    It's entirely relevant since a person's credibility is a valid point of contention in any debate. Sorry if you don't like having holes poked in your argument.

    Of course it's a serious post. Many physicians - and patients - prefer to use marijuana instead of marinol for a number of reasons you are probably unfamiliar with.

    But wait! You're a teacher, which means you must be more qualified to make that determination than a medical doctor who spent a decade of their life learning how to treat illnesses. How silly of me!

    1. Federal drug prohibition is unconstitutional since no such authority is enumerated within the US Constitution.

    2. Drug prohibition creates an unregulated black market that provides a massive profit incentive for criminal organizations such as street gangs and drug cartels.

    3. Drug prohibition disproportionately negatively affects minorities and contributes heavily to their high incarceration rates.

    4. Drug prohibition has a negligible affect on drug use and abuse.

    5. Drug prohibition costs billions of dollars in taxes and lost revenue.

    6. Drug prohibition misallocates resources that would better serve communities in the pursuit of violent offenders like murderers and rapists.

    7. Drug prohibition stigmatizes drug users which limits their ability to seek help.

    8. Drug prohibition drives up the cost of drugs which increases the likelihood that a user will resort to crime in order to satisfy their addiction.

    9. Drug prohibition was the consequence of institutionalized racism.

    10. Drug prohibition allows minors unfettered access to drugs.

    That's all I can think of right now...

    What, that you're not a medical doctor and thus are unable to speak intelligently as to the legitimate treatment options afforded to patients?

    Some runners prefer running one marijuana for the psychological state it induces in them to run further.

    counter-intuitive i know, but I've been told by a runner or two.

    Report it, if you feel it is.

    My reactionary opinion is that if we entrust our children's education to someone who ignores sound medical and scientific facts to promote drug hysteria rather than drug education, we are doing a disservice to our children.
