Barthwell Spouts More Bull

Dr. Andrea Barthwell, a former deputy director for the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, said today's young people are suffering the consequences of smoking a much more addictive and dangerous type of marijuana.

"The higher (the THC) gets, the more rapidly you deliver a large jolt of the active ingredient to the brain," she said. "Today's marijuana is much more powerful and much more addictive than it was a generation ago."

Why does Barthwell insist that a bag of shwag is preferable to some nice two-toke?
Because she is promoting the harm-maximizing agenda of US Drug Control Policy which is to keep prices high and purity low.

  • BAH!! you can only get so high, i think our young are sufferin from parents that want the school to raise their kids and the police to discipline them. They teach them to be one way, individual thought is discouraged.
    Sad they are not worried too bad about drugs that make money, like vioxx, celebrex; the ones that actually kill people. http://www.prialt.com/downloads/product_information.pdf

    PATIENTS AND THEIR CAREGIVERS SHOULD BE INSTRUCTED TO
    CONTACT A PHYSICIAN IMMEDIATELY IF THE PATIENT HAS
    • A change in mental status (e.g., lethargy, confusion, disorientation,
    decreased alertness)
    • A change in mood, perception (hallucinations, including unusual tactile
    sensations in the oral cavity)
    • Symptoms of depression or suicidal ideation
    • Nausea, vomiting, seizures, fever, headache, and/or stiff neck, as these
    may be symptoms of developing meningitis

    thats scary

    Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear.
