The last paragraph of the story tells me all I need to know:

quote:
Two of the authors of the study were invited experts on the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs Cannabis Review in 2005. Several authors reported being paid to attend drug company-sponsored meetings related to marijuana, and one received consulting fees from companies that make antipsychotic medications.

I have been smoking weed for over 35 years.........

I'm a heavy pot smoker....not cigarettes anymore.......although i'm not one of those "stoner" types you see portrayed in the movies...you know....the "drooling idiot" type.

I have had emotional problems in my time.....

and I would say being a heavy smoker has taken it's toll on me in some ways.....I have to be honest to myself.

When I had my depression issue a couple of years ago....I quit smoking weed for a few months and it helped me get better......

Casual smoker I say is probably pretty safe....but a full fledge pot head...it soing to reap what he sowed...err smoked...sooner or later.

Maybe the drooling idiot stage will kick in when I hit 60...If I even make it that long.

I'm stoned all the time, pot makes me realize it!




It's sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carry the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life... or death. It shall be life.

Mule75, I noticed the exact same thing.... Notice also that absolutely zero statistics were revealed in determining this outlandish claim, just a few suppositions... what a joke

More holes in this study

The researchers said they couldn't prove that marijuana use itself increases the risk of psychosis, a category of several disorders with schizophrenia being the most commonly known.

This is just another blatent effort by the drug companies & all of their kickback buddies(yep,including alot of the media) to keep marijauana "evil" in alot of un-educated eyes.
I don't fall for "it"..........how is a beautiful Mother Earth given natural plant that helps so many medical ailments so horrible in so many people's eyes?
Because the pharmeceutical companies are the ones who are afraid of marijuana.
Think of all of the medicines that would basically be overlooked & not even used by mass consumption if marijuana was legal.
A great book to read is "the Emperor wears no clothes" by Jack Herer....it shows alot of government marijuana studies that were kept hidden from the public that show a truer side to this sort of story than this one that was put out by C(ruel) N(asty) N(etwork)
Educate yourself,Brothers & Sisters.

As for the "increased risk of psychosis".............
I can't speak for everyone,but I can definitely honestly speak for myself.
I have a strong background history of different types of psychosis from both sides of my bloodline.......& I was also diagnosed w/ manic depression/bipolar disorder when I was 15 years old.
They told me & my family that I would have to be on many forms of pharmeceuticals for the rest of my life so that I could be "normal".
I took many forms of different pills perscribed by doctors for many years(off & on)& all I got from it was either sickness from side effects,"trance -like" moods where I did nothing, or harsher symptoms of my psychosis.(Just as I had witnessed other members of my extended family who were on meds for their psychosis face also)
I was determined to find another way to help myself find MY own way in life.......so I stopped taking my meds & started meditating & reading as much as I could about natural cures that would work for ME.

I am now a 34 year old Educator/Rep for a big named company in the cosmetology industry(which I will leave nameless),I also promote music & am a freelance journalist married w/ 3 children & have led a very happy & positive life in my eyes,up to this point.
And I help survive daily with the help of marijuana.
I may not be viewed as "normal" in alot of people's eyes........but I have never claimed that I wanted to be "normal" anyway.

On a related note....

This guy is my new congressman, elected to fill the seat of Charlie Norwood, who passed away earlier this year. I think I'm gonna like this dude.

New Ga. congressman bucks GOP in vote on medical marijuana
BEN EVANS
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON Georgia's newest congressman wasted no time in showing that he's willing to buck his party's leadership now that he's made it to Washington.

In his first vote as a lawmaker this week, Paul Broun, a Republican from Athens, broke with his party and supported an amendment that would block the Justice Department from prosecuting medical marijuana cases.

Only 14 other Republicans supported the amendment, which failed 262-165.

In a statement shortly afterward, his office said the vote "merits some explanation." Broun, a doctor, said he believes states should be allowed to decide on their own whether to allow medical marijuana.

"As I promised on the campaign trail, I would make the Constitution my primary guide on how I voted on all matters," he said. The vote "was a constitutional issue pertaining to 'restraining' the federal government from interfering with the right of states to establish public policy on matters not specifically addressed by the Constitution."

All six other Georgia Republicans voted against the amendment, as did Democrat John Barrow. Democrat Jim Marshall did not vote, while Democrats Sanford Bishop, Hank Johnson, John Lewis and David Scott voted for it.

A dozen states have passed laws allowing the use of marijuana for medical purposes. But the Justice Department has continued to enforce federal laws barring the drug, with the Drug Enforcement Administration raiding clinics across the country.

Wednesday's amendment, from Rep. Maurice Hinchey, D-N.Y., would prohibit the Justice Department from spending any money to prosecute people who use or distribute marijuana for medical purposes in states that have approved its use.

Although Broun was alone among Georgia Republicans in voting for the amendment, at least one former Georgia Republican congressman has pushed for a similar cause.

Bob Barr, a former prosecutor who represented an Atlanta area district before losing his seat in 2002, signed on earlier this year as a lobbyist for the Marijuana Policy Project. Barr, who recently left the GOP to become a Libertarian, was hired in part to persuade his former colleagues to adopt medical marijuana laws, the group said.

Normal and Kenny are two words that have never went together....even when i'm straight.

I have had weed relax and soothe my moods and I have had it make me paranoid in times of strife. I love my weed...but i'm getting ready to be 51 next week...and i'm afraid it's gonna takes it toll on me in the long run.

When everyone else is out of weed...I have been told that I'm the one that always has some..LOL !

It's Saturday night...i'm doing this site...some "Youtube" which I love...and some Napster.

And i'm getting ready for a "blunt"..those "Brothers" from work got me smoking those every once in a while...LOL !
