Drug Czar site

I was reading one of Scotts blogs and it contained a link to the drug czar's home site.Did you know that marijuana was addictive?The site has a list of articles that are written by a whole slew of researchers that attest to just that.Now I'm well aware of the university system and how they receive a lot of their financing but addictive marijuana.This gives addiction a bad name and reduces the ondcp to a bunch of fear mongers.I guess everyone already knows that?I've never checked out the site before.It does have a space for comments after each article so it would probably be a good idea if every body went to the site and let them know exactly what you think of their junk science and spurious arguments.After all,they do ask for your opinion.Just a thought.You can connect at ondcp.com.

addiction

Well, i hate to break your heart but marijuana like most anything can be a physco not physical addiction. I've been smoking marijuana for almost 40 years and it's no physical addiction.You can not smoke enough to die on.

Uh-huh

[email protected],Vancouver,B.C.Canada I smoked my first joint in '67 and I was trying to be wry.I obviously failed miserably.I'll try to keep my fractious nature in check.I've been catching a lot of flack lately.At least somebody reads this stuff.I thank you for your comment and I'll try to be less of a smart ass.

correction

it's www.ondcp.gov -- a virtual smorgasbord of skewed statistics, bad math and twisted drugwar logic.
