That would be good news if it wasn't making them stupid too...
 Quoting: BRIEF


Their home life is apparently what makes them stupid...

[link to www.beckleyfoundation.org]

Røgeberg claims that the IQ of children with low socioeconomic status is temporarily boosted by schooling, but when they leave school and become adults their IQs return to the lower baseline. If many of the cannabis users in the Dunedin study were former low socioeconomic status children then this could create the false impression that cannabis was the responsible factor, when actually the small IQ drop is only associated with these individuals leaving school.

Prehaps National Service-what is the solution to that?

School doesn't make you smart, it may exercise your brain, which is necessary for all parts of our body...pot mellows people out and makes them lazy, a few may use it to stimulate creativity and do something beneficial with it, but the majority smoke dope just to get high and escape reality...the long term affects are damaging to memory, primarily short term memory.

In the 1970's, we used to go to Washington Square Park. The weed dealers would roll free joints for everyone sitting around the fountain to smoke. So you just sat around the fountain and smoked weed in a never ending free circle. Sometimes we smoked for hours.

During the 70's, real working people could afford to live in Manhattan. Artists and musicians would play clubs like The Bottom Line and The Village Gate. Academy of Music was on 14th St. If you went below 14th St., 50/50 you get stabbed by a junkie.

Re: NYPD spent one million hours arresting marijuana users
One of the many reasons I could never become a cop. I just couldn't rationalize it morally for me to be out arresting people for growing marjiuana when I should be out hunting murderers and rapists. Just one of the many pointless tasks our police are forced to endure (and other even more meaningless arrests) instead of actual real arrests of the criminals that are a threat to the people. No wonder the lines start to blur and corrupt cops are created; forced to arrest people for meaningless trivial offenses that may or may not be even morally wrong, day in and day out between the occasional actual REAL criminal arrest.

Too pessimistic?

Barnwell et al conclude: "Participants who used cannabis seven days a week demonstrated no difference from non-cannabis users on indices of motivation. These findings refute hypothesized associations between heavy cannabis use and low motivation ... Daily users reported slightly lower median subjective well-being scores ( 2 points less on a 28-point scale ) ... Post-hoc tests find that some portion of the differences in subjective wellbeing arose from medical users, whose illnesses may contribute to low subjective wellbeing more than their cannabis use."

Hmmm, waste of time and resources much in a city such as NYC?

Absolutely incredible, what a TOTAL waste of taxpayer dollars and time when actual crimes could be prevented/investigated.

Re: NYPD spent one million hours arresting marijuana users
Stoopid police and prosecutors, smh. Worthless jobs, but they must uphold the drug war to keep their sorry asses employed.

A large percentage of the "good ol Amurrica" middle class would be homeless if it' wasn't for the black and latino's they prey upon.

the prison system, probation system, drug testing companies, law enforcement community, are all connected and dependent on the drug war. The drug war in reality is a form of welfare -for a class of home bred americans who traditionally would be in manufacturing positions.

It is obvious, users and supporters of cannabis are on average smarter than non pot smokers.


Another HUGE reason for the drug laws is to keep money out the hands of the people. Drugs, for the most part, are conducted in local markets. Empires, Nations, and corporations are built with drug profit, always have been. God forbid blacks and latinos profit from the sale of cannabis and use that money to build up community.

Re: NYPD spent one million hours arresting marijuana users
They will make marijuana legal, so the people can be like those in North Korea, & be motivated to fight what's coming.

Then they will tax it to death, so you wont be able to afford it. Then, they will have only government regulated places sell it. And they will have the mark.seal in order to sell it, and you will take the mark.seal so you can buy your marijuana, food, water, medicine, ect.

[link to www.john1429.org]

Those that don't get permission to be authorized sellers, wont be able to grow it either for yourself. Same with livestock, and home gardens.

People think making marijuana legal is great, but they have a much deeper agenda. BTW, the "medical marijuana" that they will sell, and are selling now, has been genetically engineered. It will, like the GMO food, change your DNA.

And make you easier to control.

Re: NYPD spent one million hours arresting marijuana users
Whilst I believe this kind of behaviour by the police is draconian, imagine what would happen if it was legalised and they didn't have the easy pickings of pot smokers to bully. Hoardes of trigger happy, power crazed, brain dead cops swarming around looking for someone to terrorise. Let them have the stoners as fodder and keep your heads down.
