    “This is a very atypical reaction to marijuana,” said Dr. Scott Bentz, medical director of the emergency department at Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center. “Marijuana typically, whether it’s inhaled or eaten, does not typically affect impulse control in this way…Bentz said marijuana can unmask other tendencies, but that it usually sedates people or suppresses their respiratory system.”

    and -

    “I wish I could tell you more about what that means,” Bentz said, “but the 5 nanogram cutoff was an arbitrary decision by the state. I don’t know of any good studies that correlate THC levels in the blood with clinical levels of intoxication.”

    and further -

    “It was very surprising and very tragic,” said Emelee Volden, Multicultural Program manager at Northwest College. “It’s quite difficult to wrap your head around thinking of what may have contributed to such a tragic incident.”

    Mr Walker is correct – legalization allows for the ability for regulators to regulate in hopes of stanching human stupidity to some degree & self-protecting merchants will put warnings on their products if required to by law (and also to insulate themselves from frivolous lawsuits).

    however, misrepresenting clearly expressed facts in a cultural custodian attempt to scare those who do not know better is an act of irresponsible dishonesty

    cwaltz said,
    “Uh if you eat too much marijuana you can also die.”

    DEA Judge Francis Young said,
    “marijuana is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man”

    J. Krishnamurti said,
    “if the mind is petty, however complex the problem, the mind approaches that problem in terms of its own pettiness.”

    so..700,000 cannabis arrests per year (mostly minorities) for the past 20 years, or 14 million Americans,(through both republican and democratic administrations) just doesnt merit urgency?

    I wonder if, when HClinton and BClinton and GWBush and BObama were smoking cannabis as college students and if they were arrested, and thus losing their ability to be attorneys or politicians, that they would have argued that ‘pot reform’ is something that does not require urget attention…?

    I wonder how Americans feel, now that the National Institutes of Health has confirmed that “the active components of cannabis possess anti-cancer activity”, being aware that their government has quashed scientific research into the medicinal properties of this anti-cancer substance for 80 years while at the same time arresting its citizens for using theis medicine?

    let me say that again – the US arrests its citizens for using a substance that the government itself describes as medicine – and should this continue for another 4 to 8 years we get another 2.4 to 5.6 million arrestees – that ain’t urgent?

    “The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.”

    prediction : if HClinton gets elected she – as Obama has – will determine that it is not in her interest to be the president who re-schedules cannabis.

    forget about the intrests of the sick and the unjustly imprisoned- modern dem “leaders” (otherwise known as ‘narcissists incorporated’) don’t care about the poor and the sick ..it’s all about the legacy, don’t you know
