    ISTOOK: The blunt truth — White house drug czar contradicts Obama on marijuana [W:91]

    White House docs say pot causes brain damage and lower IQ in teens, alcohol does not

    President Obama’s latest claims about marijuana are contradicted by research and official positions of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, which is part of the White House. And Mr. Obama’s words have anti-drug leaders worried about negative repercussions among youth.

    Mr. Obama claimed to The New Yorker magazine that marijuana is no worse than cigarettes or alcohol and he promoted state efforts by Colorado and Washington to legalize marijuana, which remains illegal under federal law.

    The National Drug Control Policy’s official stance, posted on the whitehouse.gov website, says the opposite of Mr. Obama on all counts.

    For example, as documented in agency reports, marijuana smoke has significantly more carcinogens than tobacco smoke.

    And as reported by the government’s National Institute on Drug Abuse, adolescent use of marijuana does something that alcohol does not; it causes permanent brain damage, including lowering of I.Q.

    Taxpayers have spent billions of dollars warning about drugs, often about marijuana, but these efforts were dramatically undercut by the president’s comments.

    Mr. Obama might as well have rolled that money into a joint and smoked it on national television.

    He told the interviewer, David Remnick, that his earlier years of prodigious puffery were “a bad habit and a vice.” Yet he doesn’t warn others not to follow in his footsteps.

    Since when was Obama wanting TEENS to smoke? If marijuanna was decriminalized it would be for ADULTS not teens.

    It wasn't like Obama was saying it was healthy to smoke pot.

    he and most supporters think legalized pot is less harmful than alcohol, when it fact it is probably much worse. My uncle died at 47 from lung cancer and pot was all he smoked.

    Funny my brother in law has smoked pot for over 30 years without any lung trouble. Also many people get liver disease from alcohol. Many things affect people differently. The point being marijuanna should not be illegal.

    Is it healthy to smoke pot? Nope. However there are plenty of things that are unhealthy and legal.

    well the white houses scientific review is opposite of practically every independant scientific review from every country.

    the fact is the us govt has spent decades trying to prove marijuana as harmfull,and has ignored any and every source saying otherwise,despite the fact a few scientists funded by a govt demanding an answer claim to be right vs 10's of thousands of scientists worldwide who have been consistent and show different than the govt claims.


    first mj doesnt cause brain damage,this was debunked in the seventies,it does cause short term memory loss but thats temporary not permanent,might as well scream that the earth is flat because white house geologists say so.


    second yes marijuana does have more carcineragens when smoked,but overall have been shown to affect lung capacity mostly,but less damage than cigarettes.

    further mj has been shown to kill cancer cells,it doesnt cure it by any means,but a pain killer,that cures loss of appetite from chemo,and slows the progression of cancer beyond chemo,sounds nlike a wonder drug to me,rather than prescription drugs that cause more problems than they fix.

    well considering thousand say one thing while the us govt say another,and the us govt outspent all of them,its safe to assume the us govt was the one paying for results.
