Drug Czar Propaganda Stinks

The latest report from the Drug Czar's office implying that drug users are violent criminals or thieves is a reprehensible piece of fecal matter. Listen to me and libertarian Greg Raffetto rant about it in detail.

"If Pure THC Pills are FDA-Approved, What's the Big Deal About M

I'll tell you.

Cannabis contains over 300 known cannabinoids. These are present in varying amounts in different strains of plant. That is why different types of cannabis produce their characteristic effects.

People need different things from cannabis. Some people require relief of pain and muscle spasm, and some require thoughtfulness and inspiration. Some need the quieting of terrible voices in their heads

So THC is not nearly enough... and at the same time is too much. Like like taking the cocaine out of the leaf and using that -- it's just a totally different animal.
