The Comments are More Interesting

by Cannabispundit on 04/10/14




If you want to waste your time reading David Frum's article in the National Post, it's on you. I found the comment from Craig Jones way more in touch with reality.

David Frum is a smart guy who should know better. Most of
the arguments recycled in this piece are essentially a lament on why
policy makers didn't address the cannabis issue decades ago when the evidence
became clear that criminalizing cannabis use was more harmful than use of the
drug itself. Had policy makers in the 1940s and ‘50s not succumbed to the
temptation to demonize and scapegoat, they might have paused long enough to
take a close look at the already substantial evidence around them and concluded
that, on balance, criminal prohibition would produce greater harms – social and
individual – than the drug itself. They could have, if intelligent and well
intentioned, gotten ahead of the issue and mitigated many of the concerns Frum
worries about today. Many problems get worse the longer we put off dealing with
them – cannabis is one of them. It was inevitable that the longer policy makers
lied and fear-mongered, the more intractable the problems would become. Then
the internet happened.

Frum says public policy is about tradeoffs. Actually it’s
more like the trading of big serious problems for slightly smaller less serious
problems – but only if we’re extremely smart and lucky. The experience of
cannabis shows that policy makers can be extremely stupid for a long, long
time. Legal cannabis may indeed mean more teen cannabis use – but if legal
cannabis means fewer youth with criminal records most people who have studied
this issue would regard that as a net win for individuals and the society in
which they live. Frum would too if he thought about it.

Georgia beats Florida again

by Cannabispundit on 04/10/14


Georgia's governor Nathan Deal is taking it upon himself to make sure parents of children with Dravet Syndrome get the help they need. Georgia's legislature bungled the attempt during it's latest session. 

It is hard to believe Georgia has beat Florida in legalizing medical marijuana. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, just saying.

If we could just get her to watch Sajay Gupta's "Weed"

by Cannabispundit on 04/09/14


Calvina Fay expressed in a letters to Florida Legislature leaders that the Charlotte's Web strain of Cannabis was Bad Bad Bad. She thinks "Epidiolex" is the way to go. I don't know enough about to say if it's good or bad. The point is she does, because it's in trial stages with the FDA. I think she thinks the FDA is the only research institution in the world. Her quote i like the best is

 "There is still time to amend the bills to include expanded access to clinical trials. Floridians deserve medical treatment that is based on both compassion and scientific research." -Calvina Fay

If we could just get her to watch "Weed" She might just jump over to the good guys side.


So Much for a Pot Shop on every corner, or UFO's for that Matter

It look's as though Cocoa Beach will be the first city in Florida to enact an ordinance regulating Medical Marijuana. One thing is for certain, there will not be a Medical Marijuana dispensary, known as a Pot Shop to critics, on every corner. Cocoa Beach is doing the responsible thing by not waiting to the last minute to come up with rules. When city government scrambles or ignores their responsibility to research and mandate rules for Medical Marijuana dispensaries, you end up with a Pot Shop on every corner. My take is the rules are reasonable and will limit the number of dispensaries yet give adequate access to the qualified patients of Cocoa Beach. Let them be a model to other cities in our great state of Florida.


 

Good for Business.

by Cannabispundit on 04/04/14

I am excited to see that the possibility of Medical Marijuana in Florida, is attracting top of the line business people. This is a very good thing for the legitimacy of medical marijuana. Communities around Florida are much more likely to be supportive of medical cannabis when you have prominent business members in the community running them. I feel confident that the Department of Health will pick the best prepared and financially secure companies to operate medical marijuana facilities in Florida. This will ensure patients will receive the best and safest medical cannabis without interruption.
