    Pot has no side effects?

    Use of marijuana can cause dry mouth, nausea, vomiting, dry or red eyes, heart and blood pressure problems, lung problems, impaired mental functioning, headache, dizziness, numbness, panic reactions, hallucinations, flashbacks, depression, and sexual problems.


    Lung diseases: Long-term use of marijuana can make lung problems worse. Regular, long-term marijuana use has been associated with several cases of an unusual type of emphysema, a lung disease.
    For some reason the side effects page does not appear when clicking the link. Click on the side effects tab above Marijuana Overview Information near the top of the page.

    I'd make some snarky comment, but I'm not in the mood. I'm just too disgusted.
    They've been doing this in California for years, despite medical marijuana dispensaries being perfectly legal with a physician prescription. States' rights my ass.

    I'm growing 2 plants in my green house at the house I'm building in Washington. This makes me nervous.

    It really doesn't matter whether pot is or is not medicinal.

    What matters is that passing laws against it and throwing people in jail for violating those laws doesn't work, and, in fact, only makes matters worse.
    Whiskey isn't really medicinal, either, but we learned that outlawing it doesn't work and makes matters worse way back in the 1930s. What is taking so long for t he same realization with pot?

    Quite simple really, alcohol is a recreational drug favored by many more voters, once marijuana attains that status it will become legal as well. The good (or is it bad?) news is that no constitutional action is required to lift the federal ban on marijuana, as none was needed to ban it nationwide initially (for some unknown reason).

    I quite agree. Some seem to just feel the need to exaggerate its medical potential.

    BTW, I spend last week in Olmpia Wa. While we laughed at the fellow on 4th ave. asking for spare pot, the bus rides around the city were at more entertaining. More than a few people got on asking what day it was, and were surprised what day it actually was. Ten they would sit and laugh for a few stops, rather Inappropriately. I enjoyed the show.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Could the reason be the government's habit of ignoring the Constitution whenever it gets in the way of what they want to do?

    Does anyone in Washington understand that the war on drugs isn't working? Does anyone care?
    The "war on drugs" is a very profitable affair; if you get caught with (enough) bad stuff then the gov't can simply take all of your good stuff and keep it. They call it the asset forfeiture program.
