If @repfleming and Tony Perkins really want to make the case medical marijuana leads to meth use, let them make that case to the multitude of veterans with PTSD for whom nothing else worked? Let them make that case to moms dying of cancer who want nothing more than to have their last few months free from nausea and pain to spend with their families. Let them make that case, I would suspect they lack the courage to do so, because they both know the argument medical marijuana produces increase meth addiction is merely yet another set of baseless fear tactics that ignores everything from science to sociological studies which prove the opposite.
Rather than stigmatize untold millions of Americans suffering from debilitating illness, like I am, how about we tell the truth and work together on polices that make safe access to medicinal marijuana a reality while always being sensitive to the abuse potential?
The meth argument is so ridiculous it doesn't warrant a response. The next argument is usually about medical marijuana increasing teen use (as a father, I'm sensitive to that). A well controlled study found that in MEDICAL marijuana states, teen use of marijuana stayed flat or slightly decreased.
Let's have a real conversation. If we're this worried about marijuana, let us ban alcohol and tobacco the same way. Unlike alcohol and tobacco, marijuana has proven medicinal uses. The Congressman has been rightly resolute in his support for Israel - I wonder if he's aware that the dispositive research on marijuana as medicine is largely the result of the work of Israeli researchers. Why? Because in that country they put science ahead of politics.
