There's very little I disagree with MM on, including this.  Most of you know I have a wife on chemotherapy.  We have considered pot as a way to boost her appetite, but it seems for now her appetite has returned.

Good news that your wife has regained her appetite!  I'm keeping her and you in my prayers for healing and strength.

I wonder what Ronald and Nancy Reagan would have to say about this?

And Richard Nixon, too?

And Barry Goldwater, the father of the modern conservative movement?

I can hazard a guess at Nancy's initial public response; however, I fail to see why the right to make a dope of yourself (pun intended) isn't at the very heart of the American values of freedom and individual liberty.

Not much, I don't imagine.  They're all dead. 

Seriously, I think Goldwater had quite a libertarian streak and would likely have approved of marijuana decriminalization.  Reagan and Nixon were both early architects of the modern day War on Drugs.

So pleased for her!  :laugh:

Pot can help some people on chemo (not everyone - my aunt had no effect at all, Mom could function virtually normally). It is wonderful as an anti nausea treatment, and way less stressing on the body than opiates for controlling pain. If she needs it and it works for her, buy it. Just find an honest supplier if you are in a non medical use state.

I know what they said during their terms.

But now is later, new information. Would Goldwater, Nixon, Ron and Nancy Reagan be able to "grow" and see these topics in a libertarian manner?

I know Ron said libertarianism (classical liberalism) was at the heart of conservatism.

Nixon was establishment law-and-order all the way.  I doubt very much he would have "evolved."  Reagan was too close to the religious right to have changed his public posture on the issue, though he might have held a more libertarian view in private.

Too bad Goldwater, Nixon and Reagan couldn't have lived to be 100 yrs. old with their mental faculties fully okay. Eisenhower, too.

We kept marijuana illegal all of that time. Did it prevent very many from using it? Did keeping it illegal, lend credibility to legal, law enforcement, religious and parental forces?

How many lives were harmed more than helped, by criminalizing marijuana?

The cannabis plant has many more uses far beyond nausea and other medical benefits. It is perfect for paper and other products. It has a thousand uses. Hippies have been making clothes and shoes out of cannabis for decades. The industrial billionaires, the super rich drug lords, the alcohol producers, they are all buying every Congressman in Congress to keep this illegal. Like my papy used to say, "America has the best politicians money can buy."
 
My father told me that the stuff grew wild. It was a 'weed'. Governmet people were paid to spray 'America' with' Paraquat' which was designed to kill 'cannibis' but 'supposedly' nothing else. They saturated America with it. We have been eating paraquat for decades. There was an obsession on the part of paid politicians to eliminate cannibis from the face of the globe.
 
The "Marijuana" debate is much more than 'medicine' or helping people. It is much more about what cannabis can do industrially that has all their skirts blown up.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

All of them. Every founding father in America grew Cannabis. It has a thousand uses. That is why they farmed it. Forget about 'getting high'. That is the canard.
 
Getting high has nothing whatsoever to do with why Cannabis is illegal. It is all about 'money', and who is getting it.

Clarification: they grew hemp, which doesn't have the concentration of psychoactive chemicals that marijuana does because it was grown for height (more height, more fiber) and not for drug use. Hemp is legal to grow pretty much everywhere in the world EXCEPT the United States (where the laws still consider hemp and marijuana the same thing), although even those laws aren't particularly heavily enforced as of late.

Yes, both are considered members of the "cannabis" genus. But they're not the same plant and, in many cases, not even the same species.

Don't forget it represents a lot of patronage jobs for Republicans.  That may have been the primary motivation for the drug war to begin with.
