re: Clowns luring kids into the woods in Greenville, SC - Elephino
The story is definitely not fake. I live here and it was reported on every news channel. The neighborhood moms won't stop talking about it and posting on FB....

re: DEA announces that marijuana will remain a Schedule 1 drug - like LSD & heroin - Elephino
Schedule III means less potential for abuse over those in schedule I or II. As discussed marijuana is schedule I primarily because it has no approved medical use and is still one of the most abused drugs in existence. None of that means it's lethal or dangerous. [quote]There have been countle...

Frequent, random testing? Testing immediately following any negative surgical outcome or accident? What if he's tested a week or two after the surgery in question and found to have subtherapeutic levels in his blood? Would it stand to reason the levels were higher during the surgery? That's what ...

re: DEA announces that marijuana will remain a Schedule 1 drug - like LSD & heroin - Elephino
It doesn't matter if you or I believe it shouldn't be schedule I. It is schedule I according to the rules and policy we have in place that recognize it has no FDA approved medical indication (unlike cocaine, morphine, camphorated tincture of opium, etc). THC and CBD are not the only cannabinoids t...

[quote]First, you don't know what you're talking about. [/quote] There it is, the standard OT can't refute anything you've posted so you're stupid post. I do enjoy this place. You give an anecdotal account with an N of 1 vs a phase III clinical trial that showed no benefit over placebo and wors...

You might think it's overblown, but it will certainly become an issue for the courts to deal with. You don't think if a surgeon accused of malpractice is found to have detectable levels (even below the established minimum) in his blood that it won't be used against him? You can be found to be impa...

re: DEA announces that marijuana will remain a Schedule 1 drug - like LSD & heroin - Elephino
You're arguing based on some irrational emotional attachment to the situation. The DEA schedules drugs based on things like FDA approved indication and addiction potential, not whether or not recreational use is safe. The Sativex comparison is completely relevant because it has been argued on this...

Unforeseen means that it cannot currently be predicted, but we can speculate. Minimums will certainly be important. Rapid, quantitative detection as well. A number of employers will implement a zero-tolerance policy for the sake of liability concerns - airline pilots, surgeons, city and school bu...

I don't partake. I don't care if you do. Period. If I were dying of cancer and wasting away slowly, I wouldn't turn down a prescription of dronabinol from my oncologist. I also realize that legalization will result in a multitude of unforeseen problems just as it seeks to correct others....

re: DEA announces that marijuana will remain a Schedule 1 drug - like LSD & heroin - Elephino
Perhaps you should go read my previous posts as well. I never compared it to LSD or denied medical utility. I gave a logical and true explanation as to why things are done the way they are. THC is legal and given in oral form. Sativex has so far failed in clinical trials on an expedited review....

re: DEA announces that marijuana will remain a Schedule 1 drug - like LSD & heroin - Elephino
I think the original challenge was "chemically" addictive suggesting some form of dependence caused by biochemical change. There is some evidence for this in long-term use, but not nearly to the level of something like alcohol or heroin. In fact, there is a recent article (unavailable to the gener...

To argue from a dangers of use standpoint, it isn't justified. Hemp growth was previously required by farmers. Recreational use became stigmatized back in the 1920's. It should be legalized, taxed and regulated like alcohol and tobacco. ...

re: DEA announces that marijuana will remain a Schedule 1 drug - like LSD & heroin - Elephino
First, I am not anti- or pro- weed, though I find it incredibly disingenuous the number of people screaming for the legalization of "medicinal" marijuana as a means to recreational use. Just be honest. Second, all of the conspiracy theories about government and big pharma are amusing. The marijua...
