuana's active components, called cannabinoids, suppress tumor growth. A review of recent research in the October 2003 issue of the journal Nature Reviews stated flatly, "cannabinoids kill tumor cells," adding that "cannabinoids have a favorable drug safety profile." Unlike tobacco, marijuana use has never been shown to increase mortality rates."

Why not? They lie to us.....why not ask us to lie to our kids?

(if we educated them, they might be able to think for themselves.....)

teach your children that you are a liar early on so they will never trust you again.

"in times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings - artists, scientists, clowns, and philosophers - to create order. In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

"People do it every day, they talk to themselves ... they see themselves as they'd like to be, they don't have the courage you have, to just run with it."

so, marijuana is in fact beneficial for surpressing cancer....

i SO want to beleive that!!!! how unfortunate that i cannot!

now vaporizing and eating might be beleivable, vis a vis, carbonized particles in the lungs far outweigh the purported benefit of canabanoids.

there must be a way to create an affordable handheld vape that can be readily purchased and mass produced....

id like to invent such a device.

I used to own such a device. It was made out of a wood burner and a dimmer switch. Cost me $10 total to build.
