If you only knew all the big wigs who invested in the grow shops in Long Beach. It's all about money. Of course they don't want you to know who they are... Look at LA narrowing it down to a few so the big guys can profit.

Pot.

Long Beach is home to one of the most radical - if not THE most radical - of the State's unbelievably wastefully expensive university system. It was always the dream of the brain rotted 60s 70s radical revolutionary element who, after the revolution, seized control of academia to require the minority of Californians who pay taxes to provide them with "free" pot. Many within the "diversity celebrating" Long Beach pothead power structure were trained by those overpaid and under worked Government "professors" before going into the self-serving California "public service" sphere.

Who can "spike" their pensions? Exempt employees - including department heads and most of their support staff.

I'm so happy to reduce my thoughts of committing crimes like theft. Prop 215 needs to be enforced as well. If you ever need cash and you own a dispensary in Beverly Hills, please let me know.

Realize the potential and strive to reach it for the many wonders of herbs will be there to guide you.

Intelligent cops would have handled the situation.

Unfortunately, low I.Q. seems to be a prerequisite for many police forces.

Even if the cops thought she was acting a little aggressive (Why I don't know since they were told she was deaf), why not just restrain her? What ever happened to the regular police who could handle situations without using the potentially fatal Taser? More and more they are being used on women, children and homeless people.

Legalize all drugs and tax them proportionally to their statistically genuine damage.
This and only this will provide the relevant information on their dangers, and allow a real competition between medications.

You can be sure that after a while alcohol and smoked tobacco will be expensive, and the life insurance will give bonus to the pot consumer, as the effect brings health benefices in the average.

It is also the only way to regulate the drugs, which is the only way to really protect the kids.
It will also stop the creation of the new hazardous drugs copying original one.

It is a not a coincidence that pot is over-used in the countries which repress it the most.

Drugs can be dangerous, but that danger is multiplied in the extreme by the prohibition laws.

We have to separate health from the government and states, like we have to separate religion from state.

Marijuana has been shown to cure some cancers and inhibit growth in others, actually marijuana (THC) can cure many many ailments but big pharmaceutical companies don't want us to know that so they lobby our lawmakers and reap the rewards from their side effect laden, man made drugs. Marijuana is not a drug, it is an herb given to us by the creator.

Marijuana has been used medically for 10,000 years so why are we as a modern society denied its use?

Below is an excerpt from a PBS documentary.

"DR. DONALD ABRAMS, University of California, San Francisco: Marijuana contains anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and probably anti-cancer compounds in it.DR. DONALD ABRAMS: I'm a cancer doctor, and I often suggest to my patients that they consider marijuana for their loss of appetite, nausea, pain, depression and insomnia. It's one medicine they could use, instead of five.

ANNA RAU: Critics like Dr. Voth are especially skeptical of these kinds of claims. How is it possible that one plant has the potential to impact so many different ailments?

Intriguing answers started appearing in the early '90s, when researchers pinpointed receptors in the brain and the body that bind with cannabis. Receptors can be described as locks on the surface of a cell, and when the correct key binds with the correct lock, or receptor, it opens the door and delivers messages. Sometimes, the messages are urgent, for example, that the body is feeling pain, or that there's an invader and the immune system must attack.

Researchers believe cannabinoids can turn down those messages, helping to temper chronic pain and autoimmune disorders. These special receptors are extremely abundant in the brain, but they are also found all over the body and in the major organs, the heart, the liver, kidneys and pancreas.

After finding all these locks that accepted the cannabis key, researchers made the next big discovery: The human body makes its own cannabinoids.

DR. DONALD ABRAMS: We have these circulating chemicals that we produce ourselves that really are very, very similar to the chemicals in the marijuana plant.

DR. PRAKASH NAGARKATTI, University of South Carolina: The only difference is that the cannabinoids that we produce are in such small quantities, and they're also rapidly degraded, so that, therefore, we are not high all the time.

ANNA RAU: Dr. Prakash Nagarkatti is a professor of pathology and microbiology at the University of South Carolina. He's one of many scientists in a race to unlock the mysteries of the receptors by using newly created synthetic drugs, instead of tightly restricted whole cannabis.

These synthetics have made research much easier and potentially lucrative. The U.S. patent database shows numerous large pharmaceutical companies have filed recent patents, claiming their cannabinoid receptor drug has the potential to treat almost everything: multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, rheumatoid arthritis, Tourette's, epilepsy, heart disease, obesity, various mental illnesses and the Holy Grail of medicine, a cancer cure.

Dr. Nagarkatti and his team of researchers were one of the first labs to prove a cannabinoid key can seek out a cancerous cell in the immune system, unlock the receptor, and direct the cancer cell to self-destruct.

DR. PRAKASH NAGARKATTI: So, basically, telling the cells basically to commit suicide.

ANNA RAU: Dr. Nagarkatti's experimental drug was able to eradicate almost 100 percent of the cancer in test tubes. And when they moved on to live mice:

DR. PRAKASH NAGARKATTI: To our surprise, we found that almost 25 to 30 percent of the mice completely rejected the tumor. They were completely cured.

ANNA RAU: Tumors in the rest of the mice shrank significantly. The results have been so promising that Dr. Nagarkatti is already beginning clinical trials with leukemia patients."

point out exactly where the constitution gives the feds the power.

what changed ?

answer NOTHING

go ahead, point out where the constitution gives the fed that power

until then STFU
